    Selfish is a great track but doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the album, I'd have probably put that one after Dangerous. Both great additions and I literally can't stop playing the album.
     
  2. For some reason, he and Priyanka are announcing the Oscar nominees today. I remember she was briefly in the Supporting Actress conversation for The White Tiger, but otherwise it seems a fairly random choice.
     
  3. I'm the same - his last 2 album covers were just head shots...
     
  4. A pretty solid album with chilled out tracks. I prefer the second half more and yes Spaceman as the debut single is an odd choice when you had Delicious and If I Fall right there.
     
  5. Priyanka knew. 'Glow' would be serving major Ellie Goulding vibes.

  6. Didn’t expect the bonus tracks to be this strong. Pleasantly surprised.

  7. Okay, the 'chill' versions are really lovely.

  9. They both looked so uncomfortable doing those Oscar nominations! It was extremely colourful!

  12. So couldn't he use the deluxe to put out a version of Death Do Us Part that doesn't cut off in the middle of the chorus? It triggers my OCD so much.

  13. Album without hit single in struggling shocker.

  14. And lack of promo? One Graham Norton interview is not going to push an album into the Top 10. I don't know how he thinks his annoying marriage is promo enough.

    Especially when his last solo efforts only got to #16 and #25 on the back of decent-sized hits.
     
  15. Do we know why the campaign was so rushed? Like, I'm not complaining because I'm used at the neverending pre-releases of our pop girls, but this album feels like it came and went in a matter of days.
     
  16. Well usually an album is done and then they spend months of organising tours and sponsorship and with touring out of the picture and promo in a weird place, the music comes out faster.

  17. I was thinking this too. There is almost guaranteed hits on the album - Especially if they gave This is Heaven a push. Surely they would want to maximise profit and make the most of a campaign? I was wondering if it was just seen as a side project by Nick before the next Jonas release, but apparently DNCE are working on new material too? Maybe it was a bunch of great cast offs the label had accrued over the years from Happiness Begins / Nicks albums and they thought let’s just stick it out? I really can’t figure it out. The way it’s gone would really make you think Nick should leave the label.

  18. That's true but they didn't even wait to see if one of the songs could do something on the charts. I mean, with a decent push they would have sold some more copies but probably that's not the main goal of the label I guess.
     
  19. This can happen anyway, a song could grow and start selling the album - but usually radio gets sent previews and if they're not super positive or if the budget for radio isn't there they probably go 'fuck it, we're releasing'.

  20. Guessing since this was done during quarantine last year after the Jonas Brothers album was shelved along with their Vegas residency, he decided to drop this instead. Maybe he owed an album. Probably didn't cost very much either because it's entirely done with Nick and 2 others.
