A brand new song? The new single and a whole new tune – not featured on last year’s magnificent ‘Soulprints’ album.
And could it also be classed as magnificent? We would insist. This might well be the best thing they’ve ever done. And they’ve made a LOT of great pop tunes.
What’s it like? Ironically, it’s more similar to their early, electro stuff, than it is to some of their newer stuff. The early stuff which we can’t link to as they asked us to delete it all a few years back when they were embarking on their sonic and stylistic reinvention. And we obliged. Despite the fact that our biggest bugbear with popstars is when they turn their back on their early material. You no longer want to be associated with those tunes your existing fans love so much? Oh. Thanks. That’s not insulting at all.
You’re digressing. Sorry. Dumb. Or ‘DUMB’ rather! It’s incredible. We’re gonna be listening to this for a long time to come. Until they delete it from the internet anyway.
You can find ‘Dumb’ on our Best New Pop playlist. Right at the very top where it belongs.
