What number will this be? The 14th proper album?
Given that this will be their German album I'd really love to see a megatacky Modern Talking-like "the 14th album" thing under the title :lol:
I've still got all my Modern Talking CD's!!! So keeping to one word for PSB & for 14th album how about "vierzehn"

Album is now available for preorder on the official website.
I'll hold off preordering in case there's a special edition.
Interesting to see, anyway. And we have the release date of the 24th now confirmed. (Late January, boo!)

This is how the shop looks:

Hopefully that's not the final cover art!

Hmm, the catalog number of the new album is X20018CD/LP. Musik is X20016DL. That probably means Dreamland is X20017 and there will be no new release between Dreamland and the new album.

24. January 2020 is such an ingenious title. I just wish it had been 25. january 2020 as that is my 45th birthday! :dance:

Err I don’t get it ... why would 24 January 2020 be an ingenious title?

you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

It says 10 songs, 3 minutes so that’s a really heavy edit of Dreamland plus some seriously short songs to go with it!!

Really, why not just release Dreamland on iTunes and Apple Music as a proper single with its proper artwork, instead of a track and the shell of nine others from an album that’s not going to be out for another four months.

I don't understand the significance of "just ten!" songs. Actually, Behaviour and Release all have "just ten". Don't get me wrong, I'd love 14 songs or a double album, but a 10 song track list is nothing new from PSB's.

I guess you're right, I find it surprising though since they've had a stockpile of songs since writing Electric and they've been writing during the last couple of years touring. If this new album has 3 instrumental tracks then it's practically an EP.
I might be spoiled from the Further Listening albums.

I don't know if we'll have a more extended version of the song like an album version. Anyway, I think we'll probably have songs of more than 5 minutes long (even 6) with Stuart mixing on it (like in Electric) or more complex songs.

PSB have been creating songs for:

- Musik
- My beautiful laundrette
- Agenda EP
- Apart from B sides from future singles from the new album

They have not many left :lol:

The mistake was because I kept in mind one show I loved from the 80's: The Little Shop of Horrors.

How do you know "they have not many left..?" :wall:
You repeatedly state your opinions as fact when the truth of the matter is none of us know if "they have not many left". They could have hundreds of songs stockpiled for all we know. None of us here have any idea how many songs they have already recorded or working on for future releases.

Very similar settings and storylines, to be fair. 👍🏻
