THE DIVINE COMEDY‘s new single ‘The Pop Singer’s Fear Of The Pollen Count’ is released on August 9, the first to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘A Secret History…The Best Of The Divine Comedy’, although the original was on the DC’s debut album ‘Liberation’.
The song is about Neil Hannon‘s lifelong battle with hayfever and comes on two CD formats and a cassette version.
CD 1 is backed with a cover of The Magnetic Fields song ‘With Whom To Dance’ and an acoustic version of ‘Eric The Gardener’.
CD2 has ‘This Side Of Paradise’ and a cover of Ride‘s ‘Vapour Trail’.
The cassette has a cover of Jaques Brel‘s ‘Jackie’.
