Kiss of a Bullet - Diana Vickers
With less than two weeks till Diana’s live shows, we want to reveal the titles to a few brand new tracks that she will be performing.
However we want to turn this into a bit of a guessing game. We will post the first letter of each word from a new song title and we want you to guess what the title could be. So for example if the title was ‘Boy In Paris’, we would post B I P and then you would need to guess what the title is.
You need to tweet your guesses with #DVLiveDates. To make this even more exciting the first person to guess the correct title will be followed by Diana.
The letters for today’s song title are:
What could the title be…

Happy Wicked Wednesday everyone!
So for you those of you that DON’T know, on the 8th and 9th of Feb I am doing two shows, one in Manchester and one in London to preview my BRAND NEW album. This excites me a lot and if you don’t already have tickets (http://bit.ly/xlKCSH) I’d get purchasing, or just rock up and have a good night.
Now then, band rehearsals have started and it is all sounding as slick as Rick, but I was missing one particular person, Tommy.
Tommy is my old trumpet I used to toot for a few songs on tour, but unfortunately the tour life style took its toll on poor old Tommy and sadly he is not with us anymore.
SO this week I went on the prowl to see if I could find a new trumpet to take Tommy’s place, and I sure DID!
Boys and girls the beautiful, sexy, red trumpet is my new musical partner and you shall be seeing me and her on stage rocking our boots off in Feb. I don’t have a name for her yet so wanted to ask you guys for your thoughts? I thought it should begin with a “T” for “TRUMPET” of course.
Get back with your thoughts and please, please admire her beauty.
‘Boy in Paris’ is a track I worked on with the very talented David Gamson (who, in case you didn’t know, was in an awesome band from the 80s, Scritti Politti!) . What I love about it is that it reminds me of a kind of early Eurythmics sound with all the dark synyths but as a package is also a big pop song. I’ve worked with David Gamson on a lot of the album and I think this song gives a real flavour of where I’ve gone sonically with my new music.
The song has a big connection with me, as I wrote it on true events. Paris has been a big part of my year this year on a lot of levels and I can say that I have truly fallen head over heels for the place. In fact, I just came back from Paris last week shooting the album and single shots, and I can honestly say it was the best shoot I ever done on every level.
Really hope you all like what you hear! ;)
Love Diana xx
How are we all on this splendid Monday morning? I had a nice relaxing weekend after my busy bee week! I had such a great week though.
Monday, Tuesday I was in the studio rehearsing with my wonderful band making my new songs sound awesome. On Tuesday Blue Peter came down to the studio to do a spot of filming before I co presented the show on Thursday! It was lots of fun and they brought the Blue Peter doggy with them which excited us all A LOT.
Thursday was so much fun, I was so chuffed to be asked to be a part of the show and even though I was very nervous, as I have no real experience of presenting, I think I kept a cool head and did the best I could! We were rehearsing the show all day as there was lots to get through before we went LIVE at 5 45. People say there is nothing like the buzz of live television, I do agree but it did feel a bit overwhelming as I’d never done the job before! Aaah!
It went down a treat and a malteser though, all of the Blue Peter production team were so wonderful and helpful with me and the whole day was such a pleasure. I felt like I learnt a lot! The pressure of presenting a live show is a hard job, especially when they chop and change things when you’re LIVE! You just have to role with it and think on the spot! Hats off to Dermot every Saturday night and all the amazing presenters out there, it’s a real talent!
Anyway I hope some of you caught the show if not you can catch it this week on bbc iplayer all week! I’d Love to do a bit more presenting in the future along side my music and acting, a lot more to learn yet though! So yeah great week and the VERY shoot went spiffing yesterday, the clothes look fab and can’t wait for you to see them.
This week I have PARIS! Where I go to shoot my album and single covers, I really can not wait. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time.
I’ll be updating you through out the days letting you know how it’s going. Brrrrr am gonna be cold!
Hope you all have a fab week my loves big kisssss Diana xxx
