'Got Some'/'Just Breathe' is the double A sided second single from 'Backspacer'. On the one hand, 'Got Some' is the rock side of Pearl Jam at their best, punding drums and roaring guitars whilst the flipside, 'Just Breathe' is one of 'Backspacer's most tender moments, with Eddie Vedder alone with an acoustic guitar.

CD:   http://991.com/Buy/ProductInformation.aspx?StockNumber=490672

A magical collection of Christmas songs from the 22 year old singing phenomenon that is Hayley Westenra. 'Winter Magic' combines some of the best loved and most familiar seasonal carols such as 'Silent Night' and 'Coventry Carol' with popular Christmas songs 'Little Drummer Boy' and 'Sleigh Ride', as well as tracks Hayley has written herself ['Peace Shall Come', 'All With You' and 'Christmas Morning']. The variety of the song choices perfectly showcases the versatility of Hayley's angelic voice and her ability to not only perform in a beautiful, classical way ['Corpus Christi Carol'] but also in a considerably more 'pop' style ['Peace Shall Come'].

Hayley released her first album 'Pure' at the age of 16 and it was soon on the way to becoming the fastest-selling debut album from a classical artist, and reached the Top 10 of the pop charts in 11 countries. Her albums have sold more than four million copies worldwide to date. 'Pure' was certified by the official UK chart compilers as the best selling classical album of the 21st Century.

Coinciding with the release of 'Winter Magic' Hayley will embark on an eight date tour of some of England’s most beautiful Cathedrals and Abbeys, providing a perfect evening of seasonal entertainment in the lead up to Christmas. True to form, Hayley has once again produced an irresistible record which is guaranteed to make everyone's Christmas that little bit more magical.

CD:   http://991.com/Buy/ProductInformation.aspx?StockNumber=490674

The stunning new album from Britain's favourite talent, Faryl returns with Wonderland on sale 30 November. The schoolgirl who became the fastest selling debut classical artist of all time is back with her second album. Her new album will push the boundaries both in terms of the music and also Faryl's voice. Featuring a beautiful adaptation 'Somewhere Far Away' (music from 'Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence'), 'Wonderland' (music from 'Winter from the Four Seasons') and a very special duet 'O Holy Night'. Faryl says "I wanted to follow up my debut album as quickly as possible with another record, something richer and varied".

Dividing her time between schoolroom, studio and concert hall, Faryl successfully manages to juggle her schoolwork whilst establishing herself as an international star. She supported Katherine Jenkins on a national tour, playing to arenas and opened the Classical BRIT Awards show to thousands at the Royal Albert Hall and millions watching at home.


THE JONAS BROTHERS ‘Lines, Vines And Trying Times’ [Release Date 30/11/2009]

CD/DVD [+Merch]:   http://991.com/Buy/ProductInformation.aspx?StockNumber=490676

The Jonas Brothers' latest album 'Lines, Vines and Trying Times' is now available in a Limited Edition Fan Pack. This pack includes the 'Lines, Vines and Trying Times' CD album, along with a bonus DVD. This special edition features remixes, exclusive video footage, videos, questions & answers and much more.

The Fan Pack also contains unique branded items including 3 silicone wrist bands, a World Tour pass and a MP3 player/mobile phone 'sock', which are all exclusive to this release.

The album showcases an incredible musical journey by the Jonas Brothers, as well as their growth as songwriters and musicians. The first single from the album 'Paranoid', is a guitar driven, riff- laden hit that offers just a taste of the pop rock gems the album has to offer. 'World War III' is a metaphor for a confrontational relationship; written by Nick Jonas, he asserts, "This is a personal experience for me. 'World War III' deals with the challenge of a girl who keeps attacking you, provoking you, trying to fight you, but all the while she's the only one fighting." 'Fly With Me' which is also the end title credit for the upcoming 'Night At The Museum 2' film, was written by Jonas Brothers and their bass player Greg Garbowsky, and is sure to become a love song for the ages. On 'Poison Ivy', the Jonas Brothers added a horn section. In their summer music preview issue, Rolling Stone described the ultracatchy 'Poison Ivy' as a "Weezer-ish tune about a toxic girl that you can't resist." 'Hey Baby' is a classic 'she done him wrong' song written entirely by Jonas Brothers. "We wrote this song for the last record while on the road and felt the old school sound was more cohesive with our present style," explains Nick Jonas.

With all these themes, it's easy to see how Jonas Brothers came up with the title 'Lines, Vines and Trying Times'. Says Joe Jonas, "Lines are the 'proverbial' lines people will feed you, and vines are obstacles that get in your way." Adds Kevin Jonas, "Trying Times can be relationships, or anything personal to you. No one is alone in that; we all go through it."

'Lines, Vines and Trying Times' is the follow up to the band's hit albums 'A Little Bit Longer' and the self-titled 'Jonas Brothers'. Executive produced by Kevin Jonas, Sr., the album was A&R'd by Jon Lind and produced by John Fields. The multi-platinum Jonas Brothers received their first Grammy nomination this year, and have won a slew of awards from around the world, including an American Music Award, as well as multiple Kids' Choice and Teen Choice awards. Worldwide, Jonas Brothers have sold a combined 8.1 million albums, and have garnered a resounding total of 36 gold and platinum album certifications. Following the release of Lines, Vines and Trying Times Jonas Brothers are set to embark on their 'Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009' including a sold out Wembley gig on June 15th to launch the UK release of their latest album.
