Jonny was on the official message board this morning. Jonny commented on the album leak: “Colin called and said it was up, so thought I’d check I feel bemused, though, not annoyed….I’m glad people like it, most of all. It’s a *little* earlier than we’d expected, but there it is. There there it is ! hahahahaha (..) Surprised, and still not used to it happening, even after all these years….. I worry more that stuff we do *won’t* get released for whatever obscure reason, and I hate the 3 month gap between finish and release. But not enough to leak it myself !
When asked if he was downloading his own music. Jonny said:”‘It is isn’t it ? mean, I *think* it’s partly mine, but who knows ? I just wanted to check it was really us.” Jonny couldn’t say if they were the mastered tracks: “Don’t know yet – I’ve only downloaded I Will and it’s hard to tell. I guess we’ll find out today. Well it sounds OK on my iBook speakers…Haven’t tried it on headphones… Are there any cross fades ?”
When someone suggested it was Ed who leaked it, Jonny commented: “that explains the shades, then. And the frequesnt ‘Holidays’. Hmmmm.”
Jonny said he wasn’t angry about about the leak: Well, you know…… hence the title, really. Not sure where all that George Bush stuff came from…. Heard it, have we? (..) Well Hail is no insult, really…We just like the contradictory phrases like 2+2=5 and Hail to the Thief and all that. We’re not angry really….shame it’s not a package with the artwork and all, but there you go.
I’ve got to go. I fell like I’m fishing for praise here…glad you like it. I hope the title makes sense now you’ve heard the music. I’d better go. Love to all thieves amongst you, see you on tour (more dates coming, oh yes, even maybe in HOMER’s new home…..)”.
