This is so cool. Leave it to Leonard to slyly announce a highly anticipated album. Badass. Perfect title, as expected.

I really hope we get 'previews' of the songs as per Old Ideas.
I knew the album so well - long before I received it.
:D

Really hoping that Feels So Good makes the cut.

Leonard 'released' them - one by one - over the internet - - as teasers for the new album - before the whole album was available.
:o)

When we were finally able to purchase Old Ideas - all of the songs were old friends.

I must admit i wasn't aware of the ' old ideas previews'.
There is something to be said for waiting for the whole album .Often the sum is greater than the parts
Leonard's work resonates

This is good news. However, what I'd really like is a new studio album which uses the touring band properly. Darkness was the only track on Old Ideas to fully avail of their considerable talents and from talking to the Webbs this year, I don't think they have been involved in any recent session work with him so I suspect the band won't be on board unless of course they recorded more material than Darkness at that time which has been held back until now?
