New music from Diana Vickers...

The gods of pop haven't exactly been kind to Diana Vickers. She's made a handful of individual, quirky pop songs but aside from Once (which a friend once described as the "perfect radio song") she's not exactly set the charts alight.

In the current climate of budget cuts, you'd expect an artist like Diana to be dropped like a hot scone but it seems someone has faith in her abilities. She's been allowed to make a second album - which she said earlier this year would be "sexy" and "adventurous", drawing inspiration from "The xx and The Doors, and Siouxsie and the Banshees and Bjork."

Diana released Music To Make The Boys Cry as the first taster of that record this morning and, well, it's none of those things. It's just a very catchy pop song, co-written with Simen Says from Norwegian pop group Donkeyboy (whose single Ambitions was covered by Joe McElderry not so long ago).

With a whimsical, dreamlike melody and a lyric about wishing wells it paints Diana as an ethereal Alice In Wonderland figure - not too distant from the little girl lost persona she assumed for her debut.

Will it sell? It's hard to say - but this is a pleasantly diverting 3:38 for a Friday morning.
