    Seeing as she's shoved them on the end like that I'm surprised she's left UK NUMBER ONE River off.

    This seems to be a common startegy these days. Release about 5 buzz singles of varying quality and success, then relegate them to 'bonus tracks" and launch the album without a proper hit See also Haim and someone elae I can't remember right now. I just don't GET it.

    Didn't she do the same thing with Delirium? (Outside/Powerful/Love Me Like You Do etc). I loved that album but it's been so long that I can't imagine the prospect of her competing with the likes of Dua Lipa in 2020.

    I think you could argue they were stand alone songs from other projects (50 Shades & the Calvin/Major Lazer albums on which she was a feature rather than lead artist iirc). On My Mind felt like the clear lead single with Delirium. Not that it matters I suppose, but I just hate the messy way album campaigns happen these days.

    Please let Starsmith be a good sign. Lights was such a good album, Halycon had its moments and let’s just leave it there

    I mean, for someone who's seemed to be flailing recently, 3 of her last 4 singles will have collectively a billion streams soon - only the last one flopped. I don't think she's competing to be that kind of pop girl, at least not by choice. It's probably what the label wants, but i reckon the decision to release this album with the other tracks stuffed onto a bonus disc essentially signals that they're letting her do things her way at last, and that's probably more about delivering a great album and restoring a bit of her reputation.

    Album delayed until July :(

    In the meantime, Power is the new single coming in a matter of HOURS. It samples Dua Lipa's Be The One :bruised:





    and here's an interview where she nonchalantly shades most of her output between 2018-2020 at the 1.35 mark :D which is a relief.
