Nothing in common

This is more of a Twitter-riffic post than something with enough substance to merit space on the blog, but Ben Adams, following up his crazy/brilliant video about a1's dance routines, has posted a video of a1 working on new songs that includes clips of some of the songs. They're working with David Eriksen, a Norwegian songwriter who I tend to associate with a kind of pure pop sound (several of the songs on the Saturdays' last album were by him, including "Lies" and "Set Me Off"), on that first song, which sounds more uptempo electronic than I was expecting. There's also more Zac Efron and Robert Pattinson than I might have expected.



Let's be honest: I'd probably buy that first song, the one I'm guessing is called "No Regrets," and "Nothing In Common" right now if I could.

I would have enjoyed that more if he wasn't so damn cheesy. The recording process is fascinating to me, though.

Sorry to go off at a bit of a tangent, but have you seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiBwTRLET7E. Linda is back! And the best way I can describe this duet is 'Katy Perry schlager' ;-)

Oh I'm all about Ben and A1 coming back. BTW Same Difference have been writing with Mark Read, i think This Is The Night (clip on their bebo page) is one of those compositions...

He's mugging like crazy, isn't he? I could easily watch a documentary about that process, though.

"Katy Perry schlager" is a BRILLIANT description! I may have to go edit that into my post about it.

Paul, what, they have more songs on Bebo?! Listening...wow, that's disco, isn't it? Does it actually sample "I Feel Love" or anything
