It’s about time, one of our favorite British singer and songwriter Diana Vickers is finally back with unexpected new track called “Chains“. (Nick Jonas and his impact)

This song written by herself was premiered exclusively on Digital Spy on August 27th, and it serves to promote Vickers’ upcoming film Awaiting, which will premiere at this year’s Frightfest on August 31st.

The X Factor finalist and “Once” hitmaker is back at least with a perfect and her classic scuzzier electronic sound which we fell in love on her debut album “Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree” (2010).
