Any source for this? Or is it the good ol' ass-to-ear news bulletin?

If it doesn't come with a poll, it doesn't exist.

It's true.

The only one song from the new album you'll listen in the Dreamland Tour is Dreamland (because that's the title of the tour), the rest of it will be hits.

In fact, the new album won't have a commercial sound but they have plans for a new album next. A new electronic album with a more commercial sound (something similar they did with Elysium/Electric).

Well the title of the tour is actually "Dreamworld" ... but anyway it's good to hear these facts come flying in

:wink:
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Neil must have a new Spanish boyfriend. Or butler.

I'd be very happy with a dark album from them. You know, proper bleakness. I mean, the closest they came was with "Fundamental".
Might be me watching the excellent Netflix show "Dark", it's set in Germany and it's a total mood. And they said Berlin was a major inspiration, so...
That could be some uncharted territory for them, hinted with the much mentioned "The lost room".

We've had two manic albums in a row, so I'm more than happy with a change of pace - providing the songs are up to scratch, as they were on Behaviour. Dark is fantastic. Berlin is utterly bleak from about now to April, so anything that reflects that mood is fine with me.

The idea that they might have songs for a subsequent album is hardly profoundly revelatory. The campaign for their last studio album, Super, begun in January 2016, meaning four full years will have passed between campaigns by the time the new record emerges. Essentially, they are a year behind in their usual cycle. Of course they'll have new songs ready for a subsequent album. They're nothing if not utterly prolific.

But before we start looking ahead, I'd rather like to focus on the new album first. It hasn't actually been released yet and every album they record doesn't need to obliterate Alderaan.

The most successsful non US show is Spanish: La Casa de Papel (Money Heist). It's a hit in Germany too.

The soundtrack is very ectronic.

You can listen to it here:

I love this one:

I love it, I don't know if someone here has watched the show.

You'd better let Neil and Chris know that the tour is called Dreamland, as they and everyone else apart from you seem to think it's called Dreamworld.. :wall: :wall: :wall:
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

I've seen the show, dear nickname... but you've kind of missed the point of my post.

The idea of Dreamland turn into Worldland because it's a world tour. Dreamland is obviously the main idea to call the tour that way. That's why it's going to be played on tour.

We can't expect big anthems for the new album. All of them go in the next album

I’m expecting more of this. Not really a change of pace.
