    And did it leak? Yes it did so we will win either way. If it shows 26th then its coming on 26th. Either official or by leaking. Unless they change it like 5 minutes before midnight

    Even if she did have a bigger promo run/rollout planned, I def think she scrapped most of it after all the media/Instagram shit. 
     
    Maybe it’s for the best. Last time we heard her voice she sounded like she had just just taken some hallucinogens and washed them down with everclear. 
     
    she’s clearly going through a #thing right now so maybe less is more tbh

    Also, if it does come out on the 12th, then this is hands down her worst pre-release era. Right now is the perfect time to release a single to get everyone interested again. 
     
    Imagine dropping the best video of your career over two months in advance alongside a shitty album cover, a shitty single cover, and then go radio silent until a week before the album 
     
    I can't even defend this. I feel like she doesn't care about this album at all. Just like Honeymoon. Both deserve and deserved better.

    Some people doing the most on here to defend an unprovoked transphobic rant, yet again. People said she isn’t Jewish because it’s not as easy as say, converting to Islam by saying a few words and signing a paper, it’s a lengthy process. Really don’t think anyone in the comments was being malicious about her caption... and her randomly bringing up trans ppl all the fucking time is so obsessive and pathetic.

    In my head, I feel like Ultraviolence and Honeymoon are kind of two halves of a whole experience. 
     
    while she said Ultraviolence doesn’t have a specific narrative or through-line, the themes are consistent. It’s an album dripping with depression, heartbreak, drugs, and passion. There are some brighter moments (Brooklyn Baby and West Coast aren’t necessarily dark and broody) but those are just kind of cute songs. As a whole, this album is very dark and moody. It feels like a highlight reel of some of the worst moments in her life: estrangement and breakup with Barrie, abusive relationship in New York, looking back at failed relationships, her bad experiences in the industry, and a dependency on drugs and alcohol throughout. 
     
    So if we take Ultraviolence as descending to her emotional rock bottom, I look at its follow up Honeymoon as her just kind of dwelling in that rock bottom, if that makes sense. I’m not gonna say she starts to look upward, cause tbh she doesn’t until Lust for Life (which is the whole point of that album). But the protagonist of Honeymoon is definitely a woman who is at her lowest. 
     
    If Ultraviolence was a summation of her trauma and her sorrow, Honeymoon is her self-medication in their wake. Honeymoon carries similar themes to UV, but presents them almost in the past tense. She’s no longer singing about losing her baby, she’s singing about how she’s living since she’s lost him. He’s already gone. Now, she’s just fantasizing of a honeymoon she’ll never go on, listening to music and daydreaming while she people watches. She just wants to run away from her problems and get high by the beach. She has a new romantic interest, who she just wants to run away with, but the depression is still hovering over her. Despite the temporary highs she describes (drugs, sex, partying), she still feels like she doesn’t matter to anyone, she’s unlovable, and that she has nothing left to live for. 
     
    so yes that’s my ramble on thematic/narrative connection between Ultraviolence and Honeymoon.

    omg i love them!!!! honestly the photos not being in the best quality adds to the vibe of it, and i love how clean the chemtrails and LDR logo look  i also feel like a light blue or green background could be gorgeous

    Hey there! From time to time I like to play with Photoshop and do some fanart (not frequently tho, design school really sucks me dry). It's been a while since I done some Lana but today i had this idea while listening to Heroin so wanted to share with you this LFL-inspired COTCC cover:
     

     
    Some alternative covers with minor differences:
     
    I wanted to do it in a higher res and use some stills from the MV but we don't have those  so i had to use screencaps instead, sorry in advance for the photos not being in the best quality. 
     
    Anyway, hope y'all like it!  More might come, idk, i'm lacking motivation lately lol

    Hiiii I really loved the final version, but I felt like it was missing the "oomph" of the demo! So I just brought the drums back! 
     
    Sorry they don't sound that great, I had to extract them from the demo and it was a long process of editing, cutting/pasting and trying to make it sound ok. I am also in no way musically inclined, so they might sound... off?

    I'd be shocked if this album doesn't debut at no. 1 . Unlike NFR, there isn't much competition for the 3rd week of March (unlike Sept. 2019 when Taylor Swift and Tool had both just released). Unless Adele surprise drops her album in the next 2 weeks, I dont think anything can block COTCC!
