Dionne and Tinchy Stryder's new track Spinning has been confirmed as the official song for the Olympic Torch relay. It'll reach UK shores on July 27th after it's long journey from Beijing, marking the start of London 2012's "year to go" campaign.
The Collective - Teardrop featuring Tulisa, Chipmunk, Labrinth and organised by Gary Barlow
The official BBC Children in Need single gets one of its most credible makeovers to date this year as the likes of Labrinth, Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk, Wretch 32 and Tulisa from NDubz present their own re-interpretation of Massive Attack’s timeless single ‘Teardrop’, with the new lyrics adapted by Wretch 32, Gary Go and Mr Dialysis. Under the name of ‘The Collective’, the song will be released through Island Records on November 13th with all proceeds going to the charity to support some of the most disadvantaged children right here in the UK.
The party started with the Ting Tings way back in June and since then they've been graced with the presence of some of the hottest - hell - THE hottest acts right now: MGMT, Soulwax, Dizzee Rascal, Vampire Weekend, Friendly Fires, Groove Armada and Calvin Harris to name but a few.
