Apparently it’s debuted at number 51 in the UK charts.

I like it. Just adds to the question of “why has Ezrin, Shep, and Alice brought in studio musicians for the last two albums?” This band should be recording with him.
My thought as well. It's so good to hear his stage band together like this. They are excellent, and all that stage camaraderie has got to have a positive effect on their chemistry. I suppose that there are reasons for guest artists in the studio is simply because they enjoy having friends play. That, or they don't want to say "no." That's plain speculation, but here's a fact: The last "pure" studio album without any guests was 33 years ago: "Raise You Fist and Yell."

PS: They killed the original link. HERE is the new one.
Move aside, mere drop of water - let the ocean pass.

Bit disappointing to see the pre-orders pop up on ebay for a profit and on FB fan pages folk are complaining they cant get one. I know it is not Alice's fault or the Alice camp at fault but it sucks that genuine fans are being scalped for vinyl, sometimes the internet can be a pain in the ass.

Having listened to it more, I think I definitely like it. I like it more than pretty much anything from recent years, apart from the Fireball. I know it's not going to last and the song will never be seen live - neither is Fireball apparently - but right now I like it a lot.

I'd like to see them catch out those out for a buck by announcing an increase of the numbers pressed. Seems like there's demand for it.

I've enjoyed it & downloaded from iTunes. But, if a 7" is being released what do they have for a "B" side?
They do have cover art for it. Collectors will snap it up!
I'm just hoping for some actual airplay on the Local Rock Station.
They have picked up* The Stones "Ghost Town" & as good as that is I like AC's more.
It's not as depressing. :(
*As far as the "Pick Up The Bones" comparison, we must remember what key AC sings in.
They don't use an acoustic for many of his songs except to fill out the tracks. The chord they use does seem to be played almost exactly though.
I say whatever works to get airplay. Bowie covered many an Iggy tune & got a hit with "China Girl"! :8):

I doubt this will get any radio action. Those days are long gone.
The Stones Living In A Ghost Town is getting a lot of airplay on Radio 2 in the UK. It's being played several times a day every day.


Alice is not in the same league. Not even close.

Anyone know how many were pressed?

Very annoying, i didnt know they were planning on releasing anything until my friend told me last night. went to check and boom - sold out.

They should do it like "limited run games" do, they put up the pre order for x number of days, get all the pre orders then make that number of games and no more. Seems a sensible way of doing it as all fans get a copy and no wasted stock.

Kind of bummed the vinyl was sold out. I didn't even know it was available on vinyl. I thought it was just a download. Maybe they'll produce more since it sold out?

Seems like the 7 inch is back in stock. Not sure for how long though, so be quick!

Showing on ear music (in UK) as in stock, it lets you order 10, not that I have. But I hope that person on ebay ends up with a lot of vinyl he cant flog for anything more than he paid :rotfl:

Now that I have had a few glasses of clarity I think the fact the guitar riff is similar to pick up the bones is on purpose. Pick up the bones was a song about despair. This song is about hope, even in that despair there is hope.

Not a bad connection, I must say. We may get more details if AC (or the band) gets pressed on this.
Wouldn't hurt the promotion aspect of the release. Wicked! :clap:

It still shows as available here. I can press the pre-order button and checkout.
Glad you were able to get one through those other sites! :clap:

EarMusic have form for their "Limited Edition" releases selling out then going back on sale so I'm quite sure everyone who wants one will get a copy at a fair price. For Sound Of A they even increased a previously announced production run of 4,000 to 6,000!

Back to the song, I assume Alice is currently camped up in Phoenix so it was interesting he implied that he was in Detroit at the end.

That's a polite request not an order

As I can see you can still order it.
