ALBUM COVER & TRACK-LISTING: Nicola Roberts - Cinderella's Eyes

Viva la ginge!

In the past couple months Nicola Roberts has taken the world of Pop by the horns and graduated from one-fifth of "on hiatus" top-selling girl group Girls Aloud to THE most exciting debut artist of the year. Her album is titled "Cinderella's Eyes" and it's lush, acid trip of a cover is featured right above. 

The album comes out in the UK on September 26th and features production courtesy of Dmitri Tikovoi, Diplo, Metronomy, The Invisible Men, and Dragonette - to the exclusion of work done with Richard X, James Ford, Mark Tieku and BiffCo. If you're unfamiliar with how utterly awesome and talented these people are and with their respective discographies, open a new tab and google them. 

The long awaited tracklist has finally been revealed and is comprised, in it's Standard form, of 12 tracks:

01. Beat Of My Drum
02. Lucky Day
03. Yo-Yo
04. Cinderella's Eyes
05. Porcelain Heart
06. I
07. Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime
08. Say It Out Loud
09. Gladiator
10. Fish Out Of Water
11. Take A Bite
12. sticks + stones 

Hopefully all of the unused tracks will be utilized in other ways -  the latest B-side is "Fix Me", a Tikivoi production that did not make the final cut for the album.

The second single from the project is "Lucky Day", which is ready to enthrall you right below:

EDIT: Here's some more album and song info: it's described as "a riot of colossal pop melodies, underground sounds, singing, rapping and astonishing honesty. (..) There’s ‘Yo-Yo’, which marries classic pop lyrics (“don’t want to be the last to know, will it be a yes or a no?”) to a post-Dalston Ronettes vibe and a pulsing, demented electro breakdown. The brilliant ‘Porcelain Heart’ is quirky, bonkers pop, while ‘Sticks & Stones’ is a series of frank snapshots behind the scenes of life in a pop band (Spoiler alert: it’s not always laugh-a-minute). Most tellingly, the breezily confrontational‘Take A Bite’ - “you push me to fight, everybody’s got a limit, so put ’em up” - feels like an object lesson in what it might sound like if, having been yelled at, heckled, told she’s ugly and crap for almost a decade, a 25-year-old was finally allowed to scream back."

I can't wait.
