After the jump, find out which music acts are performing on the tube today.
As Duffy’s sophomore LP Endlessly
is out here in the States today, the Welsh singer hit up The Ellen DeGeneres Show
for a rocking performance of her single “Well, Well, Well”
—complete with a brass section backing her up. (How could there not be?) We admit, we never really tire of watching the blonde Grammy winner belt out this tale of suspicious love. Check it out below, and then give her album track “Don’t Forsake Me” a listen here
A week after its release overseas, Duffy’s sophomore album Endlessly
is out today here in the States. But if you’re looking for a bit more of a taste of the LP than lead single “Well, Well, Well”
, head below to hear the track “Don’t Forsake Me”, which finds the Welsh chanteuse sounding—what else—decidedly lovely and retro.
The two-night Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball went down in London over the weekend and boasted a roster that included Kylie Minogue, Duffy, Nicole Scherzinger, Taio Cruz and JLS among others. One interesting performance was Duffy’s take on Mariah Carey’s 1994 holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” We’re not necessarily sure it was the best cover of the tune we’ve heard (have you listened to the Puppini Sisters’ charming rendition
?). But at least Duffy’s stab is better than Jessica Simpson’s knockoff “My Only Wish.”
“Well, Well, Well”
, the new single from retro-leaning Welsh chanteuse Duffy, is out this week in the UK. To promote the tune, the singer hit up the reality TV competition Strictly Come Dancing
with a backing band and crew of dancers pulling some fancy footwork while she got down on a circular platform. Give Duffy and her moves the third degree after the jump.
Duffy performed her Euro-pop single, “Well, Well, Well
” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
last night, which makes perfect sense, as the song features Fallon’s house band The Roots on the rhythm section. But instead, the Duffster let ?uestlove & Co. sit out on the sidelines while her own backing band performed with her. Missed opportunity there, we think. In any case, check out the British songbird’s brass live performance below.
Last month, Duffy revealed her sultrier side with the cheeky music video for “Well Well Well”
. Now, the Welsh songbird takes us behind the camera to document how the vid got made, made, made. Jump below for a peep at the video shoot, on location in Oxford, England, where the Endlessly
singer and video director Chis Cottam respond to questions about the making of her new clip. Sounds like someone’s been giving him the third degree.
After dropping the video for her collab with The Roots, the horn-blasting “Well, Well, Well“, baby-voiced British crooner Duffy hearkens back to a simpler time in the 50s-sounding love song, “Endlessly”, the title track from her sophomore album (out November 29 in the U.K. and December 7 in the U.S.). Listen to the bluesy tune below. More »
Well, well, well – look who has a new video! Welsh singer-songwriter Duffy has premiered the vid for “Well Well Well”
, the first single from her upcoming album Endlessly
. “I’m not guilty of what you say I do,” the mercy-craving crooner claims in her collaboration with The Roots — but there’s no denying who’s to blame for the sexiness of this video. Watch below.
Welsh songbird Duffy, who scored a modest hit two years ago with her soulful (but antiseptic) “Mercy”, is back with a new collection of songs. And this time she’s brought the funk: the encyclopedically wise students of history
The Roots provide the backbone for “Well Well Well”, Duffy’s first new single. “Why you giving me the third degree?” she asks in the new jam. Listen below and see if she deserves it.
