– Jo Dee Messina gave her fans the opportunity to become backers on her new album through Kickstarter and let them choose the songs for the upcoming project. Now, Messina is letting fans pick her next single.
Messina is putting the finishing touches on her newest album, and she's reached the part of the process in which a radio single must be selected, according to her publicist. Messina has said she wants to introduce the album with an up-tempo song. She's performed new material in recent live shows and is now relying on concertgoers for feedback via social media on which song they think should be the album's first single. Woman's Rant and Peace Sign are both strong contenders, her publicist said.
Fans can listen to a portion of each song on the official Jo Dee Messina website and cast their vote on which one they want released first. "For years I've had people asking for certain songs to be released, but had no control over the singles. Now that have the opportunity, I want to let the fans to choose the single. After all, they made this record possible - it's their album," she said.
