The first digital release for this single from 1996 which was originally released on three different labels, wiiija records in UK, Elefant in Spain and K Records in the U.S.

This is also featured on our compilation album ‘A Bout De Heavenly’ which collects up all of their 7″ singles onto one lovely LP or CD

Here’s a review from 1996… “Heavenly plays like a pop fan’s wish for what might result from scrambling genres, the singer/songwriter preoccupation with relationships, punk’s linking of personal and public politics, and pop’s undimmed promise of romance. When they’re really cooking, Heavenly simultaneously suggest the Slits, Abba and Joni Mitchell. They’re not about to opt for just one thing, anymore than the girl in “Trophy Girlfriend”, of whom we’re told “She’s kissing boys/ and girls/ Trying to decide which she prefers.” – Boston Phoenix
