I really don't understand the liking for I don't wanna. I find it to be an incredibly dull, repetitive b-side about nothing much at all. Like In his imagination but worse.

I would say Happy people is definitely the best option for a fourth single. I expect it will coincide with Annually - there'll probably be a joint announcement very soon with a pre-order for Literally / CD single and the 12 inch.

As for a fifth? I'd be surprised. Although Electric and Super sort-of had five singles each, the singles from Hotspot have been much more 'traditional' singles with proper releases and formats being released simultaneously. If there were a fifth it may be just some kind of limited edition 12" remix or something. I could be wrong of course

To me, Happy People is much more repetitive than I Don't Wanna. Happy People is pretty much just that catchy riff repeated over and over with not much else except a bit of Neilrap whereas I Don't Wanna has a whole story along with the choruses. And In His Imagination is awesome.

I don't like Happy People and You're the one . Weakests tracks for the album for me.

I prefer Only the dark, I don't wanna or Will o the wisp

Unlikely, but would love an Andrew Dawson HappySad mix of Happy People.

Shouldn't this come out sometime in March, and therefore be announced already? If it comes out in April, it's all a bit too close to the My Beautiful Laundrette OST and the new Annually.

Seems far too late for a Hotspot single. Maybe something in conjunction with the often rumoured Di5co?

Maybe a single with New Order to promote the tour?

Happy People sounds very Electronic to me.... so maybe that could be a single to tour with.

We could theoretically see something which is both.

Remember how Integral was both the 4th single from Fundamental and the first single from Disco 4?

Retro. :)

Pipe dream I know, but an album together would be good. Something like Franz Ferdinand and Sparks’s FFS Album. Maybe when they’re spending quite a bit of time together on tour, something will happen.
