World Shut Your Mouth
Apr 18, 2017, 13:06
Anyone on here know the story as to why Julian wrote the song "World Shut Your Mouth" several years after he gave his first album the same title?

Hearing the song on BBC6Music this morning I wondered if it was a clever marketing ploy - write a successful chartbound song and name it after an old album that isn't selling well - so the casual listener can buy the first album thinking it's on it - and then buy Saint Julian anyway?

Just a theory - probably a load of gonads - but just wondered if anyone knew the background.....
