Regarding The Wheel, I'll have to confess I think the 1:26 instrumental intro goes on a bit too long


This is why she created the 'edit' with an intro of just 20 seconds. Now on Spotify.

A revolving wheel of metal chairs
Hung on chains, squealing
Four little children flying out
A blind man sings in Arabic
Hey little children don't disappear
(I heard it was 28,000)
Lost upon a revolving wheel
(I heard it was 28,000)
Now you see them, now you don't
Children vanish behind a vehicle
Now you see them, now you don't
Faces, limbs, a bouncing skull
Hey little children don't disappear
(I heard it was 28,000)
All that's left after a year
(I heard it was 28,000)
A faded face, the trace of an ear
(I heard it was 28,000)
A tableau of the missing
Tied to the government building
8000 sun-bleached photographs
Faded with the roses
Hey little children don't disappear
(I heard it was 28,000)
Lost upon a revolving wheel
(I heard it was 28,000)
All that's left after a year
(I heard it was 28,000)
A faded face, the trace of an ear
(I heard it was 28,000)
And watch them fade out
And watch them fade out

Amazon Japan and Amazon US says The Wheel 7" Vinly will be released on 19 February. So maybe we don't have to wait until April :smile: Also February makes sense considering LES but not make sense considering tour dates :down:

Thanks! Pre-ordered. :grin:

Do we know if Vagrant is releasing the album in the US?

Yes.

I think it might be someone else playing the sax this time. When I saw "Recording in Progress" there was some other guy on the sax.

Yeah, there was Mike Smith (who has worked with "Gorillaz" and "Blur"), Terry Edwards and a few other people.

28.000 could be chosen only because it fits in the song, lyrically with the melody
and musically it reminds me more Bitter Branches then The glorious Land

I'm just finding the track stronger with each listen. I really don't find it like LES at all. Its more in your face, not nearly as understated. I would describe LES as having sort of a laid back sound, understated. The melody really hits you in the head and makes you listen. And her voice is different too, more engaged and less narrator. The sound is fuller and more direct, more urgent than anything on let england shake. Come on people, its PJ. She's not going to start repeating herself now. I just listened to all of LES this morning and I really thing the feel is totally different.

I agree with you, I was referring to the articles in the link above where they look much into 28000 & Let England Shake

I just listened to all of LES this morning and I really thing the feel is totally different.

Even if she tried to repeat herself she would sound different, but that is kinda basics for any artist (and they generally get a worse output when they try that), but the thing is, there is a distinct, refreshing difference between albums like TBYML/ITD, ITD/Stories or, the most extreme of all UHH/White Chalk, just to quote the most vivid and eye popping examples. The person who did White Chalk sounds completely different and unrecognisable from the persona of Uh Huh Her. I don't see it all here from LES to Hope Six.
Polly is a specialist, almost in a Academical level, on what she really is into now: geopolitics, so it is obvious that switching the landscape from England to global is a huge difference, for a specialist, but artistically and thematically speaking is not at all, specially because we have all the LES ingredients back again: war, death, uplifting melodies wrapping up quite dark lyrics, she is just sounding more abrasive and modern, departing from her highly folkish sonority from LES, but it still sounds quite reminiscent and I'm not really impressed.

That doesn't mean the album will be a bad one, but I really don't see it being as remarkable as LES and most of her catalogue. I like very much all songs I've heard so far and judging by the differences between The Wheel live and The Wheel in studio, we won't get anything that different from the production/mixing of the album, just something sounding way better. Polly never does bad songs, but just because they are good doesn't mean she did excel herself again or is sticking to her plan to do not repeat herself, unfortunately she is repeating herself. I just hope we don't get a trilogy on this subject because, even though these songs are beautiful and touching, I'm getting indifferent and tired about the theme, not to mention she is getting musically stationary insisting on it.
