Discussing the inspiration behind her new single 'Threads', she said: ''I made the fatal mistake several times and got burnt and that's what my new single is about. ''Kiss and tells, ex-boyfriends, friends, family members, the song could relate to a lot of people who've really hurt me.

Formed in Los Angeles, California in 2009, Foster the People are an Indie/electronic band known for their hit song ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.

But, it’s main selling point was still Pumped Up Kicks.
The song has gone on to sell, as of August 2013, 5.17 million copies in the Us alone. But the band would return to the studio and write their next album Supermodel, released in 2014. The album would not chart or sell as well as Torches, but saw them take on a darker, more mature sound.

Adventure, the debut album for French Wunderkind Madeon, takes listeners on a colourful and whimsical musical journey. It represents three years of hard work on the producer’s part, and it certainly shows. Every single note and vocal is crafted to orchestrate a soundtrack to an imaginary world. One which is filled with good vibes, catchy pop sounds, and a lasting state of euphoria.
Kicking off the 12-track LP is a prelude titled “Isometric.” Winding scales prepare the listener for the adventure ahead, progressing towards a sneak peak of the signature Madeon break. While brief in length, it creates anticipation and a yearning for what’s to come. Following that is “You’re On,” which was also the second release from the album. It highlights the soothing R&B vocals of Kyan, which ride a 100 bpm wave of pop melodies and synths.
“Ok” is up next and it’s a »

Though we already knew that French wunderkind Madeon was planning to release his debut album this year, we now know exactly when it will drop. Titled Adventure, the 20-year-old producer will release the disc on March 31st and along with familiar tracks like “You’re On” and “The City,” the album will bring with it exciting collaborations from artists like Bastille and Passion Pit.
“With Adventure, I wanted to capture the feeling and sensibility of my teenage years. I wanted the album to start very vibrant and pop and end with a more contemplative tone,” said Madeon.
“In making the record I both collaborated in the studio with some of my favourite musicians, and wrote and performed vocals on songs myself, two things I hadn’t really done before with my own music.”
Available to pre-order on iTunes from today, those who place an order for Adventure will receive instant »
