    Amanda played live here in Wales (in our tiny little town of Carmarthen!) last thursday - she mentioned there will be official Dresden Dolls news this coming Monday. She implied it will be UK live dates.

    Looks like it's London on October 30 and 31st (Halloween).

    I felt a bit wary about this when I saw the song title, but I like it:

    I’m not going to listen to anything AFP has to say about rape ever since she used her apology for defending Jian Ghomeshi as an opportunity to plug her book. :\

    Something feels kinda gross to me about her using his name for the title. It's clickbait. I probably wouldn't think so much of it if it had been another artist, but she just does shit like that over and over again.

    The problem with MWWSYN is that it's just a crap song. I'm low key dreading the new album.

    I agree that the song isn’t great. Hoping it’s not on the new album, which I still have hope for. Her proper studio albums have been great.

    Wow, really just a casual AP fan but I think the song is fantastic.

    It won’t be on the new album. She never puts old singles on new albums.

    The song is good (a bit too opaque and confusing), but I really like the video. I love that moment when the women start falling on the floor. The movement and staging throughout is sharp. And goddamn, could the timing on this be any more appropriate?
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    She’s actually said singles like The Ride and The Thing About Things will be on this album.

    As for the song, I don't really care. It's not a bad song but it's not my favorite song; I think its quality lies on the topic of the lyrics. But I'm also not a huge fan of Amanda's slow songs, so my opinion is not so relevant.
    The video, on the other hand, is great. I was kind of expecting Amanda NOT to be there, and instead of her there should be at least one of the victims of Weinstein in the last scene. But it's Amanda, so she was going to be there for sure.

    They are new recordings, however, which is something different than recording and releasing, say, "Good Day" from the self-titled EP and then slapping it on the full-length later. Though it was in the day of labels (for her), the Dolls did this a lot both with official live recordings and demos (aforementioned Dolls EP, most of both Virginias as officially hosted recordings, etc).
