  1. Getting use to him singing in his high voice takes a bit getting used to. But this song is definitely a grower, so bear with it and enjoy!

    normally a fan, but those upfront high pitched vocals are doing nothing for me.

    I‘m also not 100% sold but then again it fits with his brand of the first single being a bit out there / weird (Popular, On the Verge of Something Wonderful, Talk Talk Talk).

  4. Sorry to be superficial but he looks amazing. The working out has obviously helped.

  5. Not enjoying this new single at all. I was super excited for new material by him after his amazing vocals on "Cold to me" with Louis Laroche.

  6. I love him and so far I loved each and every one of his albums, so I was really excited when I heard of his comeback. I am glad to see that he is well and releasing new music <3
    Sadly, the new song doesn't do much for me. I still like his voice and don't mind the high voice - but the lyrics are a bit of a let down and it's quite repetitive. But, as others have already stated, his first singles never were the best songs of the album...so I still look forward to the new album.

  7. Experiencing same feelings as most of you. A bit of a let down is my primary feeling and I've loved everything he's done. Then again, Talk Talk Talk was underwhelming considering the monster singles Black Out the Sun and Bloodstained Heart and beautiful album that came after it..

  8. Even if you don't like this song...

    We get a tour. Filled with all the classics. Oh to hear Bloodstained Heart live again. Yes I'll cry!

    On The Verge of Something Wonderful was positively mainstream compared to the rest of its parent album ddd.

    This is definitely more akin to Insatiable in terms of his vocal style even though it’s very different in terms of instrumentation and tempo.

    You are of course correct. Somehow I always think of Step Into The Light as the big ‚hit’ of the album even though it wasn‘t even a single.

    Now Me, Myself and (I)… that was a left-field choice of single.

  12. I don't know how to feel about Let's Try Being In Love, which randomly started playing this morning and I had to stop what I was doing and sit down when I heard his voice! The song, however...
  13. … slaps?

  14. It’s a triumph of a song and I won’t hear a word against it.

    “Will I die alone?” almost made me weep in the shower this morning. Relatable king.

  15. So i decided to try my hand at a remix of the single - I totally created a new backing track from scratch and gave it a 90s house piano feel and some further electro synths. I hope you like it. The track has really been on constant rotation for me....

  17. Getting 'Bananarama, all the members, all the hair' or whatever that motto was. Is Peter Loraine behind this?
  18. I don't like the new song, too many high notes which can be jarring, but so glad to see him back. He deserves a proper comeback and album. When he has the right song and sound he shines.

    He deserves more credit as an artist!

    It could mean nothing but Steve Anderson reposted Darren's Tour Announcement on his stories. I would not know what to do with myself if he was involved with the Tour arrangements.
