Shakin' Stevens new single 'Now Listen'

According to the official website this new album represents a "distinct progression in Steven's career", with "strong country rock and blues influences". The title track and first single was co-written by Stevens, Tim Woodcock (poor kid) and Cliff Masterson. I get the feeling that instead of working on the song together, each one wrote their separate part. The chorus sounds very typically Shakin Stevens, while the verse was surely written by one of the other co-writers. Each time I hear the chorus I feel like I've heard it before. It sounds like an old Shaky tune. Here's the video so you can judge for yourselves.
