According to German music site Rockszene, the release of Roses’ first single, “Tomorrow”, is scheduled for January 27, only 2 weeks before the album hit the shelves.
In a music industry more and more focused on digital singles issued months before the release of an album, it seems like a strange marketing strategy for a band that was absent of the musical scene for so long.
Remember that this information was not confirmed by the band. Later last week, O’Riordan told Billboard the band has not yet made a definitive choice about the first single.
First scheduled for an October release, “Tomorrow” was first pushed back in late 2011, according the the band’s official website.
