The lead single: can it sink an anticipated album before it's even dropped?

𝕴've been blogging a lot this summer about Arcade Fire's lead single from Everything Now. It's an instantly-catchy, room-grabbing hit. (Or it would have been, if radio had picked it up - I still think it'll be an indie party classic for years). But it was a strong lead single, something which seems to be a rarity, or a fluke for albums over the years. Why do artists/record labels have such a hard time picking a lead single?

Journaling the month: July 2017

𝕴n order to keep myself motivated going forward, I'm going to try to journal every month, with some of the things that I have accomplished. It'll be corny, and of little value to a lot of people, but hopefully it'll help me take stock of things. Also, it's on my LifeRPG app as a monthly goal, as is blogging once a week, so I may as well kill two birds (that's a very violent idiom, by the way... isn't there a bowling term or something, that could be used instead?).
