Another thing to keep in mind is that there isn't as much energy and emotion displayed in those live performances as opposed to the studio version. I'm under the belief that the new version is a better representation of what Will was feeling at the time, and a better representation of this part of the relationship/album story. I've noticed a lot of people are bashing Will's idea of 'finishing' the album and comparing him to George Lucas and stuff like that. This track is the best example of this going to good use, there are various track ideas and lyrics that Will attempted to incorporate into the original Twin Fantasy but failed, if you're a die hard car seat headrest fan you may recognise some of these in the final version. All the talent really is pushed into this track, and the concepts and ideas Will wanted to originally put on the album come together into what I'd describe as the quintessential Car Seat Headrest song.
You'll probably see what I mean when the album comes out, but in my opinion the singles that have come out aren't really a good representation of what the new albums about. People think he's selling out and stuff, but you really need to experience those tracks in album to form an opinion.
In summary, Famous Prophets (Stars) is absolutely breathtaking, and all of the fans of the original who fell in love with Will's story and emotions will 100% appreciate it.
