    Well, the album has been out for over a month now. A lot of bands and artists drop a single and then drop the album and then tour for the album and that's pretty much it. Heavy did well and I guess the album did too, right? I think the label is who decides singles and when to drop them. I would say Invisible is likely, but I'm not sure anymore, since they've dropped the live performance of it they were saving from Corden a while back and I'm not sure how the actual song is doing in the charts. Good Goodbye could also be a single, but that song has been out for a long time now, about a month before the album even came out, as well as a music video, etc. Not sure what else would really do well on radio as a single off of the album. Can't see Talking To Myself, Halfway Right or One More Light being singles or successful singles if they did become them. Maybe Sharp Edges, MAYBE. Nobody Can Save Me doesn't really flow like a radio single, so I would say no to that one. Sorry For Now could possibly, but again, the structure is a little strange for a radio single that would be a big hit, especially since there are tons and tons of songs on the radio that sound like that one that have a more normal structure. Invisible seems like the likely choice.

    I need to find this version you're speaking of. I've only ever heard the version on the album. I think I might enjoy this version. I know we can't ask for links, I assume it's on YouTube, so I'll search when I get back home. Seems interesting to me. I missed a lot of stuff from The Hunting Party era, I don't think they promoted it well enough, you gotta search for stuff from it.

    "Nobody Can Save Me" could work on radio but I personally couldn't picture it actually doing well. "Heavy" was really the song with the best shot and it didn't do fantastically

    Its still did pretty well for an LP song in 2017. They really should release their second single soon (I would think Sorry For Now has the highest chance of getting radio play).

    I could honestly only see Talking to Myself as the next single. It could reach a wider audience since it's the most rock-ish song on the album.

    Not to mention they seem pretty intent on playing it at most shows. I feel like Halfway right is just as single-worthy as Invisible, if not more so. I don't wanna see Sharp Edges as a single when there are such better songs.

    Why would they promote their only rock-ish song for a pop album?

    Why would they promote two of their least heavy-rock songs on a heavy rock album? *UIG and FM*

    Because they were the most radio friendly and were still at least rock songs. Making TTM their next single is just setting themselves up to fail.

    Well, it seemed like you were saying they wouldn't pick it because it's the most different, so I was pointing out an example where they also picked the two most different tracks. They might fail to all the fans who were looking forward to more Heavy, but lots of fans of their rock sound would be pleasantly surprised in comparison to any other song on the album.

    Also, just noticed Heavy finally moved down to their second most popular track on Spotify. It had quite the run though.

    According to another user, Talking To Myself is the next single for the album. As I said before in my post, I can't see it working well as a single, especially with the album having been out for a few months by the time it probably comes out, but who knows, maybe it will catch on.

    Just loved this instrumental, thanks for sharing it @Sasuke For Now. It probably sounds better than the original because there are some sounds you can only notice when you take out the voice and let the instruments do their work. If there is a new release only with instrumentals I´ll buy it for sure.

    They're only available until tomorrow due to copyright stuff I guess. Oh well, this was really nice of you guys to share. :)

    Damn, the Nobody Can Save Me instrumental is awesome. I think it and Sorry For Now are far and away the most interesting instrumentals on the album.

    I don´t know, but I saw on Wikipedia that there´s going to be a Sharp Edges Music Video (I´d prefer one for NCSM or SFN). I think this album could have at least 4 singles. Now that we have Heavy, we could have NCSM, SFN and SE or TTM.

    I wouldn't believe anything wikipedia says but am interested in TTM music video (if it's the next single). It's one of my favourite tracks on OML.
