So, immi has been asking, which song do you think would be a nice second-single?
Very Happy ah, and a new single means a new video [maybe even 2, or 3]


i think half life or swoon would be the boom song for immi
but for a video aha would be soooo cool...
what do you think?

These are my picks for single choices:
2-1
Half Life
Swoon
Bad Body Double

I would be happy with any of these songs being picked as the next single or just a single, doesn't have to be the next one necessarily.

I think it's good to mix up different types of songs as singles so I say:

1. Wait It Out
2. Tidal

And if we get more... 2-1 for the finale.

If we get still MORE singles... Swoon.

I agree that Aha would be a killer video

As for the next single... I think it could be Bad Body Double; it's upbeat, it could have a rather good video and I see it being successful...

Then, I think Half Life would be a good move.

Bad Body Double!!!!! Could you imagine it? Having Immi being chased by a bad Immi. The good immi looking in the mirror at the bad immi. It could be a really cool and funny video.

Aha would be amazing too, but for some reason i vision the music video without the real immi in it. Like maybe the music video should be an animation. puppets or clay?

To be honest i can go on and on about how each song can be a music video.... any song is great to become a music video, but these are my choices.

I think swoon or tidal would be good singles ... I think Tidal could even be play-able for radios ...

But so far, the music video she made for fth were so terrible that i prefer no video than another crappy one ! Laughing

Lots of people here are getting really boring ...
It's not a question of anger AT ALL !!!
I can't be hypocrite just to be nice !

We can only give our opinion if it's a positive one ?
I don't think it's honest to say only good things !

I love Imogen Heap's work ... she's probably my favorite solo artist ... But i feel like i have to accept that not everything from her is good ... She's human, she can't be perfect !

hu

I don't think this forum is made to be an altar on which we have to deify Imogen Heap ...

Wait It Out is probably the best 'single' material, but one way or another I would like one or more of the 'alternative' versions of Tidal to be released, as bonus material. And I hope Immi now has time to do her '3 piano pieces' idea.

Swoon seems a natural fit to be the next single to me.
I could also go for Earth, or Bad Body Double. Maybe Tidal or Half Life, later.

As much as I like 2-1, I just don't think its very radio-friendly.

I personally like Aha! as the next single, but I am not too sure how that would go down, or else I would like to see Earth Smile

I think Half Life or Wait it Out are the smart commercial choices.

And I just happen to love both of those two. Wink

I think WiO, Tidal, and Aha! have great radio play-ablity (even though that's not a main concern) while Swoon, and Aha! would have awesome video potential.

That said, I think some of the other tracks could have great success without being a single. I feel like I'd hear Little Bird on a tv show eventually, and 2-1 and Canvas in a movie. Bad Body Double and Earth have a more commercial feel, and would be great for campaigns or tv ads.

I think so too! I get a very clear visual for the first half of the song ^_^ But instead of 'good' and 'bad', it's more of a 'normal' versus 'glammed up' immi.

I'd go with "Swoon" or "Wait It Out." They're both very rememberable and more beloved songs from the album, along with still having a meaningful Immi tone to them.

"Tidal" is also a pretty good choice...I don't know why, but I feel like the other two would make better singles, though.

I definitely do not think "Bad Body Double" should be the next single because not a lot of people like this song much, nor do I think it's either exciting enough or alluring enough to be a single.

I DEFINITELY agree that tracks like "Earth," "Little Bird," "2-1," and "Canvas" would make great for television and movies. :] And I've always seen "Earth" as being in a cool commercial. :)

Senescence, I love & agree with you. <3 And, yeah, I didn't much like either of the FTH videos. I liked the direction the first one was going...but it missed the target for me. :[

Swoon, Wait it Out, or Bad Body Double. They seem the most naturally adaptive to screen. I bet they'd turn out wicked.

So I know it's not much to go on but the albums in the shops have "includes Canvas, First Train Home & Wait It Out" stickers on the front... so maybe they are the three singles? (yeah OK canvas wasn't a single as such but you know... promo video!). Who knows. I'd love for Swoon or Bad Body Double!

Strange, when I bought it I saw a similar sticker, but it said half-life as opposed to wait it out
