When a Billboard article dated March 22nd says: “ new album reportedly coming soon” this tells me that either: - the reporter didn’t do his/her research - the band have no clue when it’ll be ready - management (who should be approving all write-ups) missed a huge opportunity
My money is on the second and third options. It’s March of the 40th anniversary year and THIS IS NEWS?
They are a band that looks ahead not back of course. That’s why NR worked on snippets he made with WC 15 years before rather than releasing a band album from the vaults (Reportage) or high-quality demos from the Astronaut sessions (Beautiful Colours would be a great title, which would make an 8 or 9 song album in itself, one of their better ones post-1993 as well)
