PRAISE FOR "JOHNNY AND MARY"
"Terje and Ferry deliver a lovingly dedicated homage and a remarkable discovery of a classic song's hidden possibilities." - Pitchfork [BEST NEW TRACK]
"The cover is far less jittery than the original; it's actually pretty eerie. And perfect." - Flavorwire
"Together, the pair transform the New Wave ballad into something more sweeping and romantic, with Terje's churning keys and ambient synth serving as the evocative backdrop for Ferry's low, breathy croon." - Consequence of Sound
"['Johnny and Mary'] manages to capture that era perfectly. The track almost sounds as if it could have been produced by a young Vangelis with its slowly simmering synthesizer pulses and plasticky, reverberating synth-piano, and Ferry's voice quite rightly snuggles in like a kitten in a basket." - FACT
