Mickey Cupid - Oh You

Belgian-American duo Mickey Cupid, comprised of Brussels-born writer/producer Matt Nannetti and New York-based vocalist/lyricist Marcus Harmon have just unveiled the music video for their new song "Oh You", directed by Jason Cooper and taken from their recently released 4-song EP Parade, which is available now on as a free download on their website.

In regards to the track, Mickey Cupid tells Magnetic Magazine:

"'Oh You' is a song about the mystery and secrets we all hide behind in relationships and the games we all inevitably play with one another in relationships. Something like a cat and mouse game . It's one of the many songs we both stayed up very late, multiple nights in our different time zones working on via Skype to record. The distance between us seems to bring together different sounds, ideas, and energies that combine to make something pretty complete." Check out the video for "Oh You" below.

Laura Welsh - Ghosts

Staffordshire-born, London-based singer/songwriter Laura Welsh has just unveiled her new single entitled "Ghosts", written by Welsh herself along with Jonathan Lipsey (Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse) and produced by Greg Kurstin (The Shins, Beck, Lily Allen) at his Echo Studio in Los Angeles. The single is taken from her recently announced forthcoming debut album Soft Control scheduled for release on January 19th in the UK via Outsiders/Polydor, and will include her acclaimed previous singles "Break The Fall", "Cold Front" and "Unravel". On the record she also collaborated with an eclectic bunch of co-stars including indie polymath Dev Hynes, Robin Hannibal from R&B minimalists duo Rhye, Emile Haynie (Lana Del Ray, Kanye West), Scissor Sisters' Babydaddy and Amanda Ghost, as well as an incredible duet with John Legend on "Hardest Part".

"Ghosts is about learning lessons from situations and overcoming them instead of being pulled under," says Welsh. "To let go of the past and flick the switch on to the future."


Soft Control is now available to pre-order on iTunes.

Daniel Hudson - Superhigh (Deluxe Single)

21-year-old New York City-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Hudson has just unveiled his new 3-track deluxe single for "Superhigh", produced by Emil & Friends (Cantora Records, Kitsuné Records) and released on NYC independent label Joma Records.

While creating "Superhigh," he and Emil & Friends were influenced by the keyboard-based sounds of the 80s, such as The Talking Heads, Blondie and Prince, among others. (You can hear the influence of these same artists in Emil & Friends’ otherworldly, unique blend of electro, dance/pop and funk.) Modern inspirations for “Superhigh” also came from EDM, bass music and artists such as Phoenix, Skrillex, Daft Punk, Chromeo, Breakbot and Disclosure.

The 3-track deluxe single of "Superhigh" features the title track, an extended mix, plus a Acoustic Cafe Version of the song, produced and arranged by Daniel Hudson and John Maria. A complete departure from the electro-pop/dance versions of "Superhigh", the Acoustic Cafe Version is a mellow, live-tracked and unplugged performance inspired largely by other acclaimed singer/songwriters such as Jack Johnson and John Mayer.



"Superhigh" is available now on iTunes.

Also be sure to stay tuned for the video for "Superhigh", which will debut on YouTube on December 9th.
