The song "It's OK" has been chosen as the next single by DELIRIOUS?

The choice of the ballad has surprised many industry observers. Said Delirious?' manager Tony Patoto, "A lot of people have come back to us to say this is their favourite track on 'Mezzamorphis'. We might be bucking the trend, but we still feel it's a strong radio record. Other bands and artists like Robbie Williams and The Verve have enjoyed Top 10 placings with melodic ballads. So we're hoping for a similar breakthrough with ours. If all our fans and friends turn out in force to buy it, then we could see that happen."

With release date of 21st February 2000, the single will be available on two CDs - along with some brand new tracks and popular concert material like the spoof '60s tune "Pursuit Of Happiness", reminiscent of the theme from the TV series Friends. For those with CD-ROM drives, there will also be the accompanying video to "Pursuit" - along with other surprises. "Offering so many extra treats gives people value for money," said Patoto. "The fans are always looking for something new, so both CDs will hopefully meet that demand." Well before its release as a single, "It's OK" has already created an impact. At a concert in the USA, the band dedicated it to a young American woman who'd tried to commit suicide - and who gained fresh hope after listening to their music.

"I think there's healing in the song," said Patoto. "And we've seen from the letters we receive how the band's music has touched people so deeply. So we're believing that anything can happen, really." CR
