One Direction strum up folky heartache on new single ‘Story of My Life’

Forget about electric guitars — the lads of One Direction have a new favorite instrument: the kickdrum.one-direction-story-of-my-life.jpg

The percussive pounder has made a comeback thanks to Mumford & Sons, and now acts like Gavin Degraw, Lady Antebellum, and, yep, One Direction, are releasing folk-infused singles to radio.

The boy band’s new track “Story of My Life,” which will appear on the upcoming Midnight Memories (their third disc in less than three years), slows things way down from “What Makes You Beautiful” or “Best Song Ever,”though it still proves propulsive. Per usual, the boys take turns singing on the verses, though the chorus seems to feature Harry Styles’ rasp much louder than any of his other bandmates.

Lyrically, the song invites some shades of grey into One Direction’s normally sunny universe as they sing about a torrid romance. “The story of my life: I give her hope,” they wail, but then flip the switch and say, “I spend her love until she’s broke inside.” The writing isn’t all so tight — for instance: “Written on these walls are the colors that I can’t change/Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage” — but it’s not unlike Phillip Phillips’ smash “Home” in tone or sentiment.

The die-hard Directioners will eat this up, but casual fans who like their boy bands peppy and poppy (i.e. more “Larger Than Life” than “Shape of My Heart”) may prove tougher to convince.

On Saturday, the StarTimes Uganda Premier League official broadcaster, Sanyuka TV, officially unveiled their new partners, MTN, on a one-year-subsequently-renewable contract, in an event held at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

The event started off with a press conference addressed by all stakeholders; Sanyuka TV General Manager, Joseph Kigozi, MTN Chief Marketing Officer Somdev Sen, FUFA Spokesman Ahmed Hussein and UPL CEO Bernard Bainamaani all addressed the press.

“We are proud to share that MTN are back in Ugandan football after having done so well when they handled the Uganda Cranes years ago,” Sanyuka’s Kigozi said. “This partnership will add a lot of value to the clubs, with even bigger sponsorships expected as corporate companies will now further be assured of visibility.”

MTN’s Somdev pointed out that the company are excited about the partnership, stating, “We have been waiting for a major opportunity to support sport like this one to jump onto, so we are happy. We are looking forward to seeing Ugandans excited about matchdays, more involved in conversations SUPL and much more.”

This one is also a partnership that feeds into something MTN already had going; discounted bundles to watch StarTimes Uganda Premier League games off the StarTimesON App via their *165*81# prompt.

The launch was concluded by an exhibition game between Sanyuka TV and MTN, a game that saw Next Media Services CEO, Kin Kariisa, and MTN Chief Marketing Officer, Somdev Sen, captained their respective sides to a 0-0 draw.

Saturday night at Club Tavern was a refreshing dose of fun, excitement and energy for Masaka’s party animals as the Johnnie Walker Highball Tour came to their town.

The party started with Selector Jay alongside Miss Deedan on stage, setting the tone for the evening with an energetic display as they hyped up the crowd.

Not long after, the star of the night, Jose Chameleone took to the stage sending the crowd wild with excitement. He brought the house down with songs like “Mateka”, “Mama Mia,” “Hana” before winding down his enthralling performance with his hit song “Wale Wale” that had revelers up on their feet wishing the night would not end.

There was also a performance from Chosen Becky who entertained the crowd with her songs like “Byabangi”, “Kyosaba,” “Bankuza”—a particular favourite with the crowd.

The night was capped with Masaka’s very own Basakala Boys who had the crowds going wild with laughter at their comical acts not forgetting DJ Batta, DJ Katts and MC Might Dragon who took it a notch higher with music mixing that kept the revellers dancing until the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Here are some photos from the event.
