Allegedly new Specials album coming.
I keep getting Facebook / Instagram messages to presale link and when I go there the offer is over.
But I can’t find any other info other than promoting next year’s tour.
Anyone know anything???????
Looks like maybe it was a first pressing offer, linked to the ticket sales offer, but it has closed now so we will have to wait for more general sales? Saw the release date to be on 28 May 2021. Whether that is cast in stone I don’t know.
Thanks Lax that would explain the lack of detail anywhere else. Plus Lynval did say they didn’t even have a title for the album yet.
Lax did you give in to this?

I got it.
From what I have seen /heard it is great snd value for money. Just a shame there isn’t a vinyl version or they haven’t included the extra Dance Craze tracks maybe on a bonus disc?
Extra Dance Craze tracks? Do you mean the Madness ones that were left off of the CD reissue first time around ?

No they are on they aren’t they?
I meant the tracks in the movie that were never on the original recording( the ones you sent me).

Yeah it would've been nice if they had been included. I'm hoping for a bluray of the film with the soundtrack included. Doubt it'll happen though.

They have put a lot of time and money into this plus they have a habit of ‘extras’ once the main project is out, so I would not be surprised to see something else from this project??

Yeah maybe.

On another note I bought the reissued Absolute Beginners soundtrack on CD and that has Jerry's first solo track "Riot City" on it. A jazzy number which I like.

Like you and Marky have discussed, it looks like great value. I might get it but I haven't succumbed yet!
