Ohhh, this is sooo good!

First listen (VPNs are worth the investment!): I'd have expected to have more of Christine in the vocals for the first single so the lack prominent vocals is a surprise.

It's sonically softer than SWS, which is a good thing. That works for Lindsey solo but wouldn't mesh with Christine.

The chorus is super catchy.

Lindsey is still using the varispeed vocals that were on SWS. I like it here and on SWS but I know some people didn't (sorry, elle!).

Production notes: Lots of hard panning going on. It sounds like everything is close to left-centre-right. It's very wide when you listen on headphones. This is something I really, really like since it comes close to my day-job's niche.

On second listen: If Christine is here, she's very buried. I do agree that she's more present in the instrumentation in a very good way.

Probably more notes to follow.

EDIT: On third listen and I'm grooving away with a massive smile on my face

EDIT 2: It makes me think of Did You Miss Me from GOS as a lead single. It isn't that similar musically but both are good pop songs with enough of a quirk to keep them interesting. The only thing I could do without are the Big Love grunts, but I wonder if they aren't intentionally recalling that song for some reason. I haven't dug into the lyrics yet to see if there could be some reference.

I think the chorus is "Dancing, spinning, dreaming" as the penultimate line. Not totally sure.

Argh about varispeed, I really really hoped he'd grow out of that. Hate that he didn't and that Christine didn't make him stop with that. Also dislike possible similarity to DYMM, that song sounded like cheap pop formula to me... I really hope the parts of it reminds you of are not the parts I strongly dislike- such as DYMM chorus. This is not promising I was hoping for something more like sad angel or that's the way love goes, musically.
Thanks so much for all the early reviews guys!

This must mean I'm going to like it.

It's not as prominent as on a lot of the SWS stuff so maybe it'll be ok?
The song is definitely not a rocker like either of those but it is darker than DYMM. It's maybe more like End of Time. Or a mix between the two.

All I know is I've listened to it 17 times and I'm still enjoying it

It's really promising if you are enjoying it, hope that's not just because you've been deprived of new lb music since 2013! Darker than DYMM is good, although I was ambivalent on EOT - it is too adult contemporary sounding for my taste although I like the lyrics. Can't wait to hear!

Oh I suspect lot of keyboards in this one is Froom, not Christine, since this is one started in 2012, but who knows.

It would be nice if we had more reviews or people would elaborate more.

I think bass is John. It's a great bassline either way. Drums is a mix between drums that are potentially Mick (they're not too explosive) and wee percussive hits that jump left and right. Could equally be Mick or Lindsey-loops.
Overall, I lean to it being Mick.

It there a distinct backbeat?

What do you want to know and I'll try to answer.

My summary is that it is like the more poppy things from Lindsey's last two albums. I'm almost certain Christine is absent from the vocals. I think all of the backing vocals are Lindsey. Sounds like there are 3 of him in the chorus - lead vocal, a delayed/echo version and a slightly manipulated version further back.
Instrumentally it is driven by the rhythm section with a acoustic guitar picking over the top. There are synth/keyboards in the background and some piano licks in the instrumental sections.

It is really surprising Christine isn't prominent but you can feel her influence.

There is a Mick-esque beat going the whole time. I'm listening to the middle section where the vocals drop out and there are fills that sound like Mick.
