Wouldn't there be royalties for the songs per the album sales as well? If Rumours is made up of 10 songs then part of the album sales money goes to the people who sang those 10 songs & part of the album sales money goes to the people who wrote those 10 songs. If a song is released as a single then the writer of that song has even more potential to make more money because now they are 1/10th of the album PLUS the extra sales from it being a single.
