    Woohoo, backing vocals by Rufus Wainwright – I’ll be buying this!

    Slightly disappointed this is the 2nd single off ‘Super’. Great song, but not what I call single material, if you ask me. The video was interesting, but also a disappointment when you consider it’s the 2nd single off a great club-dance oriented album. There are better suited tracks on here that would make great singles with remixes. I hope the remix of Twenty-Something is good. And let’s hope the bonus tracks are amazing. Otherwise the momentum will start to fall flat right after ‘The Pop Kids’ had been released.

    • Justin says:

      I disagree. ‘The Pop Kids’ is one of the most disappointing tracks from the album IMHO. Perhaps the first single didn’t get the attention that they wanted, so decided to go with a track that is more ‘classic’ PSB sounding.
      I love some of the club tracks (‘Inner Sanctum’ etc) but welcome the choice of this track as a single.

  3. Soren says:

    This time PSB is not so generous with remixes

  4. memoryboy says:

    I should add that the video for ‘Twenty-Something” is quite depressing. Have any of you seen it? I appreciate the message it conveys. But it’s very unexpected. It’s actually a good video. But it’s not very uplifting to be honest. And it does not fit the vibe of the music. It’s very film-like. Dramatic. But the content is pretty serious and doesn’t fit the song if you ask me. Kinda reminds me of what Depeche Mode did for the video for their single ‘Peace’ back in 2009. Same serious film-like type of video that seemed to not fit the song very well in my opinion. I hope the 3rd single gets us back on track towards celebrating this great album that ‘Super’ really is: fun, club-friendly, dance-oriented pop music at it;s best. I really love this album.

  5. Gary Hunter says:

    I also thought “The Pop Kids” was awful, far better tracks on the album, that said I love “Twenty Something” and i am glad they are releasing it as a single. “Undertow” is muted as the 3rd single……it should have been the first single.

    £7 for a 4 track CD seems very steep.

  6. colin says:

    Over £7 for a 4 track cd single is ridiculous! Happiness should be the next single! I would by all formats of that. Please let is happen world of Tennant/Lowe!

  7. probablyrustin says:

    Not an album highlight for me, but does show a different sound off at least. Undertow should definitely be next!

  8. fred says:

    Classic PSB’s song ! Perfect hit for this summer … If only

  9. Kiki says:

    I’ml so ashamed that the F***king Download has got one more remix than the physical format…
    Anyway, I’ll buy the physcial CD rather than air…

  10. negative1 says:

    not a very good choice for a single. although this album is lacking quality songs to choose from.

  11. fredpostman says:

    Thanks for the info and thanks to the Boys for still releasing physical product.

  12. -sg- says:

    Watching this, I felt The video could be seen as the followup to Suburbia, indeed, the true full horror, The “slums of the future.” Granted, the little kids in suburbia would not exactly be twenty-something anymore, but close.

  13. mike says:

    I dont get this song and i love the psb, lacking in wit humour and melody for me. Happiness was more obvious single!

  14. memoryboy says:

    Wasn’t ‘Happiness’ already released as an “Album Teaser” single? Before ‘The Pop Kids’ came out? It’s because of that reason I doubt ‘Happiness’ would be released as a single again with remixes. I love the song tho and it’s a great opener for the album. Never saw it as a single tho, unless they added extra lyrics. Though I could be wrong. ‘Happiness’ already feels like a remix to me to be honest. But anyways, back on topic yeah, ‘Twenty-Something’ is a strange pick for a single. Not to say I don’t like the song, it’s just that I see ‘Undertow’ or “Groovy” or “Burn” as the next single. Or even “Say It To Me” would be a great single.

  15. HS says:

    Thrilled as always that PSB are still releasing CD singles. Hope there will be a 12″ as well.

    I think “Say It To Me” would probably be the best choice for a third single (or possibly “Burn”).

  16. probablyrustin says:

    Say It To Me and Burn are good, but I’d rather see Undertow (or even Groovy) as they’re standouts but not really on the same level IMO. Happiness was a teaser single just like Axis was – not enough in the way of lyrics or content to be a normal “pop” single release. It’d be a strange choice.

  17. Andreas says:

    Well, if they didn’t manage a pop cross over hit with the excellent ‘Thursday’ off the last album, don’t think they’ll have success with anything off this mediocre album.

  18. Gary Hunter says:

    “Happiness” is one of the worst PSB tracks ever………file next to “Shouting In The Evening”!

  19. mike says:

    Agreed that if Thursday wasnt a hit, nothing will be.

    The only good side of the Queen Night at the Odeon Amazon issue was adding this gave me free delivery for the PSB single, which i assume they will honour!!!

  20. Rob Iles says:

    Very interesting debate here on differing opinions to good/bad tracks which goes to show how person A dislikes a track, but person B thinks it is the best on the album.

    This proves to me that PSB are doing a great job catering for all. Not everyone is going to love every track, but as long as every track is getting love from someone – then it works.

    And this is exactly why PSB have been a huge success since the 1980’s!

    Full props again for releasing physical media. I’ve pre ordered this CD and will buy the vinyl if/when released (hopefully white again?).

  21. Rob Iles says:

    Also to add – I have just purchased from their website a couple of CD’s ….. and they are offering a free ‘SUPER’ tote bag for all orders over £10.00
    I ordered Winner CD single and Very CD Album and qualified for the free tote bag ….. postage was £3.95 in UK

    Digital Track List for ‘Twenty Something’

    5. Twenty-something (Kornél Kovács Remix)

  22. David V. says:

    This is a great song. I don’t get why so many don’t like it. It’s a different sound (Reggaeton) for them, but it is easily recognizable as PSB.

  23. Koen Kroeze says:

    Got my copy recently…

    Who on earth has come up with this fantastic, great, oustanding idea to make the sleeve a little bit bigger compared to The Pop Kids?!?!? Grrr…

    If you put them next to each other you’ll see the titles are at the same spot… so somehow somewhere in the process there are a few mm’s more artwork on the top and down of the sleeve. I really hope they will re-print this cd-maxi in the same sized artwork as The Pop Kids.

    And let’s hope the next cd-maxis will have a proper size again, which I can put next to the other CD’s…this one is too big and won’t fit.

  24. Jason Newton says:

    Hope ‘Say It To Me’ is the next and maybe final single. Probably the best thing on the album.
