She may have an incredible voice and a killer personality, but Jessie J has something else too…awareness. This girl knows exactly what the music industry is all about, and she isn’t about to let it swallow her up. It seems that a lot of people took ‘Do It Like A Dude’ at face value, and whilst I’m not sure how that much irony can be mistaken, Jessie is more than happy to explain that the song was a direct attack on the glaring errors that have become so standard in today’s music industry. In this interview with Zane Lowe she talks about the years since she was first signed, how she developed direct connections with her fans, and why she doesn’t plan to be dictated to any time soon. She’s wonderful.

Two new Arcade Fire songs dropped today, taken from upcoming album The Suburbs. The band have been performing the songs at live shows, and now we get to hear the recorded versions. Zane Lowe debuted ‘We Used To Wait’, saying it is the first official UK single from the new album. All these new tracks are making me extremely excited to see the band in their headlining slot at Leeds Festival! Listen to ‘We Used To Wait’ and ‘Ready To Start’ below.
