It's another awesome single package! And I'm glad the CD is still in a gatefold. But the blue disc would be much better. It's too white and minimal this way. Actually I can't understand why they broke the photo cover series of this era.

New Boy is a clear disappointment for me, perhaps just because it had its own myth of being a sister/brother of Rent, written in 1984 etc. I maintain my initial opinion - flat, amateurish and cheap production, so representative for the bunch of their post-2000 b-sides. Every time I hear another example of that sound I am more restless as many nice songs itself has been stripped from their potential glory. Cannot understand this trend as even so called bedroom pop artist who create music on their own laptop with some basic software are able to sound richer and deeper.
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 really have an issue with the production. It's sparse, yes, but it reminds me of their first album stuff. Not everything has to sound lush and fully produced.

New boy reminds me of In the club or in the queue. Lovely sound.

Well Amazon have just indefinitely postponed my order so I now have no option than to order via the official store. I’ve ended up paying more and am expecting it to arrive in less than perfect condition as per everything from the official store.

If you don't wanna use the official shop then Super Deluxe Edition are selling the 12" & CD - supposed to be shipping them early in the hope that they arrive on release date.

Or you could try an independent online record shop such as Norman Records (not used them) https://www.normanrecords.com/cloudsear ... %27t+wanna

I don't know if these are different snippets than the ones on the Japanese site, but here are 30 second snippets:

Thanks for the links. They sound different from the ones on the Japanese site. The remixes sound amazing. Can't wait to hear them.

I haven’t pirated music in years. Not since Apple Music and YouTube Red. I have no idea where to begin.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

SDE sold out the CD very quickly, so I had to order it from the OS.

I've used them a bit in the past in the early 2000s. They were good then, and I assume they still are.

As for the remixes, I hear there's three dirrty ones doing the rounds.

Retro. :)

It's been available for 10 days already, only the most technologically deficient haven't heard it by now.
