Re: Dreamland on A List BBC Radio 2 and Record of the week

Dreamland has essentially helped to promote the initial dates for Dreamworld the tour. Yes, it's possible. But how will they support the album? Loads of interviews perhaps? Free download or a second release. Wasnt releasing a single way before an album a popular tactic years gone by? Tbh, there pro...

By the time the album is out this momentum will be long gone. The only advantage I can see must be on album preorders.

Still not sold on it. If I want to listen to cheesy and inoffensive disco I'll listen to Tavares.

So hard needs to be a contender. Long time since Performance and I don't count Cubism.
Did I hear that Chris has vetoed this one being revived as a live track?
I think it was Paninaro.

Neil doesn’t like them to be thought of as pop strategists though. Everything they do is one big happy accident.
That would explain how they choose singles... :mrgreen:

To everyone’s point (including my own) : the only way to make such a thing compelling in the streaming era is to re/imagine/work/mix the songs.
The first chapter of another SP trilogy, to accompany us through old age with vocal loops and platform boots.

Re: Strategy

Likely they see a lot of potential in the song and they just want to have a late-career hit. But maybe they should have kept it for the rumoured GH. Perhaps the Hyde Park thing got in the way and without it the album would have had a standard autumn release, with a different first single (and a diff...

Re: September single...???

The lyrics video is fantastic. It’s a slightly surreal feeling arriving into Dreamland, AKA Alexanderplatz, every morning with the song in the headphones and seeing all of the elements of the station that you previously took for granted in a new light. I’ll say this though: they took the best part ...

Re: September single...???

At the moment it looks like the album won't bring anything radically new to the table, though, so my money's on something slightly more consistent than Super but not quite at the Electric level. What a brave guess :mrgreen: Sorry, the whole sentence could have been summed up by a simple - I don't k...
