New week, new podcast!
This week Angie Greaves (from Magic FM) and I are discussing everything from Bill Murray’s classical album to Stephen Fry’s new book about the ancient Greeks.
A second official biography of pop star Robbie Williams is being written with full cooperation from the singer himself.
Alicia Vikander will attend a special screening of her new film Testament of Youth at the BFI Southbank on Monday January 12.
Colin Firth will be joined by Take That at the premiere of his new film Kingsman: The Secret Service on Wednesday January 14.
Johnny Depp will walk the red carpet in London on January 19 for the UK premiere of his new film, Mortdecai. He’ll be joined at the premiere by co-star Paul Bettany and the film’s director David Koepp. The premiere takes place at the Empire Leicester Square.
The music world’s always tough to predict as artists don’t announce releases and tours until close to the time. But here’s some things we do know.
Madonna’s new album, Rebel Heart, will be out in early February.
She was forced to release six songs before Christmas after some early demos leaked. Is she still relevant in 2015? I guess that remains to be seen.
2015 should see the return of Adele. No news on when the long awaited new album will finally be released but surely it has to be soon?
There are constant reports that she’s in the studio working on new music so hopefully it’s only a matter of time.
Emeli Sande will also be back in 2015 with her new album, Who Needs The World.
Can she replicate the amazing success of her debut? And will we see her on every TV show possible as she promotes it?
I’m looking forward to the new Coldplay album, A Head Full of Dreams. Chris Martin has promised fans the band will tour after its release. I hope so!
One of my highlights in 2014 was their small concert at the Royal Albert Hall. I’ve seen them play some huge shows over the years so it was great to see them strip backed and in such an intimate setting.
And talking of touring – Take That will be out on their first UK tour as a three-piece.
They always put on a fantastic show for fans so I expect this tour to be just the same, with a bit more singing from Mark and Howard!
