Even the most out-of-it people have to know that “BMX Bandits Forever” is one of the best albums in Duglas T Stewart’s 30 year career and that “It’s In Her Eyes” is one of his best songs. The duet between Duglas and Chloe Philip evokes sunny, lively, fun images that could perfectly illustrate a musical starring Dick Van Dyke. That and so much more is why this song is the group’s new single and also their new video.

But more than just the title track, this new digital single also includes two previously unreleased songs. This is proof of Duglas’s current state of grace. “You’re So Fine” is a song by Alex Chilton that has never been released before. Duglas heard it for the first time in the early 90s in a rehearsal space, in a live recording Chilton made with TEENAGE FANCLUB. Giving a studio format to this incredible song with Stuart Kidd and Jamie Gash is one of the greatest tributes to Alex Chilton imaginable.

“Ferdinand’s Cathedral” is a song that imagines the life of the artist (and mailman) Ferdinand Cheval. As Duglas himself says about the creation of this song: “My friend Jowe Head suggested I write a song about an artist and I chose Cheval. Every day, Cheval would walk kilometers and kilometers, delivering mail, and then he would go home to work on the incredible structure that he was building in his garden – Le Palais Ideal. So I took a long walk, as if I was Cheval, and I came back with the lyrics and melody that came into my head while I was walking”. So, he called DR COSMO’S TAPE LAB (which is to say, Joe Kane (THE RAGIOPHONIC TUCK SHOP), Stuart Kidd (THE WELLGREEN) and his friend Norman Blake (TEENAGE FANCLUB), and put together this marchin’ band to give a cinematographic touch to this curious story.

Track Name: It's In Her Eyes (With Dr Cosmo's Tape Lab)
When she says she loves me my soul feels warm
When she says she needs me I'm where I belong
People want to know why she's got this hold

It's in her eyes and the way that she smiles
It's in her words and her funny style
And when we kiss and start to play
It feels love is meant to be this way
We start to dance and she looks in my eyes
We're having fun and it makes my heart smile
She's not just mine she's part of me
I have no choice it's how love's meant to be

He knows me so well like nobody could
Our love started shaky but now it's grown good
People just can't see what he sees in me

It's in her eyes and the way that she smiles
It's in her words and her funny style
And when we kiss and start to play
It feels love is meant to be this way
We start to dance and she looks in my eyes
We're having fun and it makes my heart smile
She's not just mine she's part of me
I have no choice it's how love's meant to be
It's in her eyes
Track Name: You’re So Fine
First time I looked at you
I looked at you and then I knew
I knew what I had to do 
I had to stick to you like glue

Because you're so fine, fine
You're so fine
You are so fine

And when I look into your eyes
I see the colour of the skies
I got your picture on my wall
I got your picture ten foot tall

You're so fine, fine
You're so fine
F. I. N. fine

I could see you were pretty
But how could know you'd be so kind

You're so fine, fine
You're so fine
You are so fine

You're so fine
Track Name: Ferdinand’s Cathedral (With Dr Cosmo's Tape Lab)
Mailbag so heavy
And feet covered in sores
I walk muddy paths and no paths at all
But I walk with nature
She's a good friend to me
And I'll start to praise her
As soon as I'm free

Three letters for Arton and one for Defu
Twenty miles home and then I'll through
But there's no rest for the wicked
And there'll be none for me
I'll start my real work
And in heaven I'll be

I'll build my own cathedral
Towering up to the sky
I can hear them all laughing
And wondering why...
I'm just a humble postman
But following God's master plan
I'll build him a cathedral
Build it the best that I can

For more than three decades I've built everyday
Staircases and towers
Stone, wire and clay
And when I'm finished, finished quite soon
I will start working on building my own tomb
