It seems the Boys have chosen I don't wanna as the track for playlist consideration on Spotify. It's featured on a number of New Music Friday -playlists for different countries.

Too bad the lyrics are not included with the CD insert. And so Neil and Chris took all the photos...which I can tell are from here in Berlin...I'm assuming with their iPhones. Here are the "credits" and "legalities" from the CD insert.

Olly Alexander helped write 'Dreamland'. Was it his idea to rhyme 'amnesia' with 'visa'? Very GCSE English Lit homework.

I don't care about lyrics in booklets, but what else in the booklet? I hope a lot of photos!

Interesting to read that Stuart Price is a co-writer of Monkey Business...

Seems like he co-wrote Say it to me also. There must be some sort of an agreement in place.

(Sorry no new album info, just resurrecting rather than making a new thread)

With Covid lockdown, they'd have lots of time to write, I imagine?

Wonder if we will get another EP out of them?

Let's hope so. As others have mentioned we could get an EP, Disco 5 or another new standalone album similar to what happened with Elysium being followed quickly by Electric.. :dance:

After all the people in the universe got the album, Hotspot finally arrived home (in Brazil).

Just to let you guys know that today was the first time I had a listen to it properly. 20 years after everyone.

By the way, the fifth single (if they had one) should be Wedding in Berlim.
