Years & Years - Night Call

  1. The original demo of what eventually became the Kylie collab leaked:
     
  2. The chorus is undeniable but those verses feel like they’re from a completely different song

  3. This is back in at no 83 on Apple in the U.K. (no 23 when Christmas songs are removed), so it’s shaping up to be something of a hit. I have no idea how much it will help sell the album though.

  4. Sweet Talker is such a bop until that terrible breakdown comes in. It's the only song from this era that I'm coming back to.
     
  5. Mikey will be performing tonight - first time since he left the band to just be a touring member.
     
  6. Ah that's nice! That special looks really good so far.

    There are a few odd comments made by the journalist in this piece for tonight's show.

    “As midnight approaches on New Year's Eve, there is a good chance that many viewers of BBC One will not be entirely sure who this person is that they are watching in concert and will type "Years & Years" or "Olly Alexander" into internet search engines.”

    Yikes.

  8. Very obscure choice for the BBC New Years thing. I get he’s had a big year with acting but music wise he’s practically unrecognisable. Also, Eurovision.

  10. I'm really enjoying the New Year's concert. For some reason it never occurred to me that they'd do A Second To Midnight...just before midnight.

    Also not Dreamland getting an unexpected showing.

  11. Really enjoyed the New Years Eve show. Good representation of back catalogue and good coverage for the new album. Highlight of the campaign so far.

  12. Well looking at Kworb, the show did wonders for... King, Shine and If You're Over Me in the UK ddd.
     
  13. Caught up with the show this morning because I’m an old man who slept through New Year…

    I thought Olly was great, he’s really stepped up as a performer this time round and the performance with Kylie was euphoric.

    I hope Sweet Talker gets a real boost now the Christmas songs are falling, it’s a bop.

    He was.....fine, but the level of quality from the hits to his newest stuff was very apparent.
     
  15. I thought the whole thing was fantastic. His songs were great and I loved his rendition of Toxic.
