My guess would be either I Don’t Wanna, Wedding In Berlin or Hoping For A Miracle. (Only my guesses not my preferences)
Ihope it is not Wedding in Berlin. I read some very strong reactions against it. Public opinion does not favour it much.

    I dont care what the single is really. I do however care that we have another B-side. although I have to say lyrically it sounds a bit trite, its going to be real interesting to actually hear a new song...that was written in their imperial phase...its going to be almost like time travel in a ways.

    I’ll be surprised if it’s not Happy people.

    Remixes already completed....unlikely to be a ballad in my opinion...Happy People, I think..
    Even if is a close cousin of pop kids...

    Still hoping for "I don't wanna". I want it separately in March, and then MUSIK as a bonus EP for Annually. Four singles should be good enough to close the campaign, right? I kind of want my wallet to rest then, haha

    Nope. I'm hoping for a fifth single to have both I don't wanna and Happy people as single releases. :D They're both great tunes and singles material. They could basically release as much singles as they want to as the CDs or even vinyls are produced for the fanbase anyway.

    m+

    P.S. Only the dark should then be part of a future Stanger Things soundtrack. That would be a great match as well and introduce them to a different target group.

    I don’t think five singles is inconceivable. They certainly seem to be coming thick and fast. If each one is profitable for them, why would they stop? It’s not as though they need them to break the chart.

    I think either Will-o-the-wisp or Happy people are fair contenders. I don’t wanna is the track that they’ve promoted on streaming channels which makes me think it’s not one they are considering as a single.
    Woof.

    A mildly euphoric remix of Happy People would be great, but if history is a guide will get a something grating. I used to be super excited by the remixes, but since Electric they’ve
    been pretty bleak.

    Point being: I don’t care what the single is. Bring on the b-sides.

    I really don't understand the liking for I don't wanna. I find it to be an incredibly dull, repetitive b-side about nothing much at all. Like In his imagination but worse.

    I would say Happy people is definitely the best option for a fourth single. I expect it will coincide with Annually - there'll probably be a joint announcement very soon with a pre-order for Literally / CD single and the 12 inch.

    As for a fifth? I'd be surprised. Although Electric and Super sort-of had five singles each, the singles from Hotspot have been much more 'traditional' singles with proper releases and formats being released simultaneously. If there were a fifth it may be just some kind of limited edition 12" remix or something. I could be wrong of course

    I’d expect a “Classic song ‘20” to coincide with the greatest hits tour before a 5th single.

    wouldn't releasing even more than 5 singles be a good thing? whats the downside? if you pair the singles with new B-sides, I suspect many like us would keep buying. $$$$$

    "I’d expect a “Classic song ‘20” to coincide with the greatest hits tour before a 5th single."

    hmmmm....how about they do another cover and maybe bake into it the threatened collaboration with Tracey Thorn?
