New Texas single for your judgement

7 Digital is offering a limited-time download (Windows Media format) of the new Xenomania-produced Texas single Getaway, due out August 1. I like Texas – they've done some of the sweetest pop songs of the last 10 years, including Say What You Want, Inner Smile, Halo and Summer Son.

I've not decided whether this new one is ahhhh or meh; their last CD was, IMO, unlistenable. It IS very similar in style to Summer Son – sounds like Sharleen recorded it in the studio with sunglasses on. It was written with one of the members of the great 80's Scot band The Bluebells (who did Cath etc). Note that the album called Red Book, out on Halloween, includes a song called Sleep, written by Paul Buchanan of The Blue Nile.

Note: For the info you have to provide, just do a fake name and email, ignore the phone number part and type LA185HP for the post code.

It's good. Better than 'Carnival Girl' as the first single. i've heard snippets of the confirmed 2nd & 3rd single off RebBook on the band's official and they excites me ALOT! so can't wait for the CD!
