"Wow!!! We have been completely overwhelmed by the number of pre-orders of the digisleeve single Cool As You. In less than 24 hours the limited edition is almost SOLD OUT. There are a few extra copies left (click on the link below). Btw, the boxes with CDs are still at the pressing company and we are expecting to receive them at the end of the next week. So we will start with the shipping on 14th April. Thank you so much for your support. We have to say you are pretty crazy, and amazing:)"

Then yeah, 300. Maybe 350 at best. :devil:

I don't buy the boxes at pressing company* excuse though. I mean, 300 singles (even 500) would fit on just a few small boxes that could be delivered in a few minutes. There's no need to wait 2 weeks for sending them. They obviously haven't produced them yet and I bet they will only produce as much as ordered –once orders decrease– and claim it was "sold out".

*Well, I do believe the boxes are there, but empty. :angel:

I was in two minds about whether to order a copy or not... I don't particularly like the song, and it's expensive for a CD single (£7.75... that's almost the cost of an album in the UK). However, rather predictably, I've just ordered a copy. It supposedly being almost sold out prompted me to do that now.

*Sigh* at my lack of willpower! I don't think I'd have been too happy to have a gap in my collection though.

I really do miss the days of £1.99 - £3.99 priced CD singles!

I used to work for a production company who produced CDs, and the industry minimum (in the UK anyway) for CD printing was 500 - they could do less but it was the same price (as you're paying to set up the presses/whatever) and one box fits 100 CDs easy.

Glad i ordered mine :) although they may be lying to get the rest of the people to order #tactics :despise:

Well at this point it's more about supporting our girl, even if all the sales money goes to Peter.

Even though the CD is a bit expensive with shipping, I honestly spend more on other crap in my life. Whenever I go out for say, sushi or steak, I usually pay more. So really it's not too crazy.

Peter probably has to pack up all the sales himself, so that's why it's gonna take 2 weeks to ship out lol

No. It's a longer version, mainly instrumental stuff.

Did anybody who purchased the physical CD notice that that your purchase includes a download as well? I thought you could download the CD before you received it, but it looks like it includes the digital EP instead of the physical CD tracklisting. I wish I had known that before I purchased the digital EP separately, but oh well, get them coins, Peter.

If you have a Bandcamp account (they're free), it should be under your collections tab. Even if you didn't have one before, you can sign up for one and it should be there. I forgot to log-in to my account and it was still there. Let me know if you have any issues.

Oh, I see, thanks! I read somewhere that the 4th track on the CD is his solo version so I wanted to know if that was included on the digital release as well.

I never said that I don´t like the song. The word all suggests that everyone who bought the song dislikes the song, and that´s something that isn´t true.

me too - I just ordered 3 copies of the CD single and it was $35.17 USD, including shipping to the US....after the PayPal screen, there's an option to download, with a small arrow you can use to select mp3 or FLAC or whatever
