Check out a message from Chas about the single and his forthcoming album over at his Tumblr thingy / below.

“Hello. Welcome to my first blog.

So first of all i just wanted to say how all the support has been over the past week. Its almost “forced” me to get back in touch with some really old friends and its turned out to be something i should have done a long time ago.

Ok so I thought i would just explain why i am releasing a single. I have come to the conclusion that there isn’t to much i can do in this life that im ok at.

Since my band Lightyear split up quite some years ago i have been busy tour managing and trying to bumble through life by whatever means i can.

But i think that i have realised that as hard as it may be, and as much as i have tried to find a career, i am a musician. And not a very good one.

So, im going to give it a bash. Im dedicating this year to music and will be releasing my first solo album at the end of the year. I just want to make something really ruddy good, and to think it’s the best i could have done. So if you like the song it would be great if you could purchase it as a show of support. I have a feeling of selling out doing this but fuck it. Everybody has to work. And i want my work to be what i love. Im getting pretty old now. But it’s a great feeling that one way or another I’ve accepted what i want to do. And to the people who have given me bits and pieces of support recently, and encouraged me too do this: You are wonderful.

Thankyou if you made it down this far. Here is a link to my single.”
