Have we, between us, heard all of these? Several I don't recognise.

I heard a few of them live, certainly not all of them.
Some titles are very familiar (as he's played them at gigs for a couple of years already)!

I'm really looking forward to a "sound sample", so we'll get a glimpse of how the instrumentation/production sounds.

New to me are:
Satellites, Never Again Until The Next Time, Sunny Side Up & Last Lost Sheep.
Last time I heard it, Written Out had also been changed from the original version that had been played live.

We who wait for the perfect life... I surrender to the sugar crash in the Land of the overdose...
Back from the dead, I wish I could see clearly through the Atlantic Tunnel over to the True Believers...  ;D

Nice cover!

Looks a bit like the latest DTH album cover, it's the same label, thus the same cover art designer maybe?  :)

Now the memory isn't what it used to be but I did ask TV about the cover a few weeks ago. It's by a German art student whose tutor is the guy responsible for the "I Delete" cover art. I think TV's German promoter saw it at an exhibition but don't hold me to that!

Well, to me they do look a bit similar at first glance, but that's probably just because of a colourful image and white writing on a black background (yeah I'm an easy catch...):




Never mind, it is a good cover pic!

Cover is by Happi Müller, who's designed just about all my sleeves since "Useless." For those of you not watching the front page, you can get a little taster of the new album with a clip from new download single "No Hope Street" here http://werockwebzine.co.uk/tv-smith-releases-first-single-no-hope-street?platform=hootsuite

Wow!

I've been lucky enough to hear this song live several times, so I'm familiar with it's basic structure. I love the way the song, and subsequent verses start, with the acoustic guitar being joined by percussion and a fat bass with more layers of instrumentation (electric guitar and keyboards) building up into and over the chorus.

Many of TV's songs make me smile for various reasons, usually very clever lyrics, but I particularly enjoyed the right hand work on the percussive acoustic guitar around 2.05.

Many thanks for sharing this lovely taster for the album Tim - can't wait for it!

Happi Müller, indeed a familiar name when it comes to cover artwork (didn't he play bass on one of the albums too?)...

For those of you not watching the front page...

Well I did watch it from time to time, but not today.  :)
