I wonder if the song with the underground train is Wedding in Berlin.

Go to 1:45 (an intro for a new song in a "Where the streets have no name" way?)

It's the only thing I see with some interest about the sound of these underground trains from Berlin.

Please don't let it be an exercise in Trump / Brexit bashing... that would be cringy now, and painful in retrospect.

I couldn't agree more. Trump/Brexit bashing is getting a tad tedious (boring) these days and a bit of a cliche.

Will it include a song about Trump winning the Nobel peace prize?

I love the atmospherics of their albums though - Chris recording trains is DEFINITELY promising.

Got to agree - sounds intriguing.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Regardless of one’s personal politics, the PSB have definitely let the political climate of the day influence their songwriting, their albums.

Exhibit 1:

“Actually” and Thatcherism. Would “King’s Cross” have ever been written in a different political climate?

My favorite albums are the political ones (Actually and Fundamental). Having said that, Electric is also in my top 3.
