Kinda spooky that the painting's been bumped elsewhere in the last couple of days.

I suspected (based on some posts on Twitter and another forum) that it was going to be 'Egypt Station', but I wasn't sure.

What do people think is the opening of the new song? I've seen it transcribed -- and already covered! -- as "I saw your fragile smile" but I'm hearing "I saw you flash a smile".

I think you're right with "I saw you flash a smile".

Can't all this drip-feeding stop, any new announcement is made and then anyone who wants the album can go and buy/pre-order it? All this 67 clues with 74% of the information needed but 59% can be unscrambled in advance if you hold your left ear to the righthand side of the keyboard if it is facing south in a westerly breeze on a hazy day in June is a nonsense.

I'm not 8, and it's a new album not the unveiling of the answers to the mysteries of the Universe.

Feel free to ignore it, dear @meanmistermustard. Being somewhat closer to 8 than you are, I find it rather exciting. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I've made a new thread for the new album here:

Here's a feature on the album (this will change as more information emerges):

Toot toot! All aboard the hype train to the Egypt Station!

Why start a new thread?!!! This thread has all the build-up and was expected to have its title changed. That's what's been said all the way along, that we'll change the title when the title is confirmed. I wouldn't have bothered posting as much about the build-up over the last week if I knew it wasn't going to be the album thread. Waste of time as no-one's gonna be looking here from now on!
