Respect Your Dreams: #10YearsOfJedward

It’s been a whole decade since Dublin twins John and Edward, known professionally as Jedward, first strode onto the stage in Season 6 of the UK reality tv show, X Factor.

Jedward are still going strong a decade down the track, and released their fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’, in June this year, after signing a 5 year recording contract with Universal Music Singapore.

Considering just how many people have auditioned for X Factor, it’s testament to John and Edward’s incredible talent, and sheer determination, that they’re not only still doing well ten years along, but are also still ranked in the top 5 most financially successful acts to come out of the show, which first started in 2004. Just think about how many acts have come and gone in that time…

They’re the living example of the lyrics from one of their songs, ‘Respect Your Dreams’:

Respect your dreams
Go live your life
Don’t write yourself off
Put up a fight.

Oh protect your heart
From those who hate
Respect your dreams
It’s not to late

Even better are these lines in album title track,  ‘Voice Of A Rebel’,

Yeah, the truth it lingers in our bones
Oh, we know our worth that’s why we’re fighting on
Yeah, they’ll never tell us who we’re gonna be
Oh, we’re marching on to our own beat

There’s absolutely no stopping Jedward, who will be performing this Saturday at the Sunshine Festival, in Upton-Upon-Severn. They’re also going to be singing next weekend at the Gibraltar Fair, the first time the duo will have visited the rocky British Overseas Territory.

Today Jedward commemorated their 10th anniversary with a beautiful acoustic cover by John of the title track from Taylor Swift’s upcoming album, ‘Lover’. Check it out here:

You can find Jedward online on their official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube. Stream and download their music on SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play. Stream and download ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ here.

#10YearsOfJedward: Jedward Confirm New Album Cover Artwork, Title And Summer Release

2019 marks #10YearsOfJedward: 10 years since the identical twins from Dublin, Ireland, first leapt into the public consciousness with their appearance on The X Factor. They commemorate it with the release of their long-awaited fourth album, the name of which, and artwork, has been revealed today.

The pair fought a hard-earned battle through to the finals, finishing in 6th place in 2009. They’ve since gone on to release 3 albums and 12 non-album singles, as well as making countless television appearances, including hosting several series of their own. They’ve had cameos in 4 films, and represented Ireland twice at the Eurovision Song Contest, with their 2011 8th place still the highest position for Ireland since 2000 – making it effectively their country’s best result this century.

 

Using their official Twitter account, @planetjedward, Jedward have today revealed the title and cover artwork of their long-awaited fourth album:

Jedward, real names John and Edward Grimes, will release ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ this summer. They will be appearing on ITVs ‘Loose Women’ today.

Recorded in Los Angeles over the past 18 months, it’s the first album of songs entirely written and produced by the duo themselves. John and Edward also have complete creative control over the release, artwork, styling, and videos. Since becoming independent artists in 2013 they have released 12 non-album singles, starting with ‘Free Spirit’ in 2014. Their most recent release was ‘Golden Years’, in November last year.

Jedward will be touring the U.K. next month with two dates in each of Manchester’s historic Factory, the Camden Assembly in London, and Glasgow’s Garage. Tickets are available here.

Two time Eurovision finalists Jedward will also be performing at The Sunshine Festival in August. Tickets and further information here.

Find out more about Jedward online from their official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
