Q. Dear O! Can't wait for the release of Ghost Stories! I am so excited! My question is the following: How come the official track-listing reveals that Oceans lasts 5:21 but the performance yesterday at Radio 1 lasted approximately 3:50? Muchas GRACIAS!


The Oracle replies:

I love Oceans; it reminds me of Careful Where You Stand. I was going to say that radio prefer radio edits of songs and 4 minutes is a normal radio play length but in reality the remaining minute and a half of Oceans isn't another verse or anything so you heard pretty much the song.
