I opened an envelope the other day and Emeli Sandé turned up. OK, an old joke, but they keep coming. Only last week, some wag tweeted "Which song is Emili Sandé singing at Thatcher's funeral?" For most of last year, it seemed that Sandé – who at the start of it was just another name on those Brightest Hopes/Sound of lists – was inescapable. You couldn't switch on, say, the Olympics opening ceremony, the Olympics closing ceremony, The X Factor, The Voice or even BBC Sports Relief without seeing her bleached quiff, or hearing her signature tune "Next to Me".

On Radio 1 this week, Yeah Yeah Yeahs unveiled “Sacrilege”, the first song from their April-released fourth album, Mosquito – their first LP in some four years. Whereas on their last effort, 2009's well-received It's Blitz!, the New York trio tuned their guitars, drums, synths and vocals to a more dance-oriented sound, on “Sacrilege” at least, they've moved their focus again. Here, on a song produced by Nick Launay and regular collaborator Dave Sitek, a big rock sound prevails with the high-pitched vocals of Karen O (pictured) augmented by a large chanting gospel choir.
