What is going on in Diana Vickers new single?

It's a good job Diana Vickers last single bombed harder than the Luftwaffe, because it sent her scuttling back to the studio to re-imagine what a hit Diana Vickers single should sound like.

Under normal circumstances, this would result in either a restrained cover version of a well-respected 1980s classic or a generic three-minute pop song with a guest rap by Flo Rida.

Luckily for us, someone spiked Diana's orangeade with LSD and she came up with this checklist instead.

The result is a fantastically off-kilter pop song with more yelps and vocal tics than Pete off of Big Brother. It's either terrible or brilliant or stupid or genius or career suicide or the bravest pop song of the year. I literally don't know.

Diana Vickers - My Wicked Heart

Diana's on X Factor this weekend, and the single comes out on Monday 18th October.
