S'ok, i know it wasn't you questioning the song. I've not heard it either but i don't see this release as the wrong thing to do. I've not heard anything from BP and i'm not really interested in it as a whole but i'll look forward to a single.madhatter88 wrote:Not knocking the song Dave because obviously I haven't heard it, just questioning the logic of releasing a single for a soundtrack of an event that took place nearly a year ago. It doesn't make commercial sense, especially as single releases are loss making exercises anyway.
Why not just concentrate on the new material which is long overdue, by the time the new album is released it will be 4 years between studio albums.
I cannot see this release effecting the new album at all. It could be a good thing. Because the film is so famous, this release will probably generate good publicity. They can use this to start promoting the new album. Telling everyone that they will be releasing a new album next year, letting fans know they wont have to wait much longer. I know we all know on here that that new material is imminent, but thousands wont know.
PopArt did sell over 100,000 copies, probably double that now, so there is still interest.
There was something else i was going to add but i'm concentrating so much on the horse racing, i've forgotten.
