I think I posted about it on another thread... A while ago Zane Lowe said he was gonna premiere it tomorrow 23/9

But now, if you go to his website it says 24/9 so wednesday

This is not confidence instilling.

Are we sure the album is actually complete yet? Warner initially didn't know what the bonus track would be. The single is two days late now...

the original premiere was the 23 not today

on Zane Lowe's site it says tomorrow theres a concert or something special, guess thats why the premiere is on Wed, but thats all dpeculation on my side

but actually we dont know if it's gonna go on air/on sale on itunes, if it's gonna be released later, if there's gonna be a physical Cd, b-sides, we know nothing!!

do physical cds still exist??? very very few artists do them now Id say

I have trust enough in Warner and Damien that nobody involved would have taken the steps we've seen (album announcement, website relaunch, tour announcement and ticket sale) if there wasn't a complete album. In a different thread you suggested (or passed on the rumour) that the album had been completed for a good number of months and Damien might just be struggling to strike a deal on his terms. As much as I want to hear the new song, part of me is also happy that the professionalisation of this release hasn't come full circle yet and there are still some uncertainties and possible surprises.

Eh, not so much, Matt. I mean the recording can be complete but production not done.

Dave Matthews Band recorded their most recent album in the Winter/Spring 2012. They released it in September 2012. They actually released a song in like August (Drunken Soldier) with a lyric on it that didn't exist when the full album was released a month later. They were still working in post-production and made a minor adjustment to the song, using a different vocal track recording. This is not unheard of.

Essentially, it was like if My Favourite Faded Fantasy on the album ends up having the non-falsetto vocal track that's on the youtube teaser instead of the vocal track that was on the full track released on 9/8.

I'm not saying there won't be an album. But I'm wondering if it's actually finalized and locked in yet. It's still more than a month before release, they could easily be working on it and making some changes still.

The press release actually said that it would be available "later this month" and premiered on Zane Lowe on the 23rd. Maybe at BBC they had decided to air it on September 23 and then postponed it to the 24th.
But it was never supposed to be on the 22th...

"The first single “I Don't Want To Change You” will be available at the end of September and will make its premiere on “Zane Lowe” on Tuesday, September 23. "

They might, though my personal guess is that it's already wrapped up. Your previous comment just sounded too conspirational to my ears ("not confidence instilling"). I see no obvious reason to doubt the existence and release of the album on the announced date, which (combined with him actually showing up in Berlin :-)) is all that matters to me at this point.

Well, since I pre-ordered the deluxe set with the wooden cd case, they'd better still exist!

Seriously, I don't purchase very many cds any longer, usually only for my very favourite artists. We also buy vinyl whenever available.

The pictures from the Kex listening session on dr.com show people actually holding cds and wooden boxes. I'd say everything is finished and ready to ship.

there never was any "official" word that the new single would be out on the 22nd/23rd. Only some media reports saying Zane Lowe would premiere it on radio. There's nothing to worry about, of course the album is complete. Now for *that* you have an official date

I phrased that poorly.

I was trying to say it was concerning in regards to just how much chaos is going on right now. We know the album details weren't finalized when it was announced because of the TBD bonus song. I'm wondering if its the same old craziness behind the scenes or if things have become more professional this time around.

This seems extremely unlikely given that a week ago they didn't even know what the bonus song was going to be.

Also, in the last ten years or so, the music industry has changed the timeline in order to combat piracy. Most of the "leaked" albums that got out weeks in advance were really just copies snuck out from the cd pressing or shipping companies. Now that stuff gets done much later in the process. It would be a bit unusual for them to have pressed actual CDs (not just media copies which are watermarked) over a month in advance.

Had the same thought! Also, I doubt there would be such a come back after eight years if they didn't have it all set...

The strings in the little clip immediately made me think of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQcYGx_jzlU

... sure the actual song won't though!

Was hoping to catch it at 7 sharp, but it seems to be buried inside the show and I have to run now. Chance of a recording, anyone? And is there any chance of album preorders getting the single as a free download, like with MFFF?

Probably not my smartest comment, but have we identified the song as an already known one yet? The preview sounds a lot like "The Box" to my ears.

I was hoping for it to be 'No One Need Know.'

Nothing is jumping out as really familiar in the clip to me.

I don't know if they will play it today... Zane Lowe didn't mention anything yet and, as marti posted above, it's listed for the 24th on the BBC site. Maybe no one at radio 1 let Damien camp know the song was being pushed back to tomorrow

i've been listening all this time and he hasn't mentioned a thing about Damien Rice; which makes me think it won't air today :'(
