Hi everyone. Well, the dust is settling on a week of frenzied single promotion, and there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that we didn’t, alas, break the Top 40 with the single. I can’t pretend that isn’t a little disappointing, but there’s some serious silver lining here:
- The single came in at number 65. That’s well above the Last Shadow Puppets and other major label, physical format singles. We actually rose over 30 places in the chart through the week, which is pretty much unprecedented.
- We raised a ton of cash for Breast Cancer Campaign. Exact figures will take a little while to figure out, but I’ll let you know as soon as I do.
So yeah, thanks very much. The B-Sides should be winging their way to people who bought the single now, and I want to say at this point that all of us (Xtra Mile, BCC etc.) are hugely grateful to everyone who got involved. I think it’s really pushed things forward for me personally too (as evidenced by the sold out shows on the tour), so yeah, we win.
