Speaking of the music industry

How do "singles" work nowadays?  You used to get the release of multiple singles from an album - but the physical singles market seems to have died in the UK, it's all digital nowadays.

So who is going to wait until a particular date to buy their favourite tracks from an album when they can buy them the second the album comes out?  And do all of these count towards the singles charts?  If an album by the new big thing comes out could it occupy the entire top ten?

And is this why the album chart is doing so badly?  Because people just cherry-pick the tracks they like?

Edit: I'm wrong about the album charts - they still seem to be doing fine.
