Norman Fucking Rockwell - Pre-Release Thread

Recommended Posts

I personally love that logo and always have, since Video Games (although I do like the block letter logo used up until Lust For Life) - it's most likely just because the visuals, logos and album cover haven't been finalised yet?

i just realised she always has used this logo :facepalm: but i just remember the ugly version of lfl one. sorry :toofunny:

When was the first time we’ve heard about Bartender? Bc I’m convinced that Jack produced this song since we know she’s been working with him for a long time now

 

She mentioned it January of this year (working with Jack since December 2017) at the Grammy awards, at that time it didn't belong to a record but hopefully it will make an appearance.


So Happiness Is A Butterfly was a fully formed song in March and we're assuming the Mariners Apartment Complex visual is repurposed footage from the HIAB music video?

 

I wonder what made her change her mind about the release? Assuming that if she was still intending to release the track, the video would have been released at a later date, kinda like when High By The Beach replaced Music To Watch Boys To as the lead single from Honeymoon.

 

Since she unarchived the snippet on Instagram I think it is likely that that track will appear on the record, but presumably it's been reworked... Lyrically it doesn't seem on par with MAC.

at the Grammys. Don't remember though if we knew already that Jack was involved.

I also think that all her albums are of great quality...

 

We werent sure about the album being even DECENT

 

That being said, Lust For Life had some questionable lyrical and production choices (for me personally) - songs like Coachella, God Bless America and BPBP didn't meet the standards of her earlier work, again this is just my opinion aha. Then of course Happiness Is A Butterfly was teased and again, personally I felt that the track seemed weak compared to her other albums.

Hearing full version I hear 100% Elizabeth Grant (Lana Del Rey)  and 0% Jack.

But hey, I heard Ultraviolence as 100% Elizabeth Grant (Lana Del Rey) and 0% Dan (and Dan said it was 100% Lana).

 

A great continuation

 

tbc


Lana is our modern day Edith Piaf. Totally unique. a mixture of Brian WIlson Roy Orbison, Leonard Cohen, Gram Parsons, Elton & Bernie. Born to Die/Paradise is comparable to Elton's Captain Fantastic. All the records need to be listened whole. Waiting for a box set vinyl of all 400 songs not on any lp

I hope she includes Sylvia and Bartender, i'm soooo curious to hear Sylvia.

I liked MAC, but maybe I need to listen more times to catch it's vibe. I's a good song but idk it seems so different from everything Lana gaves us before

u know, MAC really gives me the rural, country-folk sound echoed in AKA, mixed with the guitars and heavy rock sound of UV, dashed with the dreamy, deep beats of HM-- altogether making a very early 70s rock/west coast alternative vibe (obvious due to the RHCP influences). i'm curious if she'll delve into more 90s sounds on the record, maybe something truly grunge-y or even a bit of ska/Sublime 

 

 

idk but im glad we have a direction to look forward to!!! :oprah:

I don't know why but I'm seeing something evergreen (as a metaphor) so maybe something like ivy? (obviously not a flower) I really am excited to see the visual direction she takes with this record.

i like the idea of abandoning something like flowers (temporary, beautiful but not forever, and often cut from their homes) to something more sturdy and permanent- like lush leaves. god!!!! a bitch can dream

When Lana drops a lead i'm ALWAYS afraid that I won't like the album, this happens since Honeymoon

:icant:

I really hope she don't go the rural country-folk road from AKA. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Yayo and Kill Kill, but this doesn't match anything we heard from BTD to LFL

I really hope one day we get a documentary or book from Lana herself to talk about her career, it's interesting to me that she spent so many years constructing the persona of Lana Del Rey (lyrically, sonically and visually) to gradually take it apart record-by-record and eventually return to her natural self. I'd love to know the thought processes and reasoning behind it all...
