Yes, Chris is back on main vocal. It is a very strong b-side.

Is it a "German thing" to be so curt and secret when it comes to answering some questions? I believe that 3 or 4 people have already admitted they owned the new single and all we know is that "it's very good, indeed". And we needed an extra time to determine who is singing :D
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

I don‘t like stereotypes... I only ate Sauerkraut once over the last year. 😉

Neil and Chris (main vocal, vocoderized) are singing. Neil repeats „It‘s time ... to make up your mind“ several times... Chris‘ words are about decisions concerning love („do want to fight or do we want to love“) and (on the surface) the message seems to be „fight for love!“ ... To the end the song is getting more orchestral and hymn-like. The song is a bit too short (approx. 4:40), but still very cool.

Thanks for this, can’t wait for next Friday! I’ll be hearing it for the first time on vinyl, for the first time in forever!

Someone has uploaded a couple of snippets of the b-side.
Here's a Soundcloud mirror. Mind the quality..

Who could post such a pointless record? I mean the quality is terrible, so it is a purposeful provocation to flurry us... or someone is bored with his/her life. Both options - :down:

Sounds like an external recording off the vinyl... but enough for me to tell that I'm going to really enjoy it!

Ripping vinyl to mp3 is a lot more difficult than CD to mp3. That's why the music industry wants us to go back to vinyl.
