‘X’ Hits Stores and Online Retailers Today!

Cover-art-for-Ed-Sheerans-second-album-x-or-Multiply
Ed Sheeran’s second studio album ‘X’—Multiply—hit stores across the nation today and music critics are loving it.

‘X’ took nearly three years to create, but it is well worth the wait. Since 2011, Ed has been able to gain more and more success from his debut album ‘+.’ Since the album’s release, it has been rumored that Ed wrote close to 100 songs for this new album, so of which he wrote while on tour with Taylor Swift.

With extra artist input, the creativity can flow. That’s another reason why we love the fact that we worked with Pharrell on this album. The hit maker in both the hip hop and pop world surely added some useful advice to the creation process.

We recommend checking out ‘Don’t’ and ‘All of the Stars’ which appears on the album’s deluxe edition.

The album will of course feature some of Ed’s classic story-telling tracks, but it will also include several that are hip hop infused. That’s right all, Ed Sheeran raps on this album! The album also features a track that was co-written by Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.

Check out the tracklist below:
1. ‘One’
2. ‘Mess’
3. ‘Sing’
4. ‘Don’t’
5. ‘Nina’
6. ‘Bloodstream’
7. ‘Tenerife’
8. ‘Runaway’
9. ‘The Man’
10. ‘Thinking Out Loud’
11. ‘Afire Love’
Deluxe Edition
1. ‘Take It Back’
2. ‘Even My Dad Does Sometimes’
3. ‘Shirtsleeves’
4. ‘I See Fire’

After wrapping up their final scene, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth & Josh Hutcherson huddled together for one big group hug! THG’s producer, Nina Jacobson, tweeted the photo with the caption, “That’s a wrap. Thank you @SuzanneCollins Thank you @Hibbits. Thank you HG Fans. Other than that, I’m speechless. ”

The Hunger Games stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Sam Claflin bid an emotional farewell to the franchise as filming on the final installment came to an end on Friday.

The cast of the blockbuster movie series shot their final scene for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 in Europe and producer Nina Jacobson photographed a group hug between castmembers Lawrence, Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as the foursome said their goodbyes.

Jacobson published the snap on Twitter and added, “That’s a wrap. Thank you Suzanne Collins (author of the original book series) Thank you (director) Francis Lawrence. Thank you HG Fans. Other than that, I’m speechless.”

Claflin, who joined the cast for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last year, also took to the microblogging website to express his thanks to his co-stars and fans of the book-to-big screen franchise.

He wrote, “I just want/need to express my many thanks to everyone who have worked so hard for so long to make The Hunger Games experience what it is.

“But for also trusting me enough to let me be part of it. I feel privileged, honoured and so very lucky to have shared this opportunity with so many passionate & talented people. #dreamjob”

The final book of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian series, Mockingjay, has been split into two films, with the first premiering this November, and the fourth and final movie debuting in November 2015.

Ariana Grande Confirms Next Single

Ariana-Grande-2013
Ariana Grande confirmed that her next single will be ‘Break Free.’ The track will also feature electric dance music producer, ZEDD. We’re thinking this track will infuse Ariana’s classic-movie meets girly style with a stellar beat. After all, ZEDD did work on ‘Stay the Night’ with Hayley Williams and the track is an absolute smash hit!

“:) i’m excited & u’ll have it sooner than u think….. gonna surprise u with the 10 day countdown again. who knows when it’ll start,” shared Ariana on Twitter.

“p.s. don’t be mad when I say “soon” my loves every time I’ve said it recently I’ve pulled thru & u know it !! I mean wwhheennniiisaaayy soon,” she continued.

‘Break Free’ will appear on Ariana’s second record which will also feature ‘Problem.’ In a recent interview, Ariana spilled that she loves this upcoming album so much more than she loved ‘Yours Truly.’ She also revealed that she is hoping her next album is just as good, if not better than her previous.

Ariana hopes that her second album—which has yet to be named—is available for release within the next year.
