The long-awaited song, "I didn't get where I am today", will be released as a bonus track on the next PSB single, "Flamboyant". Originally included on the "Release" album, the track was removed by Chris and Neil because they didn't feel it fitted with the mood of the album. It was, however, later considered for release as a single. The track features a sample from an obscure mid-sixties pop record. "Father's name was Dad" by Fire, along with guitars played by Johnny Marr and percussion by Jodie Linscott. It is described by Chris as "very jangly pop". The "Flamboyant" single will be released at the end of March but meanwhile you can read the lyrics of "I didn't get where I am today" in the LYRICS section.
