Love a good period drama? You won’t want to miss Britannia. Set in 43AD, this anarchic 10-part series follows the Roman army as they return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia – a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld. It could just fill that GOT-sized gap.
Written by the multi-award winning Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem, Spectre) and starring David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) and Kelly Reilly (True Detective), Britannia is packed with action and emotion. It’s been described by Sky’s head of drama, Anne Mensah, as “one of the most ambitious dramas we’ve ever made,” and you can catch all 10 episodes on NOW TV from 18 January.
Sky Sports Mobile TV
What better way to kick-off 2018 than with some stellar sporting action on Sky Sports Mobile TV? It doesn’t get much better than the upcoming clash between Arsenal and Chelsea, live at the Emirates from 7.45pm 3 January, and the recently rescheduled face-off between London rivals Spurs and West Ham at 8pm, Thursday 4 Jan. But the action doesn’t stop there.
Liverpool is scheduled to play top of the table Man City on Sunday 14 Jan as Guardiola’s side aim to continue their winning streak. In fact, it’ll be a busy month for Premier League teams across the board with the January transfer window now open. Who will stay, who will go and who will come out on top? Catch it all on Sky’s dedicated Premier League channel with your Sky Sports Pack 1.
January’s also a great month for golf, with the Tournament of Champions starting Thursday 4, followed by the BMW SA Open from Thursday 11 and EurAsia Cup from Friday 12. Upgrade to Pack 2 to enjoy Sky Sports Golf, Cricket, Football and F1 as well, and never miss another sporting moment!
This month we’re loving the sound of Cuban-born singer/songwriter Camila Cabello and her latest single, Never Be the Same, from upcoming debut album Camila.
Formerly of Fifth Harmony fame, Camila is now forging a sound of her own and it’s certainly proving popular with fans. Last year, lead single, Havana, became the longest-running number one single by a female artist in the UK since Adele’s Someone Like You. You can catch the full album on Spotify from Friday 12 Jan.
Another artist who certainly isn’t ‘walking away’ from the charts just yet is Craig David. Forthcoming album, The Time is Now, is scheduled for release on 26 Jan and it features collaborations with some pretty big names. Those names include Bastille, JP Cooper, and Kaytranada, who also teamed up with old Craig for Got It Good on his 2016 album Following My Intuition.
According to a statement from the man himself: “This album is me going back to those days of simple story telling and waving the flag for UK R&B.” Listen to new single I Know You with Bastille below.
Also out this month is new album MANIA from Fall Out Boy, and according to a recent Entertainment Weekly interview, the band is shrugging off the confines of genre. Originally due for release in September 2017, frontman Pete Wentz says the delay came from the realisation that many of the songs were “just not good enough” – in three more months, they managed to nail it.
“The great thing about the way people listen to music now is there’s such disregard to genre. I think this record is expansive in that way,” Wentz says.
You can catch the full, genre-bending album on Spotify from 19 Jan. For now, check out new single Hold Me Tight Or Don’t on Spotify below.
Others to look out for this month include sophomore studio album, VoiceNotes, from American singer-songwriter and producer Charlie Puth and I Miss You from Clean Bandit – both out 19 Jan.
