If Sony promotes Popular Problems with the same level as support as it gave to Old Ideas (a billboard in Times Square, etc.), will the album make #1 in the US and UK? As I recall, Old Ideas was kept out of the #1 spot in the US and UK by Lana Del Rey's first album, but it made #1 in a number of other countries. I wonder if LC will go to Europe for press conferences as he did with Old Ideas.

If you look at the upcoming releases for Sept. 22 & 23, it seems like the only album likely to provide competition is a set of jazz standards from that ever popular duet, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett! Here's hoping.

It's only a guess but I'm thinking anything Lady Gaga puts out will dwarf Leonard's sales.

Looks like Amazon US jumped the gun as the listing seems to have been removed now. There's nothing on Amazon UK yet.

So, another Patrick Leonard's production. Another Juno Award, maybe?

I wonder if "a street" is the lyric we heard many years ago, something like "I'm standing on the corner, where there used to be a street" and "but nobody wants the side I'm fighting for"

Only 9 songs? Looks and sounds like Old Ideas Part 2. Not complaining just saying what I see.
