Clearly b-side material but I quite like it.

About Disco 5, bring it on! Specially if it ressembles Disco 3, one of my favourite releases from the Boys. (Had the standard version of Sexy Northener been there instead of the remix, it'd had been a pretty solid album.)

Those little synth organ stabs remind me of Let Me Love You For Tonight by Kariya.
Good song.

Terrible.
It is a bit shit isn't it?
It seems not, according to the comments here. I'm kinda original on liking PSB stuff. I adore Before...
I'm trying to be a little bit deeper and explain my "terrible":

- melody: boring and monotonous
- lyrics: not so emotional to me
- production (arrangement): sounds like a very cheap demo.
- overall felling: two listen and stop. No more. I almost fell asleep while driving.
Expressing passion, explaining pain
This is my kind of music

such sad lyrics...

i love this song!!
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

If it’s the same interview I read I think it might have just been wishful thinking / mischief making on behalf of the author.
Woof.

Yep there's been no official confirmation of Disco 5 or any evidence for it.

There was an audio interview in another place which hasn't made it here. :) I won't be reposting, but yeah, Neil himself only hinted at it, wouldn't call it a confirmation.

There is bound to be a Greatest Hits to accompany the tour.

So the chance of muddying the water with a Disco 5 alongside Hotspot strikes me as VERY unlikely.

Pretty sure they've confirmed there won't be a greatest hits album

Definitely confirmed no Greatest Hits: “it’s all on Spotify”
Woof.

they must have TONS of tracks like this laying around. good, not great, tunes they probably banged out in 3 hours. me, I love it.
although I will say when Neil first started singing it sounded like he just had dental surgery and the novocaine still hadnt worn off

Maybe Disco 5 is a compilation of classic PSB songs remixed by Stuart Price. Like studio versions of the new remixes for the tours of this era. That would work as a greatest hits in disguise.

That would be a great idea for a greatest hits, but I have a sense they dont want to go backwards and mine the past glory in the re recording sense.
