We all know Adele, the global mega star who writes and sings amazing songs but what about her male equivalent? Jason Mraz has recently been called the male version of Adele. Jason has been around for a while – he is not a new artist. He is American and you may remember his biggest UK hit – I’m Yours, back in 2009.
He is back with a beautiful new single called I Won’t Give Up. For me, this is his best single so far. It’s captivating from the start as he strums his acoustic guitar. If you loved Damien Rice’s Cannonball, you will fall in love with Mraz’s new offering. His vocal is so pure and he takes you on a journey with lyrics which you know are from real life experiences. Hence the comparison to Adele. Tune in to kmfm to hear the song.
You can also hear Madonna’s new tune too, called Masterpiece. What I like about this is it reminds you of Madonna in the early 1990s. Her vocal is reminiscent of Dear Jessie and This Used To Be My Playground. Even that pure element that was evident on her Evita album.
I am a fan of Madonna’s dancey tunes, but it is also nice to hear her more melodic efforts. It is part-produced by William Orbit who Madge seems to have a great relationship with. He worked on her Ray Of Light album. Masterpiece is taken from Madonna’s forthcoming album, MDNA.
There has been more news on the summer concert front since I mentioned last week about Emeli Sande performing at Lounge on the Farm in Canterbury and Steps headlining in Rochester. It has been announced that legends Alexander O’Neal and Billy Ocean will complete the Rochester Castle Concert line up this year. Now that is going to be a big few days.
Speak to you on your way home on kmfm Drivetime from 3pm.
