BBC Radio 2 played DG's new single! Good choice

I imagine it's a different edit than the one on the album? It's pretty long to be a single, I would think. Such a powerful song, though. Magic.
You can listen back to the first play of this here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04hc7vp (it says it stay up for only about a week, I believe). It starts around the 2:05:41 mark and ends around the 2:09:12 mark so, yes, shorter than on the album. A lot of the instrumental part at the beginning is missing, for example.
I am thrilled this is the new single. Radio stations need to PLAY THIS!! (Please. )
A few things changed up. A little peppier, maybe? I don't know if it's just the broadcast quality that made the cymbals and drums more prominent. Doesn't quite have the heartbreaking quality of the album, but it's still great!
A great choice for a single. Such a powerful song.
Definitely a great choice for the new single. And the new mix is great! I hope this is released via download?!!?!?!
Wow it's been totally overhauled. Loads more delay on the vocals. Sounds like a new drum track, more bouncier and some different fills. Louder backing vocals. I like it

Yes it is a good choice for a single and was sure to be re-mixed for Radio.The album version is far better though.However,I have never really thought of Dave as a singles artist.The only one I can recall doing well in UK was The One I Love.
Hello! Has anyone heard this played again? I can only hear the 30sec sample on the BBC Music page. Not to sound like a grandad but singles aren't the same anymore without physical releases. Much easier knowing when a single was released!
It's a 3:33 version, tuned halfway up a half step like the Be Mine single mix. God, if only it were a remixed full version, you'd have a convert... it's got so much energy.
Chris Evans has just played BOTHA this morning, it was cut short mind.
it looks like it might get a bit of airplay though as it is on the bbc r2 playlist (B list)
Does anyone know if this will be released as a CD single rather than just a download ?
Ignore the last post .....stupid question .....just found out CD singles were being phased out 2 years ago .... That just shows how along ago I brought a new one !
