Instead, all it really does is make it sound like shit, and then, because this is the Internet in the 21st Century, someone else just posts the full quality track anyway.

Please just listen to this one:
Don't listen to that one either.

It was just added to Spotify.

Edit: Now having finally heard the full 8 minute track in high quality I can say this track is definitely growing on me. A lot of new details are shining through.

As with anything with this band, it doesn't matter what I think now, I will love and binge on it in ten years time.

Re: "I Exhale" - first single from Shining Future
Will there be a single release with remixes of I Exhale?

I still think the length of BBWFASF signposts a more direct approach, i.e. a shorter record every 18 months or so rather than a longer one every few years. Given Karl's enthusiasm towards the creative process this seems to make sense - putting stuff out while it's new and exciting, rather than working on it endlessly. This quote obviously backs that up somewhat.

Re: "I Exhale" - first single from Shining Future
This is a pretty boring song and not even as good as the songs UW gave away for free or relegated to digital only (RiverRun). The reviewers at FACT were certainly not impressed.

http://www.factmag.com/2016/01/25/fa...ld-four-tet/3/

Chris Kelly: Just in time for the Trainspotting sequel, and also about a decade overdue. (2)

April Clare Welsh: It took a few listens before this half-clicked for me. I think it’s probably a case of Underworld doing what they do best – stitching together a patchwork of ideas (a rowdy football chant here, some deadpan poeticisms there), but it still kind of sounds like Sleaford Mods doing the Fall doing Underworld. (6)

Tayyab Amin: This sounds like a formative, even climactic excerpt from a Danny Boyle film about League Two football. The spoken word veers from the meagre inspiration of football manager pep talk realism to pretty much every time I’ve been to a pub sober and had to listen to a mildly drunken, forever-unraveling non-ecdote. (5)

Son Raw: There was a venue in my hometown called Underworld that used to specialize in skate punk and indie hip-hop. It really aimed to become a home for the kind of commodified misfit-by-choice demo that no one really much has time for these days. It closed down last year and the club that took its place books bass house and arty trap.

What I’m trying to say is I don’t know why this still exists. (4)

Daniel Montesinos-Donaghy: This doesn’t make for a bad stomp about, with Karl Hyde doing a Mark E Smith ramble over pleasing swirls of distortion and #LadsOnTour backing vocals, but the song fades into the memory the second it ends. Three minutes and not a hook to grab onto. (6)

From the promo text accompanying the original mix:

"An incredible remix by none other than DJ Koze is coming imminently..."

I hope there won't be just 1 remix, but a whole remix package!

+1 for the DJ Koze remix. That's the best name i've seen attached to an UW remix since Marshall Watson.

Best 'first single' since Push Upstairs, imo...

Re: "I Exhale" - first single from Shining Future
push had a hook, a progression, transitions, more than three interesting sounds, etc.
