Anyone know what's happened to the very talented Victoria Hesketh.

She posted a blog update the other day saying her 2nd album is now mixed & mastered and she's taking a few weeks off before starting the campaign. We should hear something in February as it's pointed towards a March/April release

Oh my, what even happened to Little Boots? She was big with Remedy and then just disappeared? Was she a one hit wonder? (Not suggesting she is, just simply a question )

Finally! I wonder if the three singles she released recently (Shake, Every Night I Say A Prayer and Headphones) will be on the album.

Little Boots produced a solid pop album.

But only 'Symmetry' was really any good.

I liked her and her debut was great and so underrated. But the year she came out, she really suffered in being in La Roux's shadow.

Yes, I also think she suffered from being compared to La Roux, Ellie Goulding, Florence, etc. at a time when a lot of strong female/female-fronted acts were coming out and becoming popular. Perhaps she'll have better luck with her comeback.

Another new song has appeared online: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=6mTp8N5ccTg

It's called Superstitious Hearts and it's brilliant

Love Little Boots and i'm not really a fan of pop/electronic music.

Favourites are Hearts Collide, Ghosts, Remedy and Hands. Four extremely different songs on the same album.

I hope she does come back with something worth while. She just seems to have had a major loss of confidence after that 1st beautiful electro pop album. Like others have said she just seems to have got intimidated by the competition out there retreated within herself and never came back.

I saw a video interview with her a few months back and she just looked so nervous, kept re-asserting their would be a follow up album but then would keep putting herself down. Something that struck me was when she started saying something along the lines of "its hard to compete today...some artists bring out 2 albums a year now..." I almost thought she was going to brake down in tears and add "I can't do that waaaahh!!!"

But you don't need to dear! One album at a time is good enough! I think she needs to stop looking at what others do and just concentrate on doing it for herself and make something that means something to herself. If it sells it sells, if it doesn't it doesn't but at least she would have made something she herself considers to be good. And you can't do much more than that.

And by the sound of things that track Superstitious Heart is the right way to go about it. Go on Victoria!

It should have been her year in 2009 but La Roux and Lady Gaga completely overshadowed her.

The sad thing is as well. Little Boots was the only of them them doing real electronica. La Roux and LG did pop and passed it off as electro when it never was. So Little Boots still led her field despite not getting the credit for it.
