Hurts miracleHurts have brought out their new single, Miracle that you can listen to below. The single will be released to buy on the 10th March and will be the first single from their second album Exile, released on 11th March 2013 through Major Label.

We're not sure about you guys but we think that this new single Miracle smacks of Coldplay and Rihanna's, Princess of China but maybe it's just our ears.

This doesn't leave us with quite the same excitement as we had for the new album before we had heard anything at all but we'll still continue to listen as singles are released.

Miracle received its first worldwide radio play and no doubt a lot more feedback on Huw Stephens show on Radio 1 breakfast this morning (Friday 4th January 2013).

The band recently unveiled a teaser video for ‘Exile’, which gave some suggestion of the band’s new album, and can be seen here. The video features an excerpt of a new track called ‘The Road’, taken from the new album.

Hurts also recently announced a 12-date UK and European headline tour in March and April 2013 alongside London and Berlin headline shows in February 2013. London, Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Hamburg, Zurich, Amsterdam and Manchester dates are already all sold out. Full tour dates are below :

rihanna and jay-z for paralympic closing ceremony

Rumour has it that Jay-Z and Rihanna could all be playing the Paralympic Closing Ceremony this Sunday (9th September).

The last of the 2012 Games is set to come to a close this weekend with a massive celebration being planned for the final evening. The Closing Ceremony will include a lengthy set from Coldplay and it's widely believed that both Jay-Z and Rihanna will be joining the band on stage for duets.

Despite the fact the Paralympic Opening Ceremony failed to make the same impression as the starting event for the Olympic Games organisers are still putting all their efforts into making this a night to remember.

Entitled the 'Festival Of Flame' the event will be based around the five elements, earth, wind, fire, ice and water.

You'll be able to see if the stars make it onto the stage on Channel 4 between 7 - 11.30pm this Sunday.

You might have thought you would go through your entire life and never be able to see what Chris Martin and Rihanna would look like if they got their Martial Art on and had a fight.

Well fret no longer dear ones because today is the day you get to see it with their new video for Princess of China.

It's all pretty dramatic and what not set out as a film trailer and featuring lots of cool fighter moves and Lakshmi styled dancers (many arms).

As Rihanna continues to get flack on and offline about her decisions surrounding and conduct of a certain 'man that hits women in the face' situation it is strange the Coldplay, a pretty wholesome lot have decided to get her on a track in our opinion.

Maybe what with Ri-Ri and all the sword fighting they are going for a little more edge.

You can find this track, Princess of China, on Coldplay's 2011 album, Mylo Xyloto.

As you probably know Rihanna jumped in the studio with Coldplay to record a track called Princess of China for their last album Mylo Xylo and now they've released a video for the track.

The video for Princess of China has been recorded especially for the bands up coming world tour and shows Rihanna donning massively long nails and in a long black dress which is slit up to her thigh.

The video has been made so that while Rihanna wont appear in person on the tour Coldplay can still perform the track with her vocals and something interesting for the audience to watch.

Rumour has it the track will also be Coldplay's next single so if you like what you hear it should be released sooner rather than later. If you're a fan of the band you can catch them live at London's Emirates Stadium on 1st, 2nd and 4th June. Get tickets here.
