THE VAMPS TEAM UP WITH MAGGIE LINDEMAN FOR NEW SINGLE 14

Fresh from scoring their first UK #1 album, The Vamps are broadening their horizons stylistically with their brand-new single Personal. Teaming up with American rising star Maggie Lindemann, the British four-piece have made a cool, cutting edge track with additional production from superstar DJ producer Digital Farm Animals. Personal is released on 13th October and will be available on all digital platforms.

The Vamps have been teasing their exciting new collaboration for the past few days with some cryptic posts on their socials, leading to thousands of fans guessing who they had partnered with for the single. Later this week, The Vamps and Maggie will host a special Facebook Live International Listening Party which will see them premiere the song and answer questions from the fans.

Personal is the first single to be taken from the Day edition of Night & Day, their #1 album. Speaking of their collaboration, The Vamps commented: “We always enjoy working with new people. When we heard Maggie’s tune Pretty Girl we knew she was going to be awesome. She’s such a talented person whose voice added so much to the single. She’s not just a pretty girl ;)”. Maggie added “I love the song and the meaning behind it – I think everyone has gone through it. My manager and I were on our way to Norway and he played me a very rough demo of the song that only had Brad on it. I thought the concept was so cool! We recorded it a couple of weeks later. The Vamps were amazing to work with, super good energy all the time. They’re cool guys!”.

On top of the exciting single news, The Vamps also this week announced their 2018 Night & Day UK & Europe Arena Tour.

X FACTOR UK: SAM BLACK RETURNS TO REPLACE ANTHONY RUSSELL AT JUDGES HOUSES 8

Sam Black is set to make his return to The X Factor, joining Louis Walsh‘s Boys at Judges’ Houses!

Following Anthony Russell‘s exit from the competition due to personal reasons, Louis has decided that Sam is the man to replace him, despite leaving the show at Boot Camp.

Louis explained: “Anthony has been fantastic across the series, a great singer and performer who we are really sad to see go. I had to think for a long time who could take the place.

“Sam had a great reaction from the British public when his Audition aired. So I re-watched it and realised we missed a trick not putting him through atBoot Camp. He has that retro 60s style viewers will love. He’s really likeable and talented and I can’t wait to hear more.”

Sam – who caused a stir at Boot Camp by proposing to his girlfriend on stage – added: “Obviously, I feel terrible for Anthony because he is not only an amazing singer but also a lovely guy.

“He has even messaged me good luck. I really appreciate the second chance I’ve been given and I feel so lucky to get this opportunity. My family and I are over the moon.”

You can catch Sam in action when The X Factor hits Judges’ Houses on Saturday 21st October, 8.20pm and Sunday 22nd October, 7pm on ITV.
