Diana Vickers, who is already one of the breakthrough artists of the year, is soon to release her second single, The Boy Who Murdered Love, through RCA Records on July 12th.
The Boy Who Murdered Love was, like most of the songs on Diana’s album, co-written by the Blackburn native, this time with Chris Braide, and is typical of Diana’s sophisticated and mature approach to pop. Explaining the song, Diana said “The boy who murdered love sounds uptempo but it’s got a dark meaning behind it. It's about when you've been madly in love with someone and your world has been so beautiful but then they break your heart and ruin the whole concept of love for you. The beautiful boy you once adored has now murdered love.”
Diana’s recording career has seen her get off to an absolutely incredible start. Both Diana’s album, Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, and her first single, Once, entered the UK charts at #1, and came hot on the heels of Diana receiving rave reviews for her starring role in the West End Musical, Little Voice.
Diana shows no signs of slowing down after her recent success and has several live shows planned, following on from her May UK tour. Amongst other shows, Diana will be playing at the iTunes festival on July 28th as well as supporting JLS on their outdoor UK shows in July. She will also be playing the following festivals, in what’s bound to be an unforgettable summer for Diana and her fans:
Saturday July 10 T in the Park Festival (King Tut’s Tent)
Sunday July 11 Oxegen Festival, Ireland (Green Room)
Saturday August 14 Summer Sundae Festival, Leicester
Saturday August 21 V Festival, Stafford
Sunday August 22 V Festival, Chelmsford
