The WelcheMusic team looks forward to The Social Network which premiers in Sweden on Oct.22. Already, the trailer has made a lot of buzz and lots of readers ask about the choir singing “Creep” in the background. Resembling Quindon Tarver’s take on Rozalla’s “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” in Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, a Belgian women’s choir chants the classic Radiohead track.
Already reported by Simon Vozick-Levinson at Entertainment Weekly, Columbia Pictures confirms that Scala and Kolacny Brothers is the choir performing the song. This Belgian choir recorded the track on the 2002 album On the Rocks, which features similar covers of Nirvana, Muse, Kylie Minogue and Wheatus songs.
WelcheMusic will definitely report if this will lead to a new trend of given rock songs the choral treatment. Unfortunately, Scala and Kolacny Brothers’ tracks aren’t available on Spotify yet. But we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
CHART ROUNDUP. Alicia Keys has finally made it to the top of the UK album chart with The Element of Freedom. The set knocked off Paolo Nutini’s Sunny Side Up, but Alicia Keys’s trailed by the classical violinist André Rieu’s Forever Vienna, which moves 4-2. Rieu’s best known for creating an international revival in waltz music.
Corinne Bailey Rae has the highest new entry with The Sea. The set is the singer’s second album, following her eponymous debut back in 2006. “I’d Do It All Again” was released on Feb.1, but is yet to chart. Bailey Rae’s most famous for her “Put Your Records On” single, which was released almost exactly four years ago. Ke$ha enters at No.8 with Animal, while Peter Andre’s Unconditional Love Songs claims the N0.9 spot in its first week.
Hot Chip’s One Life Stand tops the dance album chart, Midlake’s The Courage of Others commands the indie album chart, Alicia Keys rules the r’n’b chart while Muse’s The Resistance is the No.1 rock album of the week.
It’s time for the second volume of the WelcheMusic compilation with up-coming hits. Many of the artists on the compilation have already gained exposure on the blog. Cheryl Cole’s duet with will.i.am, “3 Words,” is finally available in Sweden. Look out for Scottish rock act Biffy Clyro’s Radio 1 playlist hit “Many of Horror” that deserves lots of listenings. Also, Simian Mobile Disco has recorded the track Janet Jackson never got her hands of – “Cruel Intentions.” The Temper Trap is also back with the follow-up to last year’s hit “Sweet Disposition.” Don’t miss it!
