Just heard a 90 sec sample on iTunes (change your region to Australia). Nothing groundbreaking if I'm honest from what I've heard. Will probably be the worst out of the three we've heard so far. And yes, it's a duet.

It definitely reminds me of Mr Carbohydrate. I can also hear some, let's say The Great Western vibes in it. Anyway, nice melodic song after the first listen.

Love it too. James was absolutely spot on when he said it would sound like Don't Go Breaking My Heart. James' voice sounds fucking incredible and The Anchoress' blends really well with it.

Charming little number.

First time I’ve properly heard her voice too - really nice.

Weakest of the three tracks but very catchy. Sounds like a couple of songs which both names escape me.

It sounds like Don’t Go Breaking My Heart via Out of Time via Make Me Smile

It’s gorgeous and I love it a lot.

Oh, I spent at least ooh, 2 minutes deciding who was going to be who.

Mmm it’s very safe and doesn’t really have any punch or wow to it. Just a bit meh for me on first couple of listens. As Manics male/female duets go it’s the weakest so far. In terms of the “it’s sounds like this” comparisons, I thought it was a cover of ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ by Amy Winehouse at first! Mind you, that song samples old Motown (‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’) which James is obviously a fan of.

I like the production but that's about it. Maybe it will grow or maybe I have to grow. Am I the only one getting Beautiful South vibes from it?

Guitar breaks sound a little like the outro to Wuthering Heights
