2. I am not certain that Tulsa Jesus Freak will be on there. I listened to the Zane Lowe LFL interview the other day and I got to thinking that I thought maybe she won't put it on there because it seems like a Yosemite situation. She said she didn't put Yosemite on because she was no longer "in that place" and Oklahoman Christian Maniac is clearly about S**n so I can't help but wonder if that's why she took the snippet doen and that it won't be on there.
3. Idk if this has already been theorised but I've seen a lot of people saying that they think White Dress/Waitress will have something to do with weddings because of the white dress component. However, I personally think that the entire song might be retrospective and that the "white dress" might pertain to holy communion or some sort of Catholic school stuff, and then the waitress part is when she moved to live with her aunt and uncle and did waitressing. So it'll be like a song about her childhood and adolescence.
4. I know it isn't COCC but I think Iron Gates will be like the complementary book for COCC in the same way that Violet was the complementary book for NFR. Seeing as it's due out in March I think it'd be really rad if it was bundled with COCC because it was kinda fucky how Violet came out almost an entire year after NFR. I also don't know if she's capable of releasing a book and an album simultaneously and it's probably not ideal from a marketing perspective so I expect Iron Gates in March and COCC in June/July as others have said.
Okay but it wouldn't be the first time she told outright lies
