5 euros for a 10-minute single that you can't stream in advance? Bit of a strange move; I do love the band when they're at their best but hesitant to pay that amount for one song

can't stream in advance

This is the most backwards way of releasing content, going back to the dark age gap of music in the early '90s after record stores removed their listening booths but before high speed downloading was a widespread option. It was like being held hostage as a fan. "Pay for the right to listen to our music" instead of "pay to support a band that makes music you enjoy" and then musicians stood around staring into the void when people immediately shifted into illegally obtaining their material once the tech became available.

"Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something."

This has now been uploaded on streaming platforms; the ludicrous price tag aside, it's an excellent song, clearly better than most of what was featured on Leaves For Yesteryear (the title track and re-recorded song being the only possible exceptions)

Second best for me after the title track of Leaves Of Yesteryear.

Good track, would have fit in nicely on Leaves. I'll just pretend it was in there so I can listen to that album as a more "full length" release. Now, where in the track list should I put it?
And the tears that we will weep today
Will all be washed away
By the tears that we will weep again tomorrow
