Straight to number 1 in the iTunes Ukrainian albums chart. By releasing the new album Бісайди (Bisaydi) O. Torvald made their comeback after Eurovision.
Last week the band reveals the magazin Viva! that they passed, perhaps, the most difficult test in their career - participation in the Eurovision Song Contest-2017, after which they heard a lot of critics.
After the defeat at the Eurovision Song Contest-2017 and the press's attention, O.Torvald took a sharp step back. The group moved to a new base for rehearsals, changed the situation and what it would not cost - completely disconnected themselves from communication with the outside world: "In this crazy spring, we dreamed of one thing: to return to the studio and work on new music". This album is a collection of singles since it includes five absolutely new songs and three bonus tracks.
In November the band will present songs from the mini-album Beisaidi at concerts in the framework of their Ukrainian tour, and on December 2 at a big solo concert in Stereo Plaza.

The Secret Daughter Season Two: Songs from the Original 7 Series is the second individual soundtrack album by Australian recording artist Jessica Mauboy, featuring music used in the second season of the television series of the same name, which stars Mauboy. The album was released on 6 October 2017 through Sony Music Australia and entered the Australian albums chart straight to number 2!
Even Jessica only did the interval act she was the first representative from Australia. One year after, Guy Sebastian took the Australian flag to Eurovision getting the 5th place, Dami Im in 2016 was the runner up and Isaiah placed 9th this year!
Other artists from Australia already took part in Eurovision representing other countries. Olivia Newton John or Gina G are the major examples.
Mauboy rose to fame in 2006 on the fourth season of Australian Idol; she became the runner-up and subsequently signed a recording contract with Sony Music Australia.
Mauboy was chosen by SBS to perform at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, in recognition of Australia's love affair with the annual event. She performed the single "Sea of Flags" during the second semi-final in Denmark, making her the first solo artist from outside Europe to perform on the contest as a guest. SBS screened the documentary, Jessica Mauboy's Road to Eurovision on 10 May 2014 before their coverage of the second semi-final.

With the strength and passion that Pastora Soler says "I love you" she comebacks with a new album - La calma.
The new single "La tormenta" is the preview of her new album. Pastora sings to the search of reconciliation, the reunion with a love that sometimes is not clear if it is a person, life or the music itself, the one that she left by its own decision on December 1, 2014.
It does so by saying that "we can still reinvent ourselves without realizing it", and asks to be embraced, "so strong that it hurts, so much that it rains". "La tormenta", an advance of the most anticipated return of the spanish female singer is composed by Tony Sánchez Olshonn, creator of what is already one of the fundamental themes of his career, "Quedate Conmigo".
What is clear is that "La tormenta" will be indispensable for its audience in the concerts of their new tour, which will start in style on November 19, no less than at the Teatro Real in Madrid. "Embrace me as if it were the one I always lost," says Pastora. Whoever sings it, only she knows. Although what comes after "The Storm" we always know what it is ...
