With Clare it‘s so much better.
They should re-record with her.

The smart money must be on Olly for both Dreamland and then back on again for It’s a sin at the end of the set. Going off previous festival sets What have I wouldn’t be played.
Woof.

BBC Glastonbury item earlier showed a clip of the 'Purple Zone' video when promoting it - so perhaps a teaser/spoiler for a Marc Almond/Soft Cell gues spot?

They were just (unexpectedly) on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show on Radio 2. Neil just said that there’s a special guest on one song and that it’s pretty obvious who it is, so he’s not going to say. He also said that they'll probably be starting work on the next album after the Unity tour with New Order and that the new musical they wrote during lockdown is another Hans Christian Anderson story and requires a naked actor!

The “extra element” will be two hundred flags on fishing rods in the bloody way. 😡

No doubt it’s Macca … He’ll be given a chair to sit on at the end of the song which will break suddenly as well

Well given they just played Purple Zone before chatting about the special guest it seems likely to me that it will be Marc Almond. Makes sense as well as it’s the most recent thing they’ve done and they might shift a couple more records.

Also mentioned …

- Two albums worth of songs written
- More UK dates for next year will be announced after Glaston
- More European dates eg Paris
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

The special guest is going to be Olly on Dreamland. Surely that's the obvious choice. I don't think it will be Marc on Purple Zone because that's a Soft Cell song.

You can even tell in the way the song is staged. Neil walks down the right hand stairway, singing. There’s an obvious gap for Olly on the left hand stairs.
Woof.

If it is Olly on Dreamland then I'm just glad that they're reclaiming It's A Sin for themselves.

I just listened to the clip and yes, it is The Emperor's New Clothes, though their musical is called Naked.

I didn't realise they were mates with Fab Macca Wacky Thumbs Aloft. What is the story behind that?
