Eurotrash clubbanger alert.
Girls Aloud's requisite "face", Cheryl (hold the Tweedy/Cole), has officially unleashed to the world her third solo effort, A Million Lights, on the back of the Calvin Harris produced thumper "Call My Name". The Alex Da Kid produced "Under the Sun" is the second offering, set for a September release (with a live tour to follow in October). So I'm guessing the GA reunion will be after that. (sigh)
I'm pleased to say that the majority of A Million Lights is not quite as synthtastic everything-in-the-sink as "Call My Name" is. It even includes a Lana Del Rey co-write in "Ghetto Baby" and a Taio Cruz co-write in "Mechanics of the Heart". But the one I've been spinning most is the unfortunately titled "Sexy Den A Mutha", crafted by one of my fave producers of the mo', Jim Beanz. Jim, if you recall, gave us this little gem by JoJo (Hey Interscope/Blackground, where the hell is Jumping Trains?).
