Mike Watson Makes Solo Debut With 'Lying For Love' - Watch Now! (Exclusive Premiere)

Mike Watson is moving past his boy band beginnings and stepping out solo on his debut single “Lying For Love,” which is premiering exclusively on today (September 1).

The 26-year-old solo singer, who first found success in Japan and Europe as part of the group The United, already found fans in acts like Anne-Marie and Martin Solveig with his covers on YouTube.

“I’m really excited to have my first solo work out there for everyone to hear! This feedback so far has been great which is really encouraging and nice to hear,” Mike says of the song.

“What I really like about ‘Lying For Love’ is that although it’s personal to me and my experiences, anyone can relate to it in their own unique way. This is only the beginning and I’m really looking forward for what’s to come!”

The accompanying video for “Lying For Love” was shot in Mike‘s hometown of Manchester.

“It was great to shoot my first video in Manchester. Having family from there and growing up there it’s played a big part in my life. The weather was very…’Mancunian’ (AKA wet and cold) when we shot it, but I’d like to think the grey stormy clouds only add to the atmosphere!”

Mike has been working on new music with the production teams behind Kaiser Chiefs, Little Mix and The Saturdays.

Clairity & Gettic Debut New Song 'Sleepwalking' (Exclusive Premiere)

Kesha‘s mother, Pebe Sebert, and prolific pop songwriter Kara DioGuardi both count Clairity as a protege. And after hearing her new song “Sleepwalking” with emerging Danish act Gettic, premiering exclusively on today (September 1), you’ll understand why.

The 19-year-old singer-songwriter’s latest track, written in Copenhagen as an ode to the grieving process that comes after a break-up, serves as a fittingly chilly, finger-snapping soundtrack for finally letting go of that summer fling.

“‘Sleepwalking’ was written about the grieving process one experiences after the end of a relationship, and how difficult it is to accept it as a reality. It’s about the struggle to cope with loss, and realizing that the best way to heal is to ‘wake up’ and begin to move on,” says Clairity.

Most recently, Clairity co-wrote “Godzilla” on Kesha‘s new album Rainbow, which recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.
