About this deal

Andrew Paine of NME considered it the "best James record in a long while and there are some near-inspirational moments. It was promoted with an appearance on Top of the Pops and various festivals across three months in the UK, Spain and Portugal. On 19 June, Dotmusic revealed the album's artwork, which is a computer-generated image that merged all of the members' faces. House in the Woods studios; producer credit was split between Brian Eno, guitarist/violinist Saul Davies, KK and the band.

On 29 October, Booth announced he would be leaving the band after their current tour engagements, with the band aiming to continue recording. On 6 September, the band announced their departure from Mercury [36] after completing their six-album contract, though they planned to release a compilation and reissue their back catalogue in the future through the label. Though the band had planned to use a different producer for the main sessions, [3] Eno and guitarist/violinist Saul Davies were enlisted to produce most of the recordings.

Booth said the album was the first since their fifth studio album Laid (1993) that they had strayed from the Verse-chorus-verse structure. He added that the album had an underlying theme of distaste for "habits, addictions, [and] impulses that we can't control. In a review for The Guardian, Caroline Sullivan wrote that the band "continue their run of mini-symphonies by and for men who don't cringe at terms such as 'birthing partner'. They had written over 30 tracks for inclusion on their next record; on the opening night, the band played seven of these new songs.

In March 2000, the band revealed they had been writing new material and planned to record later in the year, with the aim of releasing an album in January 2001. The following month, the band revealed they were in the process of recording with Brian Eno, [4] doing pre-production. He edited the track; after giving Booth a copy, he re-did the vocal take, resulting in the final version. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single in late June, followed a week later by Pleased to Meet You on 2 July through Mercury Records.Ben Folds was initially scheduled to support the band for their UK stint, but was replaced by Turin Brakes. Although he doesn’t play any instruments, he’s so life-like that there’s already speculation about his “personality”. He expanded: "It's their tightest, freshest, most contemporary batch of songs, weatherproofed to stand the test of time. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single on 25 June, [29] after being delayed a week from its original release date. The Shining", "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" and "Alaskan Pipeline" were engineered by James Loughrey.

At the end of November, the band played a few shows in Spain and Portugal, [36] leading up to a UK tour in December. What Is It Good For" was engineered by Pettit and mixed by him, James and Bascombe at House in the Woods and Whitfield. English Beefcake" stars a man who ends relationships, while being hesitant in causing pain as a result of them. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was included on the band's fourth compilation album Fresh as a Daisy – The Singles (2007). Playlouder's Sarah Bee considered it a "more low-key" affair that was "less brash" than Millionaires.He’s been christened James, obviously, and will appear on the sleeve of the forthcoming album, Pleased To Meet You. Though noting it wasn't as "adventurous" of a release as Wah Wah is, the band made a record "whose songs are often times spacious and funky at the same time. Space" begins as a Radiohead-esque track with an electro intro before shifting into chorus sections in the vein of Simple Minds.

English Beefcake" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" were included on the band's third compilation album The Collection (2004). Senorita" is about a guy that falls in love with a dangerous woman, and is followed by the disco song "Gaudi".

The final show of their December tour was filmed, [41] and later released as the live/video album Getting Away with It. The UK special edition included the bonus songs "Gaudi" and "What Is It Good For" as 9th and 10th tracks. It was originally titled We Want Our Money Back, [5] before being re-titled Space, [15] and eventually Pleased to Meet You.
