Sam Smith “Writing’s On The Wall”

Sam Smith landed the new James Bond theme for Spectre and provides a haunting tone on “Writing’s On The Wall”.

I can’t break it down like Grantland did today, but what I can say is that Smith’s vocals definitely fit a Bond movie and I’d like this even more if it was in a new trailer. (Spectre looks dope btw.)

Listen here:

Skylar Grey f/ X Ambassadors “Cannonball”

Skylar Grey is back with a new solo single!

“Canonnball” features the X Ambassadors, a heavy acoustic backdrop, and is additionally featured on the FIFA 16 Soundtrack that dropped with the game this week.

It’s odd not to hear Skylar on the hook as the lead singer of X Ambassadors does just that. The aforementioned acoustic chords and constant, catchy claps create a different sound than the majority of Skylar’s studio work. Her depth and songwriting still remains and my favorite part is Skylar’s last little bridge. As a result, “Cannonball” is one to at the very least appreciate. Get ready to feel empowered.
