Unless you are reading this on Saturday, which is totally fine because I’m writing it on a Thursday, let’s call the whole thing off. What I mean by the call the whole thing off is read until the very end of this email, where a special message awaits you, and then spread the word far and wide that you subscribe to The New Cue and The New Cue makes you feel really good about yourself. Take a breath. We are about to begin, this bit doesn’t really count, it’s known in the industry as a “pre-amble”.
Here begins the proper amble! Welcome to this week’s Recommender edition, where the one and only Joan As Police Woman picks a mind-blower for us, we get our Recommending gear on with a truckload of music picks for you to dive into and James Walsh tells us about the making of Starsailor’s breakthrough track. Here’s a playlist to listen along:
It’s for subscribers only, though, so if you’re not already in that elite crew and want to join us on the other side of the paywall, there are some buttons below to help save the day.
Enjoy the edition,
Ted, Niall and Chris
