"The Commercial Single" was released to promote The Commercial Album by the Residents. It was released in the United Kingdom and France and, despite being called a single, included eight songs: six songs from the album and two (unlisted) bonus tracks, all clocking in at one minute.
Despite its title and running time, this release would more traditionally be considered an EP.
Famous quotes containing the words commercial and/or single:
“The cultivation of one set of faculties tends to the disuse of others. The loss of one faculty sharpens others; the blind are sensitive in touch. Has not the extreme cultivation of the commercial faculty permitted others as essential to national life, to be blighted by disease?”
—J. Ellen Foster (18401910)
“A single spark can start a prairie fire.”
