I think this might be it at Amazon Japan. You can't see the CD description in English, but you can click the link at the right to view some of the page details in English.

Oh, ick, when you go through the checkout process, they use International Express, and shipping will be almost as much as the CD, making it almost $50 for me. Well, back to square one, then.

IE has a translate with Bing function that will detect and then translate the page into your desired language.

The Japan store charges 2600yen for the cd plus 2700yen for shipping anywhere in Europe so the cd would cost - goes to convert currency - £33.63! For 2 extra songs!? No chance.

And why does Japan always get the best version?

Just for the heck of it, I looked into the French version since it has 3 of the 4 bonus tracks. With shipping, it looks like that would cost me over $30. I wish they'd at least make the bonus tracks available on iTunes, but of course they want you to buy the entire album each time.

I'd almost forgotten about this place - CD Japan has more options for shipping, and they have a shipping calculator on the right-hand side.

CDJapan is way better than Amazon Japan but paying £18.88 is still too high, especially when you'll be able to buy the standard cd for £8/9 and the 2 bonus tracks for £1 each at the most.

And they say don't go torrent, support your favourite artists.

 

How about to please everyone the cd single that's coming out includes the not included bonus tracks for the US and UK and alter one to suit France. Means the fans can get everything thru buying the deluxe and single without much trouble.

^^ I agree, but that's a question I have: do they make the bonus tracks available on iTunes without buying an entire album?

So to get the lot you have to import from Japan? Fantastic. Not that its in anyway a surprise as Japan gets a lot of extras (as mentioned somewhere on this forum before).

Anyone know how much it would cost to import? Paying a couple of quid is fine but not if its a whole lot more for a couple of songs that will be on youtube soon after.

Really annoying.  I remember Neil Young once had a 4 song release that was only available as a vinyl in Australia and a CD in Japan (El Dorado).  For some time it cost crazy amounts of money; my copy was a sealed Japanese CD from a dealer in Germany - go figure.

I really wish they would stop all this marketing BS and just let us buy a shiny CD with all the tracks on it.

Argh, The Examiner is reporting on an "exclusive" Best Buy version. Dare we hope it contains all the bonus tracks (no, we don't)?

Think I'll get the local printer to make me up an exclusive one too and drive everyone really nuts.

This all just gets sillier by the hour.

Well, the Best Buy version of WOA had the bonus disc not available anywhere else (that's the one I bought!) so looks like that's the place to get New. Sucks, because I hate buying CDs anywhere other than my local indie record shop (unless I have to order via Amazon).

On Paul's website it has this different artwork show for the new album:

AlbumCover_Small.jpgImage Enlarger

But for a good few weeks now Paul has been using this black and white version we are used to:

NEWImage Enlarger

So what one do you thing it will be, personally I prefer the black and white one. Its go more impact and looks bolder.

What do you guys think? ahdn_paul_01

Top one looks dated in my opinion, makes me think of the 80's and rubbish discos.
