    Robyn has released all the artwork related to her upcoming releases, her latest single Dancing On My Own and her upcoming album Body Talk Pt. 1.
    As you all know, I really loved Dancing On My Own so much that I quickly thought that it is an early candidate for the Best Song of 2010. To see more of my thoughts regarding the song, click this link: Dancing On My Own review
    Release Date: June 7, 2010
    Lastly, here is the album sleeve for Body Talk Pt.1, the first of a three-part album series by the Swedish artist. A theme said to be prevalent in the album is ‘technology versus humanity.’ Hopefully, the album should not disappoint all of Robyn’s fans.

    With the American hit comedy series consistently churning out great covers of songs from the past and the not-so-distant past, Columbia Records is all set to release the third volume of songs that the show covered in the second half of its first season. The album will have a Deluxe Edition which contains 20 tracks. As for the Standard Edition, 14 tracks are included.

    Track Listing (Deluxe Edition):

    1. Hello Goodbye (Originally by The Beatles)
    2. Gives You Hell (Originally by The All-American Rejects)
    3. Hello (feat. Jonathan Groff) (Originally by Lionel Richie)
    4. A House Is Not A Home (Originally by Dionne Warwick)
    5. One Less Bell To Answer/A House Is Not A Home (feat. Kristin Chenoweth) (Originally by Barbra Streisand)
    6. Beautiful (Originally by Christina Aguilera)
    7. Home (feat. Kristin Chenoweth) (Originally by Stephanie Mills)
    8. Physical (feat. Olivia Newton-John) (Originally by Olivia Newton-John)
    9. Total Eclipse of the Heart (feat. Jonathan Groff) (Originally by Bonnie Tyler)
    10. The Lady Is A Tramp (Originally by the Cast of Babes In Arms)

    Hopefully, the third volume delivers. I have not been impressed by the cast’s cover of Hello Goodbye to be honest. It is good though to see Kristin Chenoweth back. Her vocals are mad, I tell you. The series has been consistently great in giving justice to the original in their covers. So far, no song has been massacred or butchered by the series. Hopefully, the trend continues in Volume 3.

    Release Date: May 18, 2010

    Hopefully, the album will be totally amazing. Kylie Minogue is one heckuva artist. I assume she will deliver with this effort of hers. Stay tuned for more updates.

    Filipina songstress Charice Pempengco, more known mononymously as Charice, is all set to release her debut album on the 11th of May.

    Comments: I think the album background is great. However, Charice’s hair annoyed me big time. The hair made Charice look like someone who had a really terrible hair day. As for her face? She looks like an antagonist seriously. What has gone wrong? I am not kidding. Charice looked more annoying than usual in my opinion with the shot used for the album art. The font used for the album artwork is pleasing to the senses though.
