The highly anticipated single from Martha Wainwright's second album 'I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too' is set to stir up quite the ruckus. There are no faults with Martha, she delicately displays honesty with a tinge of vulnerability.

The talented Canadian-American folk-rock singer-songwriter possesses an element of humanity and this is epitomised in 'You Cheated On Me'. In terms of style and delivery, Martha runs up a reminiscent road/ hill of a Kate Bush ditty. The track has the ability to contort into an anthem for all of those many people who have been hurt, lied to or even been cheated on. Maybe that person who ran away with your best mate is now festooned in happiness, tightly hugging onto them awkwardly, being a nuisance to the general public. Without a hint of guilt whatsoever, some peopleā€¦

I digress. The blissful track is a winner.
