Re: The New Album Info Thread

I hope it IS downbeat. I'm happy for the banging and lasers to be mothballed for a decade. I think i like the title. Although I think the German word - I forget - for exit would have been better. Burning the heather is a great title I don't wanna.. Really Neil?? But I love the cover and am hoping f...

Re: Burning the heather

Loving the warmer, richer sound compared to the shiny but ultimately thin and somehow cheap sounds of Electric and Super.

Pretty sure it’s just an album track, not the new single. I like it a lot, but definitely not strong enough to be a single.
But the “radio edit” aspect makes it a bit confusing. The album version is quite a lot longer.

And the album's called Hotspot.

Didn't see that coming.
It’s already making me think of the white goods brand Hotpoint.

Re: Burning the heather

Interesting choice for the second “single”. I’m assuming that’s the status as this is a “radio edit”? Couldn’t be a bigger contrast from Dreamland. What have they said, that Dreamland is this album’s So Hard? That makes sense on the basis of hearing this new song. I like it, autumnal and melancholy!

Re: News tomorrow! (Nov 14th)

What’s making me think it might not be related to the new album details is that they’ve chosen 6 Music. I would have though Radio 2 would be the place for that and the first play of a new track. I’m just wondering if this could be some big live event for 2020. But we’ll soon know!

Re: News tomorrow! (Nov 14th)

A lot of people will be disappointed if it’s not about the new album... I’m hoping for album name, confirmation of the 24 January release date and maybe, just maybe, a new song from the album.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Give Stupidity a Chance - can take it or leave it. However, I think the other three tracks are pretty strong. Certainly better than three or four tracks on Super and I prefer the production on these - feels warmer, more going on. Other have commented about how short the four songs are. I agree, they...

Re: On Social Media

What else has this producer done? These sound like PSB/Gleadall production tracks. Not sure what his sound is. I think we are getting the b-sides for the next album in the form of an EP because singles are dead. I like OSM and well enough produced but it's still a b-side type track. Sadly I think y...

Oh my god this is a terrible attempt at a political record. :cry:
Chukka Umunna will like it.

I’m looking forward to hearing the other three songs.

Re: "Winner" - the love and hate battle of this forum

The album version is really good. A positive, uplifting song. The happy/sad mix is stunning. My only issue was the timing of the release to coincide with the Olympics. I think Status Quo also released a song with a similar name around the same time. The whole thing looked desperaete. Winter is a mil...
