Oh, this is cracker. To be fair, Caution I've only listened to once or twice so far but this I like from first listen.

I heard something familiar .. 1:41 and other places .. worked it out. Red Box, Lean On Me (From the very very young ..)

Isn't it annoying when one or two notes can play on your mind … or is it just me? 

He's just done it again  2:51… I tried going against my own soul's warning ...

Caution is my favourite song from 2020 thus far.

My Own Soul's Warning is my second favourite.

This thread was started in late January, so when does this album actually come out? I'd Google it but I'm too busy celebrating crying over having my Poll Driver status removed.  

I'm gonna guess later this month or August, aye?

From memory it was scheduled for May 31 - given the uncertainty and the fact that they have had to reschedule their UK stadium tour until next year they postponed it. Makes sense given that the tour will help to promote the album.
 

Some sites tell you December 31 release date but I don’t think that’s official, especially because I think they’re deciding to make changes to the album (I.e. the mixing etc I think, although cannot remember where I heard this!)

I remember reading this, too, so probably via their letter to FB or the one I got in the email?

The Killers, Bruce and others, just release the music you have now. And write, record and produce another album while you're doing nothing else. By the time everything opens back up they should have 3- 4 album by then and tour with no older songs being played.

I could be wrong but I don't believe tours sell albums anymore.

I’ll respectfully disagree with that. Album recording during lockdown is difficult - nobody is in the same place, not everyone has the means, facilities or skills to self-record, band members have families to look after, they have other priorities, not to mention the fact that many artists are saying they don’t know how to write and release in the current climate

Regarding the tours selling albums, perhaps they don’t sell as many physical copies but they’ll certainly boost streaming numbers. Each year after Glastonbury the UK iTunes Charts are filled with the best performers, and the same has happened when big tours have taken place (such as the last Killers tour, or whenever Coldplay tour)

@Eileen I read this article this eve and thought you’d appreciate it - Brandon Flowers in conversation with Phoebe Bridges, who is one of my favourite artists. Brandon says they are still working on the mastering of one more track!

I really enjoyed that - thanks, @BobbyJames!

I read the whole of Brandon's part in his accent. :) Loved it.
