‘CELEBRATION’ is the first single to be taken from Madonna’s forthcoming Greatest Hits album also titled ‘CELEBRATION’ due for release September 25th.

It’s been a busy year for County Derry based artist Joe Echo. A Liam Shachar remix of On All My Sundays currently features on Paul Oakenfold’s new remix album ‘Perfecto Vegas’ which hit the Number 1 spot on the US iTunes Dance Chart and his current single, the dance driven, The Heart That Knows Desire is beginning to pick up airplay from radio stations around the country as well as earning some great reviews. All this on the back of performances to packed tents at Oxegen and Glasgowbury festivals, Joe Echo is one name that both the media and his peers are keeping an eye on.

“A perfect nugget of experimental pop fueled by one of the most interesting new voices I’ve heard all year.- HOTPRESS

“Joe Echo’s voice, let off the leash, is extraordinary, soaring and dipping on oodles of emotion. He has proven he is the possessor of a fearsome, restless musical imagination.” - FRANCIS JONES – BBC

“The spectral vocals bind and weave his sounds and words together with ethereal rhythm and the sheer emotion of his voice will have you crying in your beer.” - ACROSS THE LINE, BBC Northern Ireland
