Double A-side single: Snow in Sun – Robin Hood
In the Scritti Politti Yahoo-group Richard posted that on September 4th a new single will be released: Snow In Sun. To which Rhodri replied it was gonna be a double A-side along with Robin Hood.
If this is correct, it is excellent timing, since on September 5th the Mercury award ceremony will take place. But a word of caution, these dates tend to drift a little. I do wonder if and how the nomination for Mercury has influenced sales for White Bread Black Beer. It must have had some effect, for a short time it got back in the top 50 on Amazon UK, but it’s nowhere to be found right now… i just checked!
As for the choice of single, i slightly prefer Robin Hood over Snow in Sun. I don’t like the first seconds of Snow In Sun, but once it hits its stride, it’s a lovely song.
Would be great if there are non-album tracks on the single, but no news on that yet!
