Oh dear, I’m seeing lots of warhorses lol .. and that everybody wants to rule the world by Lorde isn’t up that real emo downer, depressing version we’ve been hearing lately?

Maybe someone can start a thread in the Trash Can again for program music suggestions/their wish list and keep this one focused on current announcements, pretty please? :)

Thanks @GoneWithTheWind - guess we'll have to wait to know which composer(s) for "Romeo & Juliet." ;)
Yesterday Mia Kalin posted a photo with Cindy Stuart to thank her for choreographing her new FS (music not revealed): https://www.instagram.com/p/C5HMjOAS2eM/
ETA some of the announced choreographers (but not music):

Amber Glenn mentioned in her Golden Skate interview at Worlds (uploaded yesterday) that she planned to work again with Kaitlyn Weaver and Katherine Hill for next season's programs.

Minerva Fabienne Hase/Nikita Volodin (GER) and Ioulia Chtchetinina/Michal Wozniak (POL) worked with Mark Pillay and Paul Boll on their new short programs in Toronto after Worlds - Ioulia's post: https://www.instagram.com/p/C5J2322urcO/ & Minerva's post: https://www.instagram.com/p/C5LCw6RLc6H/

Niina Petrokina (EST) - refer to post #1 - was with both pairs in the same Toronto area rink in Richmond Hill and Mark Pillay choreographed her SP.

Deniss Vasiljevs (LAT) has worked with Vadim Muntagirov, a principal dancer at The Royal Ballet in London ("I look forward to performing this "Bayadère" next season!"): https://www.instagram.com/p/C6MhrSzotk1/
He did not specify SP or FS.

High hopes for this!!!

Koshiro Shimada (JPN)
SP: "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Shawn Mendes
Choreographer: Shae-Lynn Bourne

Oh dear, Shawn Mendes is hawt, but this Frankie Valli cover is atrocious. (And there are good covers of this song out there, so why Shae-Lynn picked this ghastly version defies all logic.) 🤷‍♂️

IMO anything that incorporates that Barry White song needs to pay tribute to Ally McBeal.
