Looks like the official Youtube/Vevo released this earlier today.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp6oQmSvGC4&spfreload=10

Kind of figures they'd take the only "more modern", dance track from the album and make it single. 

I kind of like it although I'm sure there will be plenty of mixed feelings that could possibly conjure up the thought, "Did Landy come back from the grave"?

I think "Smart Girls" would've been better.

"Landy" has never been gone. He was there before Landy and he is there now.

- figure it out

Nice tune.

If you want to hear 1960s Brian you can always listen to an album or song he made during that decade.

I am certainly impressed by Brian and Co...,
                                                                 &...  Wouldn't be surprised if others ( and I am thinking Sade especially - via Paul Von  Mertens) cover it. 
                           
                   That's Right! I agree with Honored Guest - if you want Sixties Brian there is plenty. I am simply very happy that he is making music on his own terms/ is a survivor/ and can say he feels proud / that is what I want to hear.  
                    That He Will be discovered by a new audience (as always) on completely or subtly different merits?!  
My sense of it is that he is rounding out his musical ideals and updating his interpretation of what we call the popular song. &[smile][idea] ALWAYS experimenting somehow.

 I`v been a fan for 40 years  and am very happy to see via this performance that he has the artistic wherewithal to change it up. Good Timin'  Brian ! "Props- Bro" ,  This music it has a healing vibe to it...
                               
 I say keep having those wheatgrass shooters and flourless chocolate cakes!

                                                                                                                  Have a Cool and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Nothing to figure out here (let alone Dr. Landy). Just watched the videos. What we are having from Brian & friends is simply good music. His melodies and harmonies, updated.

When I heard it had a dance beat, I was expected much worse.  

It probably won't be a track that I gravitate towards when the album is released, but not bad.

Oh dear .....

In my honest opinion, this track sounds very dated.
Luckily, I have a Skip button for when the album comes out.
Certainly not up to the standard of other tracks that I have heard so far.....

Seems this album will be polarising. Good. I love polarising albums (Smiley, Love You).
All the world seems to love "The Dark Side of the Moon". To me it's the worst thing the Pink ever made, just thinking of "The Great Gig in the Sky" is enough to make me cringe. Love Animals instead.

Thorgil,

Darkside worse than More or Ummagumma?  

Animals is one of my favorites too.  To me, that one is just behind Wish You Were Here.  I'm also a huge fan of The Final Cut.

Yes, I like Ummagumma (polarising!) and More (not bad for a soundtrack) more than Dark Side, the megahit acclaimed by everybody at the cost of ceasing to be the unique Pink and turning into a standard-ish if brilliant pop group. In Dark Side, they embraced the formula, and of course Money came, a lot of it. [smile]

Sorry for derailing. I like the "cheesy" sax in Runaway Dancer. It works in that context, and Paul Mertens is great.

Just curious, thorgil as I celebrate the Floyd's entire catalog.  I like the live disc of Ummagumma.  For the studio songs, I've heard live versions of "Granchester Meadows" and "The Narrow Way" that far outside the studio tracks (likely because the whole band is featured on the live versions).  

I really like half of More also, but there's some obvious soundtrack filler.  I'm hoping if David Gilmour tours the states (not holding my breath), he puts "Cymbaline" in the set.  

As for Brian, looking forward to the new stuff.  I'm not a big fan of modern pop, but I did kinda like that Capitol Cities song "Safe and Sound" from a couple summers ago.

   I actually like Runaway Dancer more than I thought I would.   Sure it's not the Brian sound that we're used to but it's still a pretty catchy tune with nice vocals.   I have a feeling there is going to be a variety of music styles on No Pier Pressure.  But for those who are looking more for Beach Boys styled songs I think they'll be there with the songs that feature Brian and Al on lead.
