The Toronto-based Choir! Choir! Choir! sent a video to Rick Astley to invite to come sing with them when he was in town on Tour.

Years & Years the Brit synthpop group, with gay frontman Olly Alexander, are back with new song If You’re Over Me, and it’s all about gay heartbreak. The song talks about being strung along by someone but then reclaiming your time. The lyrics read: ‘One minute you say we’re a team, then you’re telling me you can’t breathe. Well, you should set me free, baby, if you’re over me.
‘This heart just wants to break,’ Olly sings.
