What the fuck is he doing? How does a talented, and intelligent person like William Beckett put out shit like this? I met him backstage at the Honda Civic Tour some years ago and was really impressed by him. This is disappointing and he can and should do better. Come on man! The first two Academy Is... records were awesome.

Really enjoying this song. People need to stop clinging onto albums he made 7/8 years ago and just take this new direction for what it is.

Looking forward to the album. Sound like it'll be a great soundtrack to the last few weeks of summer.

I honestly have a hard time getting into The Academy Is... stuff. Other than a few songs, they aren't really anything that special in my opinion. I love his solo stuff though. Every EP he released last year was great, and I think this will be a great album. I've had it pre-ordered since pre-orders came up in America too. I'm excited for the album. And I like Benny & Joon. But seriously, you don't build an opinion on an album or guy based on the lead single. It's simply an introduction, there will be better songs on the album. (watch the behind the scenes videos he's posted for snippets.)

What's even more important is that the UK release has 2 bonus tracks!

Now watch every American in the thread bitch and moan about this, even though they get Best Buy/Target/Walmart bonus track on every fucking major release...

Check out "Fast Times at Barrington High" album by The Academy Is... my favorite album by them. Solid pop rock that's catchhy and fun. Their first two album seems to be what everyone loves but in my opinion I don't like a single song from those albums. Fast times I liked 90 percent of the songs. Definetly give that one a chance if you ever listen to TAI again.

Also interested in the new William Beckett album.

Well, I've listened to all 3 albums all the way through. I like certain songs from the albums, just can't see it as a listen to the whole album thing for me.
