A teaser

The Distractions' new album will be with us in 2012 (along with the eagerly anticipated compilation - more on that soon).  In the meantime, there may be a taster in the form of some acoustic versions of album tracks.


"Girl of the Year"

A pop song in that great tradition, a song about you-know-what.  Louise, Valerie, Josephine, Nicole, or are The Distractions Waiting for Lorraine?  


"Too Late To Change"

A darker, more folksy number with driving rhythms from The Only One's drummer, Mike Kellie.


"Wise"

Destined to be a Distractions classic, this is a tear-jerker in the vein of Looking For A Ghost and Black Velvet.  Except this time it's written by part-time Distraction, Nick Halliwell, and the lyric includes a cameo from plucker Perrin to complement his friend Finnney's glorious lead.
