running with the owl

Are you ready for a dreamy, breezy summer tune for those hazy, lazy days at the beach? Get the margarita machine ready.

Chicane, the nom de plume of the enigmatic Nick Bracegirdle, returns with Adam Young, the mayor of Owl City, for "Middledistancerunner". The single is from Chicane's forthcoming longplayer, "Giants". Here's a little preview.

In fact, this album has had a longer gestation period than Sophie Ellis-Bextor's long anticipated elpee. After three singles including "Come Back", "Hiding All The Stars" and the top 10 hit, "Poppiholla", the album still remains unreleased.

"Poppiholla" was even tacked on to the end of "The Best Of Chicane: 1996 - 2008" a full year after the greatest hits collection was released.

Pull your finger out, Nick!

  1. Very nice, and more what I'd hope for from Chicane. The 3 previous singles were catchy, but too dependent on samples or well-known melodies.
