💿 How Good Is It Really 💿 Rio

The Chauffeur is a tune, eh? This is probably the last album i’d of ever thought of actually listening to but it has some decent stuff on it.

Ha ha, that’s quite something. Coxon joining Duran Duran?! Or maybe he’s just doing one track.

Also 3 years?! Even factoring in Covid that’s a hell of a time to be tweaking

It’s not completely abnormal when there are guests (there’s also guest producers on the record - Ronson & Moroder)

But yeah, they’d probably planned a 2020 release but then Covid

Reading the tweet in full it sounds like he’s now a band member. Bet Alex James is seething that he wasn’t asked.

New single is decent tbf, no great departure but it’s got a good chorus.

Avery had this on the other day and it was pretty boring and MOR tbh.
