About this deal

Though the band had planned to use a different producer for the main sessions, [3] Eno and guitarist/violinist Saul Davies were enlisted to produce most of the recordings.

They had written over 30 tracks for inclusion on their next record; on the opening night, the band played seven of these new songs. Playlouder's Sarah Bee considered it a "more low-key" affair that was "less brash" than Millionaires.The UK special edition included the bonus songs "Gaudi" and "What Is It Good For" as 9th and 10th tracks. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single in late June, followed a week later by Pleased to Meet You on 2 July through Mercury Records. The Shining", "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" and "Alaskan Pipeline" were engineered by James Loughrey.

Andrew Paine of NME considered it the "best James record in a long while and there are some near-inspirational moments. English Beefcake" stars a man who ends relationships, while being hesitant in causing pain as a result of them.Most of the finished album was made up from live takes and demos that were made before recording with Eno.

Eno likened the process to when artists make their debut record: "they're full of enthusiasm and excitement and they know what they're doing and it's a pleasure. It was originally titled We Want Our Money Back, [5] before being re-titled Space, [15] and eventually Pleased to Meet You. with Jools Holland later that day, [29] and performed "Falling Down" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)". Fine" is a percussion-led song that is followed by "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)", a slow-building indie rock track with a psychedelic bridge section.He’s been christened James, obviously, and will appear on the sleeve of the forthcoming album, Pleased To Meet You. Throughout July and September, the band performed at the T in the Park, Guildford Live, City in the Park, [30] Witnness, [35] Benicàssim, and Annual Youth Music festivals, across the UK, Spain and Portugal. Booth said the album was the first since their fifth studio album Laid (1993) that they had strayed from the Verse-chorus-verse structure. Scratchcard" and "I Thought You Were", outtakes from the album's sessions, were included on the career-spanning box set The Gathering Sound (2012), alongside the music video for "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)". Space" begins as a Radiohead-esque track with an electro intro before shifting into chorus sections in the vein of Simple Minds.

Senorita" is about a guy that falls in love with a dangerous woman, and is followed by the disco song "Gaudi". Inspired by playing the new songs live, the band decided to gather in a circle and record live-in-the-studio [8] at Ridge Farm Studios in Capel, Surrey with engineer Gary Langan. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 65, based on six reviews. Ben Folds was initially scheduled to support the band for their UK stint, but was replaced by Turin Brakes.

In a review for The Guardian, Caroline Sullivan wrote that the band "continue their run of mini-symphonies by and for men who don't cringe at terms such as 'birthing partner'. On 6 September, the band announced their departure from Mercury [36] after completing their six-album contract, though they planned to release a compilation and reissue their back catalogue in the future through the label. On 31 May, Pleased to Meet You was announced for release in July, and the track listing was revealed. He added that the album had an underlying theme of distaste for "habits, addictions, [and] impulses that we can't control.
