^^^ I just posted a news article in the Japanese news thread that confirms Higuchi's Coldplay medley as being her new FS (debuted at the Prince Ice World show on May 3).

Starr tagged Adam Rippon in her SP music announcement post on Instagram.

Thanks for starting this thread for the new season, @Wyliefan! :) For now I'll list the skaters who already have competed in at least one senior international and have revealed their music selection (vs. just the choreographers with whom they've worked).

@Karen-W posted the program music announcements by Audrey Shin (USA) back in March in the U.S. Women's thread -- Audrey first announced via social media on March 6 that her FS is to "Skyfall" by Adele (clip included in the embedded IG post here): https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/u-s-women-4-how-dare-you.110065/page-17#post-6403401
Audrey Shin announced [on March 26] her SP music for next season will be to the Pina soundtrack - https://www.instagram.com/p/CqN--25Dh9x/
Audrey also tweeted: https://twitter.com/AudreyShin4/status/1639843696655970304
She hasn't revealed the choreographer(s) of either program yet, AFAIK.

Hanna Harrell (USA) - FS to Adagio in G (Epic); choreo. by Misha Ge: https://www.instagram.com/p/CpGV8aPPA0f/

Yaroslav Paniot (USA) has a new SP choreographed by Rohene Ward (music not yet announced).
FS: Queen's "The Show Must Go On"; choreo. by Ben Agosto & Katherine Hill: https://www.instagram.com/p/CqzHQ25r_Yb/

Dinh Tran (USA) has 2 new programs choreographed by Misha Ge:
SP: L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cp159EPOR9j/
FS: Tron - Legacy: https://www.instagram.com/p/CrjxY1nPQep/

Douglas Gerber (NZL) has a new program (SP or FS?) to Blackpink's Lisa, choreographed by Drew Meekins in CO Springs back in February after 4CC: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CpIvZNGNOGy/

Yes, I was wondering when to fashion a noose for the sake of figure skating, so Blinks and Lillies being introduced to the audience seems like a good time.

These are nice.
I still hold a grudge to last season's ice dancers because for all the musical theater choices, I did not see one program with music from "Newsies"
You shame yourselves, dancers. SHAME!
But the real question, should they have gone with the trained singers doing the Broadway version, or my preference, the not-so-great singers like Christian Bale in the movie version, and Ann-Margaret doing the Razzie-winning song 'High Times, Hard Times'...
