After Trapper Man.

Nice find.
First reaction: sounds great!

Hmm, trying to think what it sounds like. Typical mid-tempo MK solo work I guess, sounds good to me. I like the lyric as well.

Yes, I love it when Mark acknowledges current times in his songs. "If there was still a phonebook", "Twenty thousand tickets sold online on premium sale".

Can't wait to hear the whole song. It sounds a bit like the Shangri-La period (5:15, Trawlerman's, etc). If he would just make one more record, I hope he comes up with more songs like this. I can't explain it precisely. But it's probably my favorite post-TRD type of song.

Just from the snippet, I can understand how this song had to compete against Trapper Man and Dancefloor. It should have at least been on the bonus disc.

I can not wait too

"Just from the snippet, I can understand how this song had to compete against Trapper Man and Dancefloor. It should have at least been on the bonus disc"

I think so too but I do not know why it seems to me that the song will be very short.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

After listening to the snippet a few times, it touches me, unexpectedly. It takes me back to the excitement of the KTGC and Privateering snippets and what's more to come. Last years were strange, and it doesn't help that the touring is over, something I always looked forward to. Feels like a new era, for me personally as well. It also seems fitting. Though I have no clue what the song is about, it doesn't really matter what he releases; I always love it :)

Thanks for that.  Sounds quite nice but definitely need to hear the whole to make a proper judgement.

How do you feel about these lyrics for now?

You could sing the phonebook
If there was still a phonebook
You could sing the phonebook
It would sound beautiful to me

Is this the chorus? The bridge? Or one of the verses? Anybody have a clue?

The melody sounds great in this snippet and I wonder how it sounds as a whole.

Anybody also know the full length of it maybe? How long is it?

I always say exactly that!
He could read or sing the phonebook and I would be happy!
