On Air Now
Rob Howard & Lauren Layfield 6am - 10am
Check out the stars Capital can't wait to see back on the charts, and find out what they're up to right now whether they're already back in the studio or just taking some time out.
The 'Call My Name' star's last album 'A Million Lights' launched back in 2012, and for the past year Cheryl's been steadily teasing that she's back in the recording studio. She's been writing with former Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts as well as a stream of songwriters...but has yet to announce any concrete details about her next record. Look for more news as The X Factor 2014 heats up...
The 'Feel The Love' boys exploded onto the scene last year with debut 'Home', and are now back in the recording studio cooking up some new tunes for later this year. They've recently teased potential team-ups with both Ellie Goulding and One Direction, so expect some BIG names on their next record.
The 'Troublemaker' singer had a hectic year in 2013 with an album and tour to keep him busy, but Olly says he won't release a new record now until 2015. Despite the long wait, Olly's dad has been tweeting this week to say he's heard some "funky" new stuff from Olly... which makes us VERY excited for what's next for Mr. Murs.
Its hard to believe Labrinth's first studio outing 'Electronic Earth' was two years ago, but the 'Earthquake' singer is now preparing to return with second album, rumoured to be called 'Timothy' after his birth name. After featuring on Tinie's recent hit 'Lover Not A Fighter', the time is right for Lab's return to the charts.
For the past year Adam Levine and his gang of merry men have been working away in the recording studio on album number five, the follow-up to 2012's global hit 'Overexposed'. Expect a back to basics approach for their next record, as band member James Valentine says it is more akin to their debut 'Songs About Jane'.
Lawson are hard at work on the follow-up to their 2012 debut 'Chapman Square', after scoring another huge hit late last year with 'Juliet'. Singer Andy Brown tweeted fans recently to say the group are all excited about plans for "new music, new album, new artwork, new tours and new adventures" to come over the next year. Bring it on boys. Picture: PA
The 'Carry You' four-piece launched their self-titled debut this year but are already back in the studio and giving us teasers about what's next. The boys have said some of the music has a more "country and folk" vibe, as well as teasing the songs being a mix of "Taylor Swift and Little Mix'. Exciting! Picture: PA
He burst back onto the charts this year with his Miley Cyrus team-up 'Feelin' Myself' and, while hasn't announced a new album JUST yet, he did recently promise to swing by Capital soon with some new music! Stay tuned... Picture: REX
He may be pretty preoccupied with The Voice US right now, but that doesn't mean Usher is slacking off in the music stakes! Rumour has hit his NEXT record, the follow-up to 2012's 'Looking 4 Myself', is expected later this year, though full details are still few and far between.
He stormed the US Super Bowl this year with a halftime show performance that won't be forgotten anytime soon, and he's still taking the 'Moonshine Jungle' tour across the globe. While touring is his main priority, it shouldn't be TOO long before Bruno gets back that studio.
He has a tune on the way with Ariana Grande and new album 'X' is due for its, much delayed, release in May this year. Look for Chris Brown to be back in a big way in late 2014.
The '22' singer has been riding an incredible wave of chart success since 2012's 'Red', and she's already revealed halfway through the writing process for her next record. Taylor's promised it won't sound anything like 'Red', as she doesn't like to repeat herself, so look for Ms. Swift to drop a surprise on all of her fans before the year is out.
After whetting fans appetites with Eminem on 'The Monster', the Navy are now clamouring for some new music from RiRi, and the Bajan star started work on her EIGHTH album back in January this year, with producers like David Guetta and Nicky Romero.
The 'Try' singer has just completed her mammoth 'Truth About Love' tour so it looks like Pink will be taking some well-earned rest for at least SOME of next year. While we haven't heard a peep about any new tunes from this lady, she has a multi-record deal so don't expect her to take TOO much time off.
Dizzee Rascal launched his album 'The Fifth' in September last year, which has spawned a string of hit singles like 'Love This Town' and 'Goin' Crazy'. When his next batch of new music will arrive... only Dizzee knows!
Conor Maynard has been steadily recording his second album for some time now, dropping teaser single 'R U Crazy' in late 2013 to commercial success. He's just finished touring the UK alongside Jason Derulo, so now Conor can get back in the studio and finish off the new album!
X Factor favourite Ella is set to be one of the freshest new name in music this year when she drops her single 'Ghost' later this month. After that, her debut album 'Chapter One' will launch in Autumn 2014.
