I can confirm that Katie Melua's FIRST U.S. single will be "Twisted." Exciting. It's one of my favorites. It's already been sent to radio

Personally I would have preferred Plague of Love if they are going to promote Katie in that vein, but let's hope it does well...

I don't think Plague of Love would be a better choice, it's a pop song like a million others. Twisted has something slightly special and I think it has the higher hit potential.

I think, both songs have a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge hit potential. I reasently came back for a business trip th the USA, where I had the cance to hear also the radio. About half of the songs, played ther are in that style (but being not even 10% of Katie's quality). I think, she will get a lot of airplay

TA's probaby my fave track off the new album, that song reminds me of 1980's teen comedies.

Hurrah. Finally I predicted a single track from a Katie album. ;) Good choice for the US I think.

As mentioned, an interesting choice for the first single in the US. I would have thought it would be Tiny Alien. I presume she will be releasing The Flood and Tiny Alien as later singles anyway. I can't imagine her not doing.

And now imagine that "Twisted" becomes very, very, very popular in the US and suddenly Americans start to listen to Katie more than in Europe and she flees from us to the US :twisted:

Of course I wish Katie to be as much popular in the US as in Europe but I hope she, at a pinch, won't forget about EU.

Nice cover; fits the tune quite well. :approve:

I think we need Lepton to scour Ebay to confirm it's autheticity.
he's the expert in that area.

She would never do. Katie is very grateful and faithful.

I do hope, that she becomes veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery successful in the USA (for me it is only a question of time)

LOL, thanks for your confidence in me but just from seeing an ebay auction I cannot say anything about the authenticity. :joyjoy: But I think it's plausible that the item is genuine, promos exist even if there is no CD release. If the seller doesn't have much negative feedback (haven't seen the auction myself yet, thanks for the hint :twisted: ) I would trust him.

Seller has 100% (2050) positive feedback so I also think it's genuine. Also the price was very low so I gave it a try and bought it.
This was the auction

I'm afraid one has to show much more than the good voice to succeed in the US. She would have to become like Lady GaGa. Sad but true.

Anyway, fingers crossed :)

Plague of Love is a great little song - very tongue in cheek but Twisted is the better first single release. When Katie was on ABC earlier in the year she performed Twisted and the (stand in) guitarist was having a whale of a time singing along and the audience too.
