While her example is from the UK, most ot the concepts are universal. A lot of promo people we talk to say artists and managers often don't know what professionals do to promote single releases. So we asked for help from some real professionals see credits below. Then we made up an indie band with an established following and a few previous releases.
2. Timing is everything
Our current Music 4. Of course, the quick turnaround was helped by the fact that the song was usually recorded in a few hours, since there was little or no overdubbing, so it was possible to record a song on Monday and have it on the radio on Wednesday of the same week. When the emphasis on releases turned from singles to albums, the length of time between releases increased accordingly, which was natural considering that more songs were being recorded. During the Music 1. Twenty-three minutes per side was the goal to get the loudest and highest-fidelity record. Any longer and the noise floor of the record increased as the volume decreased. In fact, many hit vinyl records regularly clocked in at between 35 to 40 minutes of music. The time limitation lifted with the introduction of the CD in Music 1. This soon proved to be a double-edged sword, since it now took longer to finish recording each release because of the inclusion of all those extra songs. While 40 to 45 minutes was a time bite easily digestible for a listener, 60 to 70 was not.

You write a song, or you find a song; the song moves you and you want it to move the world. So you record and distribute that song as a single to platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. Once the song is available, anything could happen. The music could change the world, it could wow a few people, or it could go completely ignored. Of course chance always plays a part, but the outcome is partially in your own hands. In our world of short attention spans, releasing music more frequently can play a significant factor in your success. Platforms like Spotify and YouTube even reward artists who put out songs and videos on a regular basis. So singles do have their drawbacks. So put out a single first.
