Can’t wait to hear this album now.
Yep I dig it. I grabbed it from Spotify.

Marky have you ordered it yet, where did you get it from as I need to do it?
Not seen a physical copy yet. There is a download at Amazon UK for 99p. Me I just grabbed it from Spotify with some software for now.
I meant the album pre order? I was waiting to see what options there were like delux versions etc.
Ah ok I haven't seen it isted to buy as yet. Only know the two disc set will have a live sow as the second disc.

As you all might know, Lynval lives up here and he was at a dinner party that two of my bandmates went to. He played some of the album for them and answered questions and was, by all accounts, a "top bloke."

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

I do like it and the lyrics are great but it's a bit understated for a comeback tune. I'm hoping for something a bit livelier from the new album.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I agree mate. I think it's a good track and sounds more like an album track than a single. Just happy that it's not a let down considering some of the stuff released under The Specials name in the past.

Had to order the vinyl from Amazon in the end as couldn't find a local retailer that is stocking it. Apparently not listed on local record company's release schedule :huh:

This is going to be a Special week!!!
Feel like I did as a teenager waiting to hear the new Specials single in the shop on Thursday afternoons.
Apart from the single have avoided all other tracks, waiting to get my hands on the vinyl!!
