Perpetually ADORABLE Olly Murs has done it again, folks. The charming UK singer/songwriter has dropped YET ANOTHER infectious pop single and I can’t stop listening to it! It’s been on repeat for the past hour or so…LORD help me. “Troublemaker” was produced by Steve Robson (Lily Allen, Take That, Busted, Blue) and written by Murs, Robson alongside Claude Kelly (Christina Aguilera, The Wanted, Jessie J) and Flo-Rida. While it might sound a bit like a cut off of the new Maroon 5 album, it’s not! It’s Olly “Heart Skips a Beat” Murs! “Troublemaker” is the lead single taken from Murs’ forthcoming third UK studio album, Right Place Right Time, and is due out November 18th via Epic Records.
No word yet, whether or not “Troublemaker” will also serve as Murs’ SECOND single here in America, but given that it’s featuring rent-a-rapper Flo-Rida, that wouldn’t surprise me one bit. If that does happen, “Troublemaker” would be the follow up to Olly’s debut U.S. single, “Heart Skips a Beat,” which peaked at #96 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, following the songs release this past May and promotion during his support slot on the U.S. One Directiontour.
The video for “Troublemaker” was shot in Los Angeles this past September and features Murs coming to the rescue of an nerdy-chic, ever so slightly absent minded girl. For it’s upcoming UK release, “Troublemaker” serves up some seriously sick dance remixes by Cutmore and Wideboys.
Right Place Right Time is due out in the UK November 26th via Epic Records and on April 9th in America via Columbia Records, featuring a couple of hits from Olly’s last album In Case You Didn’t Know. Murs collaborated with a myriad of talented producers and songwriters on the new album, including Wayne Hector, Future Cut, Jim Eliot, Chuck Harmony and others. Pre-order Right Place Right Time on iTunes US and on iTunes UK. Americans, make sure you download “Heart Skips a Beat” featuring Chiddy Bang (iTunes US) while UK peeps can pre-order “Troublemaker” (iTunes UK).
As a special BONUS surprise, check out this recent “Live” acoustic performance of “Troublemaker” from Central Park in NYC that went up on VEVO yesterday.
