What are you talking about? It's a Manic Street Preachers cover?

Well I read... Oh..
"Hahahaha!!"

Ah! I'm just bottom left diagonally... Lit!"

The more I listen to it the more it sounds like a Rewind the Film era song. Certainly in terms of the phrasing. And RTF was almost 10 years ago. That makes me feel old. Really old.

Just preordered the deluxe edition on iTunes. I'm really digging the guitar/piano on Orwellian, it's super catchy. Definitely feeling the Lifeblood vibe too which is great. James sounds terrific!

Not a chance. There's next to no crossover between singles and albums charts these days, other than a handful of the absolute biggest pop artists. The 1975 are one of the biggest bands in the world at the moment, and only two of the seven singles from their last record got into the top 40; even Coldplay only got to 27 with the lead single from their last album. The Manics haven't had a single in the top 200 in eight years, hit songs aren't even on their radar these days.

Given it a listen now on Spotify. It's okay. I'm off to sleep now. I'm sure tomorrow I will play it a few times on repeat and be like 'it's really good!' haha. Don't expect a fun or exciting video going from the 'album teaser', be boring scenery shots and the band standing around looking bored I assume...
