what is the ideal amount of time between singles for an album?
i always thought leaving 2 months in between is perfect for promoting the first one, teasers for the second one, etc.
ex: there’s a single in early march, promote it for march and april and have the second single drop in early may.... maybe 6 weeks for promo and 1-2 weeks for teasing the new song....
but i’ve recently discovered some people disagree (they think longer or shorter)
for example: madison beer’s last album
a single in january 2020
a single in february 2020 (2 weeks later)
a single in august 2020 (6 months later)
lead single in january 2021 (5 months later)
the album in february 2021 (just after)
that seems so weird to me. the hype from the first two singles died down by the third one, then that hype died down before the lead single and album dropped....
please tell me your thoughts. don’t be afraid to type out a little bit. i’ll read every comment. i’m so curious about other people’s opinion on this since it can make or break hype/a release cycle
