Can't wait for this now, one of the most anticipated B-sides in the last decade. Hopefully the remix is listenable, as well.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

Clip is unlistenable

Hope it’s someone’s idea of a joke

Nah its not a joke. Its probably someone who knows how diehard some of us are and did what they could to at least give us an idea what it sounds like. They probably used their phone quite frankly. I suspect they meant well

Out in NZ! What a fantastic B-side! Definitely about Brexit, just to spin some underwear in a twist

Just got my iTunes download. Love Decide especially the CYA remix :)

Available in Vietnam as well (illegally, because it will be oficially released for a three hours, but who cares).

Decide is very nice track. Wouldn't be out of the place on "Electric". It has the same parents (which is rather strange to write as the composers are always the same, but I bet you know what I mean...). It's quite bombastic and anthemic. Very good b-side, but I am happy they didn't put it on the album. It's not that category this time (according to my impressions after reading the review). Of course nowadays it doesn't matter if something is available on the album or they make it available as a bonus. Track is the track. However, It can be a hint that they really want to release another Dark Techno/progressive house/call it whatever you want album in the not too distant future.
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?

The opening strings (or whatever they are) remind me a lot of Into Thin Air, whereas the percussive breaks are very reminiscent of Go West. Can't get enough of this at the moment, like it even more than An Open Mind.

Presumably the amazon autorip will be available at midnight. I'll listen tomorrow by which time it'll be too late to decide ;)
