LadBaby – “Sausage Rolls for Everyone” featuring Ed Sheeran & Elton John

When the world didn’t seem strange enough already, here comes the most unlike collaboration – ever! Ladbaby teams up with not one but two of the biggest names in music, Elton John and Ed Sheeran for charity Christmas single “Sausage Rolls for Everyone”.

Raising money for Trussell Trust and their network of food banks in the UK; what better way to feel all Christmassy than an ode to the good old sausage roll?

All profits will be donated to The Trussell Trust, which is a very wonderful and important charity, so make sure you stream it, buy it and play it on repeat” – Ed Sheeran

Next year sees one of the world’s greatest ever musicians bid a happy goodbye to all his fans; Elton John celebrates his unmatched lifelong contribution to rock and pop with Farewell Yellow Brick Road – The Final Tour. See full dates HERE and book tickets with Gigantic,

Plus, everyone’s favourite boy-next-door songwriter Ed Sheeran when he kicks off his colossal + - = ÷ x tour AKA the Mathematics tour which sees the superstar showcase his fifth studio album = in addition to classic hits and surprise songs! Get your Ed Sheeran tickets HERE.



Johnny MarrFever Dreams, Pt. 2

The second EP in a four-part project; guitar hero Johnny Marr is embarking on an ambitious creative endeavour which sees him present a intimate portrait of himself and explore exciting new musical avenues.

This edition includes the single “Tenement Time” which the former member of The Smiths explains is about “The experience of growing up in the inner city as a little kid, running around being quite wild. This idea of “forever, forever is mine” – it’s about running around Ardwick, bunking into warehouses and getting chased.

That was the first time I was self-consciously into culture: around people who wore certain clothes, and it was part of being a little Manchester boy, really. I have a real romanticism about that period of my life.

Marr joins new wave icons Blondie for their Against The Odds tour, which kicks off in April and sees both former songwriter from The Smiths plus Debby Harry and co. play hits from right across their illustrious careers – tickets on sale with Gigantic!
