Following the conclusion of their Celebrity Tour in 2002, boy band NSYNC went on a hiatus, during which lead singer Justin Timberlake started working on his debut solo album.
With the album, he wanted to portray a more mature image as an R&B performer, rather than a boy band pop artist.
He revealed minimal information regarding the producers and artists involved with Justified during its early recording stage, with his management and record label also reluctant to share any information.
The Neptunes’ brilliant, impertinent, full-body funk is, for the most part, what stays with you from Justified; their songs, spacious and shot through with ecstatic aaahs, outshine their neighbors on the album.
At the same time, the album was a declaration of independence from his poppier beginnings, as Justified incorporated more R&B and a bit of a racier vibe—one that worked well with JT’s voice and subsequently helped him break out of the boy band mold and kickstart one hell of an epic (and very much still happening) solo career.
British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran cited the album as an inspiration for his 2014 single "Sing", and Shawn Mendes' 2018 song "Lost in Japan". One Direction's Liam Payne, talking about his debut solo album, stated he was focusing on making a record like Justified.
A New Day... Live in Las Vegas features thirteen live tracks from Dion's successful Las Vegas show, called A New Day... and two previously unreleased studio tracks: "You and I" and "Ain't Gonna Look the Other Way". A New Day... Live in Las Vegas includes five live songs which weren't available on Dion's previous albums: "Fever", "I've Got the World on a String", "I Wish", "If I Could" and "What a Wonderful World". The studio versions of last two songs were included on her next album Miracle.
Live performances of "Nature Boy", "At Last", "Fever", "Et je t'aime encore" and "What a Wonderful World" are available only on A New Day... Live in Las Vegas CD, as they were removed from the show at the time of filming the DVD.
This live document of the Las Vegas show drives home the point that Celine is one of the most potent entertainers in adult contemporary music. A smattering of her greatest hits, bringing a balanced, well-conceived program that highlights the dynamics and versatility in Dion's voice.
She's equally as comfortable in high-tempo numbers chock-full of her signature vocal acrobatics as she is in quiet, contemplative moments. It's an ideal souvenir for those who have experienced the magic with their own ears and eyes.
And while it's not the most definitive document of Dion's career, it certainly is a stirring testament to her accomplishments as the standard to whom most vocalists aspire.
In an interview on Radio 1, Chris Martin revealed he’d sought advice from a Sufi after his “conscious uncoupling” from Gwyneth Paltrow. The Sufi told him that “if you sit with your experiences… they alchemise”. And although the results are more hazy blue than golden, Coldplay’s sixth album sounds like the work of a man meditating on things.
The realisation that Ghost Stories is Coldplay's divorce album might even cause someone hitherto uninterested in the band's oeuvre to feel a certain prickle of interest.
Ghost Stories signposts its emotional temperature from the off: it opens with a female choir, wordless and sorrowful, who give way to a distinctly muted variation on Coldplay's patented mesh of echoing guitar and Chris Martin singing.
Anyone hoping Ghost Stories might offer a glimpse into the complex workings of a soul undergoing the trauma of divorce, juxtaposing a variety of contrasting emotions along the way, is going to be disappointed.
There's no doubt Ghost Stories is a beautifully-produced album, full of lovely sonic details: glitchy, clicking drum patterns high in the mix, the sonar-like noise that runs through Oceans in lieu of a beat, the way the piano riff of A Sky Full of Stars gradually gives way to a vast, EDM-like synth.
