I’m not referring the Yes, the new album (out this week, get it), which is delightful, but the Best Thing Ever is a track on the album called The Way It Used To Be‘ or ‘The way it used to be’ if you are a PSB punctuation pedant.
It’s low key, grown-up, sophisticated, crammed with hooks and is a co-write/produce with Xenomania. According to the commentary, they imagined it as a duet with Tina Turner no less.
Unfortunately, I’ve just read the lyrics and am most disappointed to learn that Neil sings ‘I was there caught on Tenth Avenue’ not ‘I was there, cow-tipping, and you…’ Check it out at 2:50. Oh well.
