That song is ‘Hang me out to Dry’ and it sounds nothing like ‘It’s never over’

In the style of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska

Not at all. And it’s phenomenal. The three most likely scenarios are that it was leaked by him, someone from xl, or an outside source. And don’t bother with any fan made remixes or mixes, the way it was released is perfect, with some great interludes in between the songs.

The unofficial #1 is Jai Paul’s leaked debut….. By a mile

Hannah Hunt (especially the last minute and chorus) is probably the best songwriting they’ve ever done. Rostam’s production is off the charts again. We got a taste with “Diane Young” but what these guys are doing in the studio is really magical. Most of it unfortunately doesn’t translate to live performances well, but the recording aspect reminds me of Revolver-Beatles Era creativity. “Everlasting Arms” is pretty much pop perfection. I can’t provide much criticism, besides maybe I’m not exactly into the “Finger Back” and “Worship You” combo, and the chipmunk vocals on “Ya Hey”. But, the album is still pretty great front to back. These guys are a well tuned pop music machine right now.

This is my least favorite song in their entire catalog :(

I wish they would have done one for Unbelievers instead.
