On Oct.6, Grey’s Anatomy will return to Swedish TV screens for a complete new season. The ABC TV show has already premiered in the States. A trailer is currently showcased on cable network Kanal 5 and the TV campaign is also part of Sony Music’s promotional efforts for Manchester duo Hurts. The group debuted with the single “Better than Love” before the summer.
The track was primarily a hit on the clubs, while radio picked up “Wonderful Life.” The video has currently tracked 4m views on YouTube. “Stay” will be issued commercially later this year but is already picking up a lot of interest due to it being the soundtrack to the Grey’s promo trailer.

While the WelcheMusic team looks forward to the up-coming flick The Social Network, we’re just as disappointed to learn that Justin Timberlake is done making music. According to a recent The Sun news piece, the singer does not have plans for a new album. His latest set Future Sex/Love Sounds was issued in September 2006 and spawned no less than six hit singles.
Justin Timberlake plays Napster founder Sean Parker in The Social Network and the trailer includes a choir version of Radiohead’s “Creep,” far from the usual r’n’b routine from Timberlake.
Although Timberlake hasn’t put out any music as a solo artist, lately he’s been featured on hits with Jamie Foxx, Esmee Danters, Timbaland and Chiara.
