    Where is @steve_uk ? I see she has released a new single today called Stretch. It’s actually NOT BAD on first listen. :o

    The chorus hook had me howling. Why does it sound like she's burping?!

    Other than that it is obviously the song of the century.

    Probably locked in his room frigging frantically away at that cover pic. Only joking Steve. Seriously a contender for worst cover pic ever.

    ^Haven't yet heard, but am rather intrigued. A bit like Cheryl's last one apparently?

    I did see an article earlier that the album is coming...on October 18th?!

    Why she'd have a single NOW and an album in 7 months is a bit silly, especially as she said it is completed.

    #69 on iTunes as well

    Means bugger all, but that can't be too bad after a few hours?

    She looks quite disgruntled and EXPOSED on that cover, like the walls of the changing room have fallen down in the middle of Primark.

    She looks like she's gone to investigate a noise in the house in the middle of the night and found it's just the dog again.

    Or it was taken just after her fall on the street.

    She looks like she’s got up on a Sunday morning hungover as fuck to make the kids breakfast having gone to bed in what she wore out.

    Is it not back to Louise Nurding now, or is it just Louise? Her and Jamie are divorced now, no?

    For those who demanded a sultry sequel to Pandora's Kiss, here it is. Sure to threaten the middle echelons of VoR's Top 50 Louise countdown, this is the answer to the question nobody asked. 5 Stars.

    Ok probably expected but that is rather good :disco:

    Not quite what I’d have expected given the likes of Bunton and Martine’s latest MOR stuff but, hey it’s different.

    Yes, it sounds like a Cheryl comeback single. Given that everyone has now forgotten that she tried that and failed already.

    I can see why it’s being compared with Cheryl, I wouldn’t be surprised if It was a song they were keeping for her before it went a bit tits up. But it reminds me more of Delta’s Think About You

    Pervy gym songs to the front

    It’s really good though :disco:

    The cover is hideous although thankfully the album cover is much better, but this is WAY better than I think most people expected. I thought she was going to go down the mumsy Martine McCutcheon or Claire Richards route, but I like that she has stayed pretty modern. Won't do a fig but my interest is piqued for the album!

    This really could be a (good) Little Mix single

    Did we know Clean Bandit are involved in the album as are Raye and Eg White?!

    Stretching out that wallet :disco:

    I like it! It's actually kind of what I was expecting. She has to be the most disappointing person I've seen live though.

    I actually have a signed Stuck In The Middle With You cd from a signing in HMV Brighton. She had a cold and sniffed her way through a hello. She also asked whether the CDs being sold would count towards the charts :D

    I disagree doll - most pop vocals back in her 'prime' were much more paper thin than most pop acts bring out in 2019 (similar to how a CD:UK mimetastic performance was considered good 20 years back and would now be laughed off the telly). I actually think she also sounds somewhat stronger on parts of this than most of her 90's output.

    Having just watched the video I must say I think this song is GOOD. The only frustrating thing is when you hear “stretch” at the chorus it sounds really rather perturbing. Other than that it’s a solid 7/10.

    It sort of sounds like she was speaking and a burp came out. Other than that is much better than you would expect.

    She found a nice looking fellow to drape herself over in the video too. However, no to 'LIL LOU RECORDS'.

    It’s ok but I get bored of the song and video after about a minute or so.

    Not sure of the poster image either. I think she’s looking a bit cheap this time round to be honest.

    It's old warehouses at the back of Yorkhill right next to the Clydeside Expressway. They used to run illegal raves there years ago. @monsta has a club night there. There's different rooms, with different sizes.

    Yeah, I do not understand the long wait for either. Album in July, tour in October would have made more sense.
