Peter Andre: 'Defender'

By
Peter Andre 'Defender'
Released on Monday, Oct 25 2010

He may have all the credibility of an Apprentice candidate trying to flog some rather stodgy-looking bread rolls at £1.82 a pop, but, for a popstar in the commercial tundra of 2010, Peter Andre's actually doing pretty well. Last year's comeback platter Revelation debuted at number three on the UK albums chart and went on to shift a not-too-shabby 250,000 copies.

'Defender', the trailer for its efficiently-assembled follow-up Accelerate, is a melodramatic pop-R&B midtempo that works the corny old love-is-war metaphor to death. It's not the freshest production you'll hear all year, and the chorus is a way off deadly, but for a single from someone who owes his second shot at pop paydirt to a romance with a glamour model on a reality show where everyone gets upstaged by the dismembered dangly bits of a kangaroo, it's not half bad.
