After you've labored over your album, how do you select just the right track to give it the proper introduction to your fans? Generally speaking, choosing your first single shares some characteristics with choosing tracks for your demo. You don't want to pick one of your growers for the first single - you need to catch them immediately with this one. You also need to consider things like which track will radio take to, if you're hoping for some spins. Another good angle is to look to your crowds at your shows - chances are that they're telling you which song it should be. Need more help?
