Very strange single choice.

Midnight Train screamed to be a single. By the time they'll release it (if they ever), it'll be too late.

I am currently pretty hooked on this album. Scars is probably my favourite.
I finally ordered a copy of this and also from his debut. It's weird how I always dismissed him for the most part and now warming up to his music.

Better late than never :D
He really got one of the best voices in the industry right now but still is so underrated.

I thought "The Thrill Of It All" was a good album but somehow I was over it so quickly compared to his debut. But it also seemed like there wasn't much going on once it came out, barely any promo and messy single releases (IMO).

With "Dancing With A Stranger" being really good I hope he can have a better third era.

^ With this album I created my own singles, so the era took a long time for me, 9 full months: from September 2017 till May 2018. :D
That's the great thing about Spotify, creating your own current chart playlist. Love it.
And he's back already in my personal charts. Fire On Fire (third week now) and Dancing With A Stranger (set to enter my chart next week).

Too Good At Goodbyes: September - November 2017
Pray: October - December 2017
Burning: October - December 2017
Midnight Train: February - April 2018
HIM: March - April 2018
Nothing Left For You: April - May 2018

It's a pity he never relased Midnight Train.

Some claim it sounds a bit like Radiohead's Creep, he probably didn't want headlines and etc.
