Immediate thought was that the title is a reference to Kool and the Gang. So excited for this album!

That Diana Ross / Andy Warhol homage too! wub.gif

I am beyond unpleasured by the exclusion of "Overtime", the best upbeat song of her career to date! Looking forward to this nevertheless.

Maybe it just wouldn't fit in there even if it is upbeat.

She looks stunning on the cover.

I assumed that was more to the fact there wasn't an album formed at that point, like it was in its early stages and 'Overtime' was ready. The three singles released all compliment each other well so I don't buy 'Overtime' not fitting the sound of the finished album.

Jessie really can do no wrong this era. She has the catchiest beats, I love when it kicks in with the first verse. The strings, the melody of the chorus, the licks of disco - it's really beautiful and sensual yet makes you want to bop at the same time. I love how the production gradually builds, you don't even notice it creeping up then suddenly you realise the intensity.

This is utterly smooth and sublime, 80s and 90s disco mixed into one. wub.gif

I honestly can't wait for the new album!

Edit: the last bit of the video is a traditional Serbian wedding.

It's a shame, but I'm not surprised. There was such a huge gap between that and 'Adore You' that it felt completely seperate from the rest of the era.

"Overtime" was released early October 2018 and "Adore You" mid February 2019 so pretty standard gap between singles really (about 4 months). "Mirage" wasn't out until early November 2019 - she could've gotten pregnant and had a baby between "Adore You" and that! biggrin.gif

It's an era now anyway where we can just tack it on at the end of the album if we want. I very rarely tend to listen to the deluxe version of an album but this could be an exception (it'd surely be on a deluxe edition).

"Spotlight" itself is glorious, gets better on each listen, a return to the A* grade of "Overtime" and "Adore You" (I'd give "Mirage" a B).

Very much looking forward to this but would also like to echo the "where the feck's Overtime?" comments.

I can't believe you guys haven't commented on the gorgeous video. mellow.gif

You can always Overtime when the album is out on Spotify.

I hadn't cared for anything post-Devotion (she fell too far into MOR territory) but everything from this album has been fantastic and the perfect sound for her.

I'm obsessed with the popping synth effect towards the end of the song.

Love the album cover, getting a nice Donna Summer vibe. wub.gif
