Only the Dark is my favourite track on the album but Happy People is the obvious next single.

Yeah only the dark is my fav also, but no sense in being bothered by what the next single is. I only care about the inevitable B-side.

oh and y3potential...awesome job! they both look proper but I love the happy people one.
think of one for Only the dark if you get around to it!

There will not be a 4th single 😂

Despite my leanings towards Wedding in Berlin🙏 The only option left is Happy People; Willow is too hi-nrg and will suffer the same unfortunate fate as For Your Own Good from Nightlife.
The remixes for the next single has been completed.

Who da f**k voted for Wedding in Berlin?! Scienceguy still on here?
LOL. I did, for a lark. But I do like it.

I think it's going to be Happy People.

Seems like Germany really like I Don't Wanna for some reason.

I think they've released their "slow single" from the album with Burning the Heather and if there is a 4th, it's something more upbeat again. While I was joking about I Don't Wanna in a previous post, I could see them releasing it but I think it's far more likely it's Happy People or Will-o-the-whisp.

Well, if Germany has any say it will be I Don't Wanna, now up to number 60 on the iTunes chart and gone up each day for the last 3 days. Seriously there must be some radio station there playing it nonstop or something.

I suspect you're right. shame though..cause I think burning is a dreary awkward constructed mess and they essentially blew their load with that misfire. Only the dark, however is one of the most beautiful and warm sounding PSB ballads with beautiful imagery in the lyrics I've heard since to face the truth.

I love your artwork for Happy people, y3potential. It's like the hangover version of Thursday cover.

As for the 4th single, I voted I don't wanna to showcase the dirtier side of the album, a predominant sound of Hotspot that wasn't present on previous singles.

I don't wanna has been played twice on BBC Radio 2 today. This could well be an indication as to the 4th single. I hope not personally, I want to hear remixes of Happy People.

Hoping for a Miracle, Only the Dark and You are the One all the lowest scorers. Looks like forum members prefer bangers over 'heart on the sleeve' material. ; )
