Ooh, that's quite an exclusive for pac-a-mac! Wonder if there will be more than one song.
If just the one, guess that will effectively be the single...

tuning in now said it's on in an hour.

Said it's a personal album that touches back on Damon Albarn's britpop day's with a more mature/wiser point of view. [paraphrasing]

So sounds like a natural progression from the first GBQ album.

wow tonnes of lyrics a little bit like alex turner chucking in loads of content. I'd have to listen to it a few times, but it really cuts through but definitely feeling very GBQ.

Did it have a verse/chorus structure?
What was it called?
The title track (Merrie Queen) perhaps?
More info, please!

- Merrie Land the title track.
- No obvious chorus
- Loads of talk/singing, and what sounds like Damon albarn giggle/singing half way through.

Sorry it's hard to really construct it as I'm supposed to be working right now. You can really hear Tony Allen's drumming coming through just as he did on the last album.

I'm sure youtube will have it on soon.

It somewhat structurally reminded me of "There Are Too Many of Us" which happens to me my least favorite "TMW" track. I feel in both instances it go somewhere further "sonically"..... But perhaps I need to hear the track and how it fits with the rest of the album which I found was the case w/"Humanz" (even though I rate that effort lowly)......
