According to Linda on Facebook,  she got told off for unveiling this earlier than the record company.  I don't suppose any fans are worried about that.

It was actually the record company that leaked it (on their website) which Linda then linked to.  But it's out there now so I don't think anything can be done about it.  I mean it's out as a pre-order on Amazon...

Anyway, I best we just need to look away until it is properly relaunched at some future point to no doubt somewhat stilted surprise and delight Wink

I see. Oh well, something to look forward to anyway. As I commented, the cover art alone makes it interesting.

Not released until June 21, though, so I'm limiting my excitement.

They get Zak's name wrong...there's a few lazy falsehoods thrown in along the way (of which Petridis really should know better) but overall I think Linda's personality still shines through.  I have to admit to thinking the one track I've heard so far (Kami singing) was lyrically weak.

I must admit I'm already tiring of hearing about this album. It's not even released until June 1. Wake me up on May 30.

And I *like* Linda Thompson's music.
