I've been translating all of this for an hour or so. Thanks to the ones who appreciate that effort.

By the way, the journalist says it was Neil the one to call them for the interview when they asked for it. He was very talkative. But the best thing is he said several times how proud they are of this new album. One of their best for them.The album has several evident glimpses to the production of their first works. They like a lot Monkey Business, by the way. I suppose this is the reason why this is the main single from the album and it has a proper video.

By the way.

I think there is a proper video. I don't think they are going to put a single cover and that's all. You know, there is not a lyric video. :twisted:
I said that and it's going to happen.

Poor haters.
But you didn't KNOW for certain, did you. You were guessing/hoping. A big difference. You weren't told by PSB or their management for instance.. The issue for many of us here, is you make your statements/assumptions as if they are fact rather than what they actually are - which is your personal opinion..

That said, your translation of this interview is appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you for translating! I just used the Translate option for Google Chrome, it could've saved you the trouble.

You better check this translation in Google translate if you want to be sure that nickname isnt manipulating the content in order to confirm his previous assumptions ;)

But the fact is that's true. Someone already have posted some news from this interview. Strange you didnt notice.
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

When I taked about a new video, it was a guessing it and I explained why. As you can see my thoughts became true. Maybe you believe I'm silly but I'm not.

The new album after this one was something certain. There was a reliable source which corfirmed that.

I have to admit I didn't know this source was talking about Disco 5. It's the only little mistake I could recognize. Anyway, there is a new album on the way. Yes.

By the way, they described this album like a kind of transition album and they are thinking about the future.

And they don't want to retire. :mrgreen:

To be fair is there an album that Neil doesn't think is great?

In the further listening booklets he rates all the albums - even release.

It depends on what they say. It's not the same when you are saying "it's a really good album" than "it's one of our best albums".

Great post, thanks for posting that.

Best bit, I'm sure most will agree, "We do not plan to retire"
