One Direction is far from over! Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam may be going on a much-deserved break but Pinoy fans are sure to keep the hype alive for the greatest band this generation has ever known.

Local Directioners will be gathering for the ultimate event yet, and it is not just an album launch for the deluxe edition of the band's latest record Made In The A.M. It is also in celebration of more than 5 years of non-stop One Direction music, a thank-you to the boys for inspiring their fans. It is, as usual, expected to be fun and outrageous, but this time it will also sit on nostalgia, with activities allowing Directioners to look back on the past years of their idols, including those eras when Zayn Malik was still a part of it all. It is going to have, as per Harry's words to our launch last year, love all round.

MUSIC LYF: Marlisa Live In Manila

Maja's "BELIEVE" First OPM Record To Be Mastered For iTunes

Maja Salvador will be leaving a huge footprint on the music scene with her debut album “Believe”. And it is not loosely said so. As apart from the album being certified Gold last June (only 2 months after the official release) and obtaining an official Vevo channel on YouTube with views summing up to almost 6 million, the album takes the cake off the plate of its contemporaries once again by becoming the first OPM album to be mastered for iTunes.

A “mastered for iTunes” song is a digitally downloadable track on iTunes, taking legs of optimization to make every bit of it in the highest definition possible and as close to how artists and their production team intend every song to be heard as possible, while keeping the music file size down for portability and for more efficient digital distribution.

REEL DEAL: Ella Henderson Debuts With "Ghost"

A British singer-songwriter, Ella Henderson arrived with the release of her debut single, “Ghost” on June 8th through Syco Music.

Ella was a finalist on the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012 and finished in sixth place and subsequently signed to Syco Music. The single went straight to No. 1 in the UK.

Ghost is a song Ella co-wrote with Ryan Tedder, who was recently named Billboard’s songwriter of the year for his work with the likes of Beyoncé and Adele.  The collaboration came about after Ryan heard Ella’s voice on a Drake cover and said “It took listening to her sing half of a cover song to convince me she has an insanely bright future.” The pair started work on Ghost in a writing session in London and finished it when Ella flew to his hometown of Denver in January. “I was in the vocal booth in Ryan’s studio recording the vocals just as I turned 18, it was a surreal moment,” recalls Ella.

MUSIC LYF: Brand New Script Music Video "Superheroes" Out Now

THE SCRIPT has premiered the video for Superheroes, their brand new single, and the first to be released from their highly anticipated fourth album NO SOUND WITHOUT SILENCE. Directed by Vaughan Arnell, the video was shot in Johannesburg, South Africa. The three-piece were ex-tremely thankful to all those they met whilst filming in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and have left with some everlasting memories.

The Script’s fourth album, No Sound Without Silence, is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and channeling the momentum of their last, rocket-powered campaign. The trio of songwriters had so many ideas while touring last year, they were busting out of the specially built mobile recording studio they’d taken with them on the tour bus. They finished touring #3 at the end of last year, took a scant couple of weeks off, then quickly re-entered their studios in London and Dublin to begin work on the highly anticipated No Sound Without Silence.

I came to them with my vision for the album and it has been a real labor of love, but something I am so proud of. ‘Chasing The Sun’ is just a peek into my new album. I've worked very hard and the album is a great representation of the experiences I've had in my life and where I want to go from here!”

MUSIC LYF: Original Soundtrack of the Musical Film "Walking On Sunshine" To be Released June 26

Sony Music is proud to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack of the musical Walking on Sunshine. The stars of the film, including a global superstar, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Leona Lewis, perform the hottest hits of the 80’s. The movie is a romantic musical, full of fun and packed with highly recognisable songs, the story of a threesome tangled in love at a holiday location in Italy.

This musical film includes the greatest pop hits of the 80s, making for the perfect soundtrack, with an irresistible line-up of songs that make it impossible to sit still while listening. Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”, a #1 single in the UK and US, sets up the theme of romantic hope. Madonna’s unforgettable hit “Holiday” is just right for singing along (“celebrate!”) in the cinema or at home. And if anyone is in doubt about the film’s fun factor, then Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” makes things as clear as they could be. There are some quieter, soulful tracks too – “Eternal Flame” by The Bangles is one, and a beautiful, soft rendering of the Roxettes’ “It Must Have Been Love” is another – but the dominant mood is punchy and upbeat. “Wild Boys” gets a raunchy performance, full of energy. “How Will I Know?”, a smash hit for Whitney Houston, is a funky, foot-tapping song of a love-struck girl, and with the powerful female vocals of “Venus”, you have to agree with the lyrics: “Yeah, baby, she’s got it!” This pyrotechnic parade of top tracks is rounded off by Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go”. All of these numbers are performed with real verve by the stars of the film cast.
