Shouldn't they be focusing on the single they just put out?
It reeks a little of desperation and hit chasing state side but I enjoy the song so I can't complain.
The rush between "Touch", "No More Sad Song" and "Power" has made my head spin a bit but the single campaign may be a ways off.
The track screams they're about to have their Girls Aloud "Wake Me Up" moment and I can't wait to see the visual they come up with.

Maybe they just shot the video ? some artist shoot videos but don't release / promote them until months later due to scheduling (sometimes)

I hoep this is better than No More Sad Songs video, which didn't fit with the song itself at all

They moved on quickly from the current single then (which is looking set to be their lowest charting so far).

It's #8 on UK iTunes, so much for that.

And they only filmed the music video, who knows when it'll be out....

Their singles run looks like it's rushed, but that's due to the video for Touch being extremely late. No More Sad Songs is being neglected by them as they're still in the US trying to make it, which is why their team has it for 59p on iTunes.

This should be a good summer single. I expect a BGT performance.

Do people have no common sense?? The single hasn't been announced and won't be any time soon, they've simply shot the video! What's wrong with that? It seems practical to shoot the video (which could take weeks to edit) early and have a final cut ready that they can drop during the single campaign when they choose to do so. (If the "Touch" vid had come sooner it could've got a higher UK peak :wink: )

I would question the labels common sense more.
We all know that music videos are filmed early but allowing the info etc to hit social media while they've yet to even have a major performance of their current single inevitably shifts focus away but worse than that they're still in the U.S trying to make an impact with their previous single "Touch".
Having a release plan locked in isn't a problem but laying all your cards on the table at once makes it seem like they're rushing and desperate for a stateside hit.
I'm not going to complain because I like "Power" a lot more than "NMSS" but there's a reason why you get people to sign media releases when working on unreleased projects. It's about building hype and anticipation, even in in this iTunes, streaming, modern day world.

They're probably just shooting it whilst they're stateside and have a teeny gap in their schedule it won't be out before the end of May at earliest. Touch was shot in November.

This song is awful. It reminds me of Bang Bang. There are so many good songs to choose from and they go with this?!

Power, Your Love and Private Show would all make good singles IMO.

I like Touch and NMSS, but I don't think I'd have picked them as singles personally.

Ewwwwww the worst song on the album
Bring me home in a blinding dream
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again

It seems this song is quite polarising, which isn't a good thing. The new marmite of music.

Does anyone else think the spoken / "rap" bits sound a bit like American Life? I've thought it since I first heard the song:

I drive my mini cooper
And I'm feeling super-duper
Yo they tell me I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied...

I make this look easy
Tick Tick, boom, like gasoline-y
Yeah, they call me Lamborghini
'cause I know just what I'm worth...
