The Divine Comedy have released their latest album on cassette.
Now that's niche. 35k followers on twitter. How many of them would actually own a cassette player to justify buying a new album on that format.

The new single is nice,like it,but I´m afraid of a new Release-Album..

All looks so grey,hopeless,I like more the uplifting.No wonder,they make a Greatest Hits tour,because with the ballads,you reach not that much spectators.

I don’t like the album title.
I don’t like the album artwork
And I don’t like...I don’t like the new song particularly much
I don’t like much really do I?
But what I do like (none of this) I love passionately

The lost room has been locked, sealed, concreted over, all architectural drawings have been burned and all those connected sent to the gulag.

Don‘t give up on this one. If all seems to be forgotten forever, it could still be a b-side. :)
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

I don't think that on Neil's mind hotspot is the internet thing.
If we consider his own political ideas, after Agenda, Dreamland, his avversion to Brexit and Trump,
I bet he's referring to the migrants hotspot.
Expressing passion, explaining pain
This is my kind of music

Well at least we know that Monkey Business and Wedding In Berlin are carried over from other albums.

Must say I’m not the biggest fan of the cover but that’s mainly because it doesn’t fit in with the theme from the first two trilogy albums (primary colour block shapes) or the Dreamland artwork. Fingers crossed that they keep the Berlin underground station theme for the singles at least.

Could well be, I thought it was from the Super sessions
