Yes, ‘On An Island’ hits the shops in the UK today and you all have to rush out and buy at least one copy if you aren’t waiting for the postman to deliver it.
But, above all, it’s David’s 60th birthday today, so let’s have your birthday greetings from around the world instead.
As hard as it is, if you could please refrain from commenting on the album until tomorrow, when fans in North America will also have heard it, tomorrow’s blog can be choc-a-block full of album-related opinions and thoughts.
As you know, David and Polly check up on us, so I think it would be fitting to show our thanks, appreciation and gratitude for the man who has given us such great music down the years, not least such a personal and meaningful new album this year.
I’ll leave it to you to send David your birthday greetings, however you deem fit.
Please keep them of a reasonable length, if you can. The more individual comments we have, and the easier it is for everyone to read through them all, the better.
Happy Birthday, David!
