Congratulations! From what I've heard so far the songs and productions are
quite well done. I think it is a good strategy once again in this day and
age to put out singles and collect them on an album later rather than drop
a whole album at once, many folks have neither the time or attention span
to digest a whole album in one sitting in our 15 second social media
newsfeed age.

It's funny how history is kind of repeating back to the early to mid 60's
when 45 rpm singles were more popular than albums and many artists did the
same thing... put out an album after sufficient released singles (and
often filler) could be glued together and fill an LP..

All the best in your future projects, and again, congrats on this release.
