I personally am very excited about this. I knew it would find its way to a label eventually. I am also glad we can get WPINOYB back as an actual release.

So there you have it folks.

Come on UK….
:highfive: Great news !!!
Don’t quite understand how it can be global ex UK, unless deliberate to make a point
Wake me up! This cannot be true! :guitar:

Capitol has been behind Harvest (World Peace Album Desaster). So the new label is a big surprise, isn‘t ist?

M’s not settling for no small off shoot labels.

He wants the best he gets the best.

Capitol is distributed by UMG, so why on earth it can’t be managed through a UK subsidiary is beyond comprehension. Me thinks they want a bigger slice of the pie
When were these pictures taken?
He looks great . Also , when is the actual date?
Its pathetic not to release in UK, just means when it is released, it will be almost pointless
As most will have from USA
bonfire of teenagers
