Everybody's thoughts please :D

Commercially I think, Happiness or Why Don't The Beautiful Cry would make great singles, particularly Happiness with how pop-y and upbeat it is.

I Wish I Was In Heaven would be an interesting choice.

I don't think Japanese Prisonor of Love or Buccaneers have a hope in hell! :lol:

^ I agree with basically everything you said. I think that Why Don't The Beautiful Cry has the biggest chance to actually do something and become a hit or something like that. I also think that it has more replay value than Happiness has, although Happiness is very catchy. Last argument in WDTBC favour - it feels like a song that could sell the album. They definitely should go for one of these songs (or both) if they want some commercial success (not that the success is guaranteed ofc, but they can't do nothing wrong if they try it).

On the other hand, if they want to go for an artistic way (doesn't looks like judging from the first 2-3 singles), I Wish I Was in Heaven seems like a perfect choice.

I'd be inclined to agree with WDTBC or Happiness. Good shout.

I would hate to know that Happiness was what got them renewed success; such a bland pop song.

WDTBC though, that would be a proper hit like LIOAF.

I think it would be strange for them to release 'Happiness' only because it's the one track out of the standard 10 that they chose not to put on the actual vinyl release. That indicates to me that if anything, they themselves see it as a 'filler'.

I don't know why but I've just got a feeling that JPOL might possibly be the next single.

Didn't know that, but makes sense because it is clearly filler. Makes it even more unbelievable that so many fans are actually liking it. Didn't they add it to the live set though? That was very disappointing; to waste precious live show time on a crap song like that. But then, they are still playing Every Inch, too. Ugh.

yesterday on Virgin Radio Italy, Justin said that they just made a new video, that will be animated (becouse they are on tour, etc) so, it seems that very soon we will have new single

I'm sure it'll be a chart storming success.

Yes, that was sarcasm.

See, the thing is, unless we're going to get an awesome B-side with it and multiple formats available I don't think I could give less of a fuck about a "single" being released.

They are not going to have a successful single this era anyway, so I don't really care which song is the next single. They won't do any TV promo for it anyway, radios won't pick up the song and the chances that the song will go viral are very close to zero. The only think I could want is a Barbarian level animated video but I suppose that that's no going to happen either.

Pretty much what you said.

And given the band's design, concept and visual choices as of late - I can't say I'm looking forward to the video and hoping for something "Barbarian"-like in taste and quality may be asking for way too much.

Speaking for just myself, I've never dreaded Darkness videos/photos and such before this album's era.

Some speculate that it's "Happiness" - but that would seem odd to choose a song that you omitted on the vinyl as your single.

Not that it matters, though.

An audio only version of Happiness has been uploaded by the official Darkness page on Youtube so it looks like it certainly is the next single with a video to follow (I'd assume).

Happiness it is. I hope they put the single version on Spotify coz the stupid intro on the album version does my head in.

I don't get it. It's not a super strong track and it's omitted on the vinyl version so even the band must not think too much of its worth..?
