That's different to the track lists that have appeared in a few places the last few days.
From the NME site:
The 'New Blood' tracklisting is:
'Rhythm Of The Heat'
'Downside Up' (featuring Melanie Gabriel)
'In Your Eyes'
'Don't Give Up' (featuring Ane Brun)
'Digging In The Dirt'
'The Nest That Sailed the Sky'
'A Quiet Moment'
The album also features a version of 'Solsbury Hill' which is preceded by 'A Quiet Moment' â€“ five minutes of ambient sound recorded on Solsbury Hill, Somerset
same tracklist is mentioned on Undercover

I am guessing that the NME and Undercover sources are accurate? We shall see.
Great track list! I'm very happy, though I really hope the stellar version of Secret World turns up on a bonus disc.

But where is "secret world"?
Sammy The Slug18 August 2011 at 7:35amPosts: 1040 (0 today)Status: offline
Why put "the nest" on the special 2CD as it's already an instrumental track ?
Reminic18 August 2011 at 12:19pmPosts: 133 (0 today)Status: offline
It's just speculation, but it looks to me like New Blood is a concept album too, designed to be best listened to in one piece, start to finish.
In that context, The Nest does look like a good transition before ending the instrumentals with Blood of Eden.
Just my 2 cents however.
Sammy The Slug18 August 2011 at 2:15pmPosts: 1040 (0 today)Status: offline
Yes, you're certainly right Reminic but i can't understand why Peter didn't include "secret world". First because "secret world" was chosen after the vote on FB. And secondly because the new version offers more new blood for me than "the nest" which remains very close to the "OVO" version. Third, because the orchestral version of "secret world" is one of the most beautiful arrangement by Peter and Metcalfe.

For me, the highlight was Signal to Noise. I thought it showed the orchestra off at it's very best - hence the long standing ovation on Thursday night
If that's not on i'm very disappointed

Coll, "signal to noise" will on the DVD but not on the CD.
Coll18 August 2011 at 3:46pmPosts: 15 (0 today)Status: offline
I can live with that
AgentSage18 August 2011 at 5:11pmPosts: 91 (0 today)Status: offline
Re: Secret World. My thinking is that it was arranged and performed too late in the game to be included on these releases. Everything else was done several months prior.
It's a shame though, as I love the Secret World version. Perhaps it will appear in another form.
DolceVita19 August 2011 at 1:37pmPosts: 2321 (0 today)Status: offline
. .yes, me too i think the same , and maybe Peter does not like much result of this song to put it in the cd.
I preferred "Secret World" than "Downside up" with Melanie. . = , also because we have still this song on HIT!
Happy for Signal to Noise, fantastic with Orchestra!

I feel that RED RAIN really needed percussion to bring the "storm" mood of the song. Stewart Copeland, Manu Katche and Chris Hughes were responsable of that in SO.
I agree: why "nest" when itÂ´s already an instrumental composition.
love to listen to Melanie.
Dont get me wrong i Love this PeterÂ´s phase but i expected more instrumental bridges than only arranging the song to orchestra. NEW BLOOD is not following the Scratch my Back musical concept. I understand PeterÂ´s approach but this arrangments do not compete with the originals, Sorry, i know Peter reaaaaaaaally loves the arranger.
Please dont release an "deluxe edition" with really only one extra track. !!!

I don't think we should be complaining too much: we are getting a studio album, a live DVD/blu-ray, a live CD, and a bonus CD (if we want it).
This is a lot of new Peter. We always have a choice of what we buy or don't buy. The options available mean we do not have to buy every single release.
