According to Mike on stage at the Frankfurt show last night (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYeYtUugDl4), January is the expected release time.

He says it around the 21 minute mark, after Silent Running.

I can't wait until something official comes out.

January came and went. Hopefully Alan Hewitt may have an update at some point.

Some sites are reporting April 7 (Team Rock, for example), but nothing official official has come out yet smiley

So, I take it that the release date is still all up to speculation.

Maybe when you're older and you're thinking back, you might recall.

This new album seems more focused than the previous one.
The title track, while well conceived, still don't do much to me. Plastic soul man, plastic soul.
The rest of the album alternates better ones and worse ones.
Among the best ones there are surely Are You Ready, Save The World, Wonder, Don't Know What Came Over Me, The Letter.
Some 20 years ago Are You Ready could have been a hit single.
A few songs are less convincing: The Best Is Yet to Come, High Life, Not Out of Love, Save My Soul go along without being noticed.
It's not a casuality that the most interesting songs are the ones co-written by Clark Datchler. He is a great composer, and also a great singer on his own; he could (should?) have well taken all the vocal duties on this record with incredible results.
Some songs are a strange crossover between Mike + The Mechanics and the current Johnny Hates Jazz (Wonder, Save The World, Don't Know What Came Over Me, The Best Is Yet to Come), some others seem to follow the path undertaken with The Road (High Life, Not Out of Love, Let Me Fly, Love Left Over, Save My Soul), some others remind of the Rewired era (I'll Be There For You and Are You Ready) and one song (The Letter) still retains some distant prog-rock features which can accost it to a mix of Genesis' Abacab era and Mike + The Mechanics debut album.

All in all a solid attempt. I'd rate the album 7/10. Not bad in these times.
Best tracks: Are You Ready and Don't Know What Came Over Me
