Ellie Goulding announces 'Streets Of London' charity concert at the Wembley SSE Arena on 20th December
Ellie Goulding has announced her annual charity concert to raise money for London homeless charity “Streets of London”. This year Goulding, who is an ambassador for the charity, will be joined by the likes of Dua Lipa, Bastille, Sigrid, Mabel, Grace Carter, Jax Jones, Dermot Kennedy and many more on stage at Wembley SSE Arena on 20th December. Pre-order tickets here: https://ellie.lnk.to/SOL
Since 2014, Global UN Ambassador Ellie Goulding's annual Christmas gig for Streets of London has raised more than £300,000, which has helped the charity to fund dozens of projects that are helping homeless people turn their lives around.
Speaking about the concert and her work with Streets of London, Ellie Goulding explains:-
“Every year the event we’ve done for Streets of London has been absolutely magical and moving, I know this year will be the greatest yet.”
Homelessness is a major problem in London today. On any given night in London, there are likely to be more than 1,000 people sleeping out on the streets (nearly treble the number there were in 2010) many more are in hostels or temporary accommodation and don't have a home to call their own. This can be incredibly damaging, and the average life expectancy of a homeless rough sleeper is just 47 years old.
Streets of London are currently funding twelve projects providing specialist support to get people off the streets and make a fresh start. Projects include a winter night shelter for vulnerable rough sleepers, a rehab hostel for people recovering from addictions, also several employment support projects, which help homeless people to look for jobs and then find and keep work.
People end up homeless for many different reasons and many need specialist help to get back on their feet and find a secure home. Those who have been homeless can require a lot of different types of support beyond help with securing housing, such as with mental health and addiction issues, understanding their rights, and with building their employability, skills and self-confidence.
With the right support, people who are homeless can turn their lives around. There are lots of great charities throughout London that work hard to provide these services; many of them are small and not very well-known and funding can be hard to secure.
The UK is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and London one of the wealthiest cities - no one should be spending night after night sleeping on the street. By working together we can make a real difference and help support those who are struggling to get off the streets for good.
The involvement of Ellie, and the many stars who have generously supported Streets of London by giving their time and talents, also helps raise awareness about homelessness, particularly among young people, engaging them in the issue and the need to work for change.

Groundbreaking Norwegian pop star Sigrid releases the highly-anticipated new single Sucker Punch, following her critically acclaimed RAW EP and incredible festival performances at Reading & Leeds and Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend. Highlighting the breadth of Sigrid’s maturing talent and aptitude for song writing, Sucker Punch cements the 22-year-old’s rise to pop prominence. Sigrid also drops an augmented reality lyric video using new technology, which has a ‘smartphone’ aesthetic mirroring the masses of social content that populates our life every day, with the augmented reality twist.
“Sucker Punch is one of my favourite songs so far and I’ve been so excited for release day! Emily Warren, Martin Sjølie and I made it when we were in Ocean Sound Recordings in my home town a while ago. The song is just a result of our usual way of working: talking, cooking, strolling, singing, dancing, experimenting...! Ugh it was so fun - just like the track itself.” Says Sigrid

With the colossal A-List record ‘High Five’, the certified-Gold Strangers, and zeitgeist defining Don’t Kill My Vibe – which catapulted Sigrid into the public consciousness last year – the pop star will play her biggest headline to date on 12 November, as she takes on O2 Brixton Academy. Sigrid will also support George Ezra in March on his arena tour, as well as Maroon 5 in June.
From winning the BBC Sound of 2018, to moving Helen Mirren on the Graham Norton Show and storming the stage at her Shepherds Bush Empire headline, Sigrid’s unforgettably impassioned live performances have sparked mass appreciation and defiant, rebellious pop songs. With her Spotify following tripling since the start of the year, and streaming numbers reaching almost 400M globally, Sigrid is undoubtedly set to continue her ascent with non-conformist and progressive attitudes to femininity with ‘Sucker Punch’.

Sucker Punch is out now on Island Records.
Swedish rising pop artist AmwinN has released her new single ‘DeLorean’, out now via Universal Music Sweden. She is outspoken on the track - lamenting on the men of today, wishing she could go back in time to visit her ideal men of the past.
Of the track, Amwin says:
“Making this song, we kind of just wanted to play around with how much I dislike the dudes in this day and age. I often go back in time and think ‘shit, if only I could get on Leonardo Dicaprio circa Romeo and Juliet or Kurt Cobain around when 'Nevermind' came out”. These Instagram models and YouTube dudes nowadays do absolutely nothing for me. Just makes me wish I had a time machine so I could head back and get what I really want.”
Listen to the track here here: https://AMWIN.lnk.to/DeLorean
“Wish I had a machine to go back in time,
’Cos future boys are lames, can’t get nothing right
I’d take that b*tch way back, back to ’99
And f*ck Leo DiCaprio in his prime…
DeLorean” - Lyrics from ‘DeLorean’
Amwin - real name Amanda Winberg - has been making her mark on the international music scene recently, with her previous big single ‘Uber’ which earned her over 1 million online streams alone.
Critically too, Amwin has already attracted the attention of tastemaker press, with Clash commenting that she “inhabits a world daubed in vivid colour, with those fluro tones used to craft a deeply personal spell”, and PopDust noting that “her lyrics are an authentic portrayal of the (often unsaid) thoughts that bounce around our heads”. The Interns remarked that she is “another Swedish newcomer that you need to be paying attention to”.
New York-based singer/songwriter/producer Amber Mark has returned with infectious new single ‘Put You On’ featuring Virginia native rapper/singer DRAM via PMR/Virgin Records. The brand-new single from one of 2018’s hottest talents oozes East Coast sensibilities and summer vibes, all the while displaying Amber’s trademark husky vocal tones and sublime pop melodies. ‘Put Me On Feat. DRAM’ is available to stream and purchase on DSPs from HERE.
Discussing how the track came together, Amber reveals:-
“The idea of the song came from wanting to talk about a woman who made it out of the hood in NY and into the top of success. Cardi B was really blowing up at the time and I thought a similar story to hers would be such a vibe for the production. The beat sounded so much like summer in NY and I figured it would be dope to lyrically make a subtle NY anthem.”
‘Put You On Feat. DRAM’ is the follow up to Amber’s critically acclaimed ‘Conexão’ EP, released back in May, which found Amber weaving her extensive knowledge of international styles into a gorgeous musical tapestry embracing everything from slinky soul to Brazilian bossa nova. Upon release NME professed, “honest, eloquent and impossibly talented, Amber Mark is a breath of fresh air” while Pitchfork praised the EP as a “remarkably accomplished. Even at just four songs, Amber Mark sounds like a veteran of pop songcraft and performance”. Nowhere is this more evident than on the EP’s imperious lead single ‘Love Me Right’, a flawless indicator of Amber’s skills as both a songwriter and a producer, or on the Sade-approved cut ‘Love Is Stronger Than Pride’.
Having blown crowds away in the spring at her sold out headline show at Camden Assembly in support of her ‘Conexão’ EP, Amber will return to these shores for a run of dates in support of Leon Bridges in the autumn when she joins him on his European tour.

New Zealand pop singer and songwriter Robinson has released her brand new single ‘Medicine’, out now on Ministry Of Sound Records. With over 55 million streams to her name to date and a record which has just gone Platinum in Australia, follow-up ‘Medicine’ is the very highly-anticipated new single from the 22-year-old artist.
The track, co-written by Robinson, is a searingly honest reflection on the pain of heartbreak, and a realisation of the pain caused in past relationships. Robinson says:-
“Medicine is about not realising the weight of your actions and words until it happens to you. It’s about having a taste of your own medicine”.
Continuing her knack for a pop anthem filled with honesty, attitude and melody, ‘Medicine’ follows Robinson’s single ‘Nothing To Regret’ which was released earlier this year to widespread acclaim. NME described the track as “all subtle builds and triumphant climaxes, with a huge, emotive earworm of a chorus…a pop juggernaut” with The 405 dubbing it “an immediate attention-grabber…you will undoubtedly find yourself listening to it on repeat”. Chosen as one of their Next Wave artists, Clash said of Robinson that “her songwriting is remarkably mature, incredibly fresh.” It was championed by Zane Lowe at Beats 1, with further support at BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM. At only 22-years-old, Robinson is one to watch.

Commercially as well as critically, reception to Robinson’s output to date has been unprecedented. ‘Nothing To Regret’ is certified platinum in Australia, and its official video has surpassed 1.5 million views on YouTube.
LA Women Release ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ on Island Records
New Zealand trio LA Women have been quietly building a name for themselves as they released a series of slick, soulful and impressively crafted, RnB infused pop. Following the release of ‘Conscience’ last week; a sultry, blissed out slow jam, LA Women’s today release their highly anticipated debut EP ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ and as singer Jake describes “the song is a romanticised reflection of my experience with partying, alcohol, drugs, and all things that take a toll on my ‘conscience’”.
The trio, who hail from the Wairarapa, an area in the deep south of New Zealand, is made up of cousins Jake Schdroski and Zac Emerson and school friend Jesse Brown. They formed in 2016 and released the much hyped ‘Hurricane Love’ the following year, hitting some of the most reputable playlists on Spotify and winning early support from the likes of Complex & MTV, to name a few.
The tracklist for ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ is:

New Zealand-born rising pop act Robinson today reveals her brand-new track, ‘Don’t Trust Myself’, out now via Ministry of Sound/Sony.
Watch the lyric video for ‘Don’t Trust Myself’ HERE
The emotional and melodic song highlights Robinson’s ability to create intimate lyrics over catchy melodies, all whilst showcasing her vocal prowess. The track was co-written by Robinson and produced by Sam de Jong (30 Seconds to Mars, Noah Kahan).
Robinson says of the track:
“Don’t Trust Myself’ is about falling too hard, too soon for someone - it’s about the idea of them being etched inside your head making it hard to realise who they truly are and that you can’t trust yourself around them because your heart seems to override your head.’
‘Don’t Trust Myself’ is Robinson’s second release this year, following ‘Nothing to Regret’, which was released in February. The song - called an ‘immediate attention-grabber’ by the 405 - has now amassed over 50 million streams worldwide and has achieved Platinum certification in Australia and Gold in New Zealand. ‘Nothing to Regret’ has also received support from Zane Lowe at Beats 1 as well as Radio 1. At only 21-years-old, Robinson is one to watch.
‘Don’t Trust Myself’ is released ahead of her highly-anticipated debut UK performance at Thousand Island in The Garage, London tonight. For tickets, visit https://myticket.co.uk/artists/robinson.
