Arctic Monkeys have just announced that it won't be any single release before the new album Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino comes out on May 11, 2018.
What is your opinion about this ?
Personally, I totally agree. I am rather an album lover. I am often disappointed to see, sometimes, many singles released before an album came out and, when the album is there, to find out there is many other great songs, better than singles, which don't get the attention they deserve.
So, in this case, it will need to listen all to discover the songs, and that's great 🙂
Personally I'm not bothered if this song or that song gets attention like this, but I find it rather displeasing when half the album gets released as singles, and when you finally get to the album itself, there's very little left to discover.
I guess their opinion might make some of their fans sad (would like a snippet of what the album's like etc).
I'm used to albums being like journeys rather than a collection of newly released music. Releasing half of them as singles is disrupting it.
