MTV and Gift Music have teamed up to put on a series of exclusive live shows featuring the best established and emerging talent around.
Taking place across the country, each show will present our pick of the finest, freshest acts out there – some already big stars and some on the way up.
ONE NIGHT ONLY
One Night Only release their second album, the self titled ‘One Night Only’, on the 23rd August through Vertigo Records. The album is preceded by the release of the first single Say You Don’t Want It on the 16th August.
Their forthcoming album, recorded in Brussels and produced by Ed Buller (Suede/Pulp/White Lies) captures the headrushing excitement of how it feels to ride this rollercoaster. It’s an album of giddy, almost dizzying energy and excitement; bigger and more confident tunes than the boys making their debut could have possibly imagined, and a feeling of being catapulted into something tremendously exciting and perhaps a little troubling.
It’s the story of chasing the end of the rainbow, what happens along the way and when you get there. One Night Only justifiably call the results a “quantum leap” that will take them to a whole new audience.
The hurtling first single and album opener Say You Don’t Want It is an instantly memorable song which talks of living like stars with beautiful girls and fast cars but also the fake and materialistic side of what can also be an empty and lonely world behind pop stardom. It captures the highs and lows - how it feels to be pop’s most wanted and the darker flipside of pop success which the fans never get to see.
One Night Only released their debut album in January 2008, and it quickly went Gold, and spawned the huge hit single Just For Tonight. They amassed legions of rabid fans up and down the country from their constant touring – including a bunch of sold out headline tours, and major festival appearances at Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, T in the Park etc.
Since those heady days of breaking through, frontman George has become the face of Burberry (at the last campaign shoot, he met now good friend and video co-star Emma Watson) and is regularly glimpsed in fashion shoots and on 25ft billboards around the world.
It all seems a long way from One Night Only’s beginnings, fitting all their gear into a Renault Clio and a Vauxhall Corsa and playing to handfuls of people in clubs in Derby, York and Mansfield. But some things haven’t changed a bit.
Often seen in the same Helmsley local they went in before they enjoyed hits – which now has One Night Only posters on its walls – they also enjoy a closeness with their fanbase - nurtured over the internet - beyond that of many bands.
And they are still pop dreamers. The difference is that, with an album packed with potential singles,. One Night Only are now the band they always wanted to be.
