Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott Share New Single Too Much For One (Not Enough For Two)

Thursday, 18 August 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott have released a new single.

Following Still, the rousing, piano-led Too Much For One (Not Enough For Two) fuses elements of gospel with pop music, and serves as the second preview of the duo's fifth studio album, 'N.K-Pop'. Heaton commented:

"I wanted to write a song about someone who was too over the top to handle. For years now, whenever I’m naughty, I say: “You’re just too much for one and not enough for two” to myself in an American accent. Since I got married, I’ve realised what a handful I am. I am too much for one, and I need to rein it in. My mum was the same, and so is my youngest daughter. My wife says: "When the two of you are at it, I have to run away," and she’s a teaching assistant, so she’s used to errant behaviour. I now realise I’m not as mellow as I thought I was and that I’m a pain in the arse. The song is more of a tease than writing someone off. It has serious moments but, even though they’ve been caught texting and up to no good, the couple are still together. Jacqui sounds great on this song. You haven’t really heard her vocals, then she comes bouncing in fantastically on the chorus."

The follow-up to 2020's 'Manchester's Calling' is scheduled to arrive on September 30.
