It’s Friday, Friday…and you know what that means: The unveiling of Nicola Roberts‘ solo music plans!
The Ex-Alouder’s official website has just been refreshed–including a news section, a personal diary and a mini store to pre-order the singer’s debut single “Beat of My Drum,” as well as her upcoming debut album due out in Autumn: Cinderella’s Eyes. (For a limited time, you can pre-order signed copies of both. Can you guess what I put my credit card to use for this morning?)
From Nicola’s official website:
On 5th June Nicola will launch a brand new chapter in her sparkling career with the release of her first-ever solo single, the brilliant Beat of My Drum!
Nicola worked on the track with Dimitri Tikovoi and Diplo, and the single is the first to be taken from her forthcoming debut solo album Cinderella’s Eyes which will be released this autumn!
Nicola had this to say on the eve of her new pop assault: “for over a year, I’ve been in the studio writing my own songs and working towards making my own record. The time has come where I have to come out of my safe bubble that is the studio and share my music with you…. butterflies just got worse…”
Along with the news, Roberts also uploaded a special video teaser of the behind-the-scenes recording process for her album, which includes a portion of the instrumental for “Beat of My Drum,” which a PopJustice forum member has graciously uploaded. In case you want to listen again, it sounds like this:
Boy, Diplo just loves him some “Pon De Floor,” doesn’t he? So spacey! So 8-bit! Sounds promising–can’t wait!
“Beat of My Drum” will be released on June 5. (iTunes UK)
