This makes me glad in some ways that I haven't heard any of the clips associated with The Best Thing yet. When I get the studio version, I can pretty much judge whether I like it on the merits, and not the "remix" or "beach clip" parts I might keep hearing in my head.

Exactly. I know that you had knocked me for thinking the TBT would probably still be the lead even after the letters came out. But you're right, it doesn't make much sense at all. The letters had what you would assume would be the desired effect. They hit social media and everyone from NME to COS wrote pieces about it. It was a great move. So now to come out with TBT just seems strange, and counterproductive.

I have my fingers crossed that it is The Blackout, and that possibly the Mediawhatever site that had the info about TBT impacting radio, was them going with older title information that had been floating around.

Hopefully this all becomes clear this week, and there is an actual plan. But right now it seems like convoluted second guessing that has plagued them for too long now.

Fixed that one for you.

Well, at least it's keeping it on our toes.

I wonder if we're due for another Linear/Films of Innocence kind of thing, where Blackout is the central theme?

i see your point, as maybe an explanation for the whole Blackout thing.
But while Linear was interesting, it was probably seen by a minuscule amount of people. I wish they would spend their time on more productive promotionals and extras.
I think Linear and the acoustic SOI sessions were a huge waste of time and energy. Would much rather see them doing surprise promo gigs, TV appearances, bonus songs from leftover material, or things like that.

I don't think we've ever had so many pieces of information and known so little...

It'd be a weird, but cool experiment to play a small show and debut the new album by playing it in its entirety live.

Is that the same crowd that got to hear Blackout 5 times?
