Sarah Cracknell/St. Etienne: The journey continues...acoustic

This is leading to a very nice video, featuring Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne recording an accoustic version of "The journey continues".
Without the slightly tacky beats of the original version with Mark Brown, the song becomes actually very good. Even the capricous operatic singing, which I found too phantom-of-the-opera-esque are a nice touch here.

However, at the end Sarah gives some new info about the future of St. Etienne, the best pop-band in the known universe:
A new Richard X produced single "This is tomorrow" will come out this year. It will be tied with a further greatest hits album, which will be the follow-up to "Too young to die" from the mid-nineties. (I thought that "Smash the System/Travel Edition" was a greatest hits too, but anyway...).
Furthermore their old albums will be re-released in a re-mastered and re-packaged form. AND as if this was not enough, an all new album will probably come out in the "not too distant future".

Not bad at all...
