So Dreamland is going to be on the new album and I think it's one of the good ones. The classic big PSB production. It was planned to be a Years and Years song but they decided to save it for themselves. Looks likle it's going to be one of the main songs from the album. Maybe a future classic (on terms of a good song even for casual fans).

Great news. I saw Years & Years live last year and they were really good. I still wish they would go ahead and also do a duet with Tracey Thorn.

We don't know this is for the Dreamland track from a couple of years ago. I hope it's not, because apparently it's political.
Notice again this is another gay artist they're collaborating with. Nothing wrong with that but there's definitely a pattern.
We also don't know if this is for the new album, or if strictly it's a duet. Lots of assumptions here!
Anyway it's a nice photo and I'm looking forward to hearing the record.

What do you think it is, a conspiracy? Don't see the relevance of your comment.

That's definitely a very off-key comment. I'd argue they've collaborated with more straight people, and this sounds straight out of 1993.

I remember two interviews, in one of them Neil talked about Dreamland, talking really good things about the songs. I can't remember really good the correct words he said about the song but he suggested it was the classic anthemic PSB song people love.

And yes at that time, it was planned to be included on one Years and Years album but Olly Alexander suggested on an interview later, the track was going to be on the new PSB album and we know they are on the studio right now recording the new album, so it looks obvious it's going to be a song from PSB featuring Olly Alexander (the rest of the band of Years and Years are not there).

I think PSB changed their minds because they have a good track on their hands.
