To me he is quite overhyped. But the song is not bad.

Mm, it's an OK song. It didn't grab me at first listen.

The lyrics are a bit bland and sound wise is on the same vein of his previous records.

I think this has to be popular for a long time. Because it is very good.

Did Ilya ditch the brass on this one? For real?

I love this, I think it's superb. I enjoy Smith's delivery more than Demi's - you can tell Demi was added on later - but the contrast between the verses and the uplifting chorus is so interesting, along with the choir background vocals. Melody is great in the pre-chorus, when you think the verses sound kinda dark and mysterious, it totally brightens up in the chorus. Great message

Since when has Peter Svensson been a Wolf Cousin? What happened to his band The Cardigans. Hasn't he done anything with them since? They were pretty much the "No Doubt" of Scandinavia.

He's not.

What happened to his band The Cardigans. Hasn't he done anything with them since? They were pretty much the "No Doubt" of Scandinavia.

They're on hiatus since 2005 and they perform every now and then. I saw them twice here in Chile but Peter doesn't go on tour.
Working at music promoters and being myself a tour manager, his decision makes total sense to me: traveling from city to city, staying out for weeks and not seeing your friends and family to perform is an exhausting work and songwriting and producing is more stable. When you get older your priorities change.

Not sure if this was posted: Diamonds is the new single by Sam Smith, written by Oscar Holter, Sam Smith & Shellback.
Produced by OZGO and Shellback. Mixed by Serbhan Ghenea as always.

The album is announced and release date is October 30th.
Collaborators include Jimmy Napes, Labrinth, Ryan Tedder, Andrew Watt,Louis Bell, Ilya, Lotus IV, Two Inch Punch, Steve Mac, Stargate and Normani, whom are managed by the same person: Tim Blacksmith.

Great work I think. Not really feeling how the vocals are mixed but sounds really good and the project looks promising.
