What is the piece of paper? :toofunny:

Agent Cooper asking the right questions! How do I not know what this is. Also, Chemtrails while crossing the Susquehanna river....omFg. This song, im so fearful for the rest of this album. Not because I don't think it'll measure up, but because I didnt plan on being assaulted by splendor so early in the year. Lord help us all

Not to beat a dead horse, but I still cannot believe that this is the actual cover of the album. :prettyhurts:
 

All her friends are more prominent than she is on that goddawful picture.


Yeah after the COCC mv I’ve come to terms with the fact that the cover features her friends (I dislike them a little bit less now) but I still find it to be poorly executed... could’ve been any shot of the video which includes her friends, if she wanted them on the cover, and it would have been 100 times better... oh well, what can we do? I’ve preordered the alternative cover red vinyl, too bad I can’t change cover on streaming services

What i think is you should get a warning point for even thinking about this. Why would you manifest this shit, why would you do that to us

My baddie initiation! :gurl:

 

I'll probably get banned if I manifest this like @Lustformoney manifesting the val del rey B&W cover :ohsnap2:

in lfl album Lana was singing thru piece of paper while recording, u can hear it good on BPBP

Personally I found it was a nice touch at the time, trying to build new arrangements for her voice rather than drown it in reverbation ; but retroactively it was a transitory step to what she does now with Jack, all this layering, and putting her quiet, sing songy voice to the forefront

this is far, far from the truth.

:cuteface:

Jack brought her back to form with NFR, and he's still doing the same with COCC.

i was referring to her 2011-2015 sound. as much as i love nfr! and the growth shes gone through as an artist, she suits strings and dramtic production so much more (in my opinion). theres only so many piano and acoustic ballads one can take before they want a violin

but saying Jack "ruined" Lana is completely untrue, by far. if Lana wanted these full string productions she'd do it - blaming Jack for that is ridiculous.

Lol guys the paper was cute at the time when she posted it in her little video. I was like ohhhhh, okay lol. It was funny and sweet. 
 

As far as Dan Heath, I think it’s super interesting she brought him on for this record. Like not unhappy at all, very glad. His strings are beautiful. Just wondering what made her do that. Nostalgia, the lack of Jack being as available? Will he be featured more in her upcoming work. I think it’s cool they really reconnected work wise for the album.

The 'singing through paper' 'technique' was tacky and stupid. Firstly, it is so obnoxiously extra and really doesn't do anything inspired to the sound - just makes it texturally not fit with any of the instrumentation or arragnements. Secondly, and maybe the worst part, was it's not consistent across the album and clearly her features (Stevie, Sean, ASAP Rocky etc) didn't entertain the idea in the slightest. 

One thing Jack did do is manage to stop her from embarking on that mistake again, and while I can't remember when she was so enamoured with the paper, with NFR he managed to make her voice more present in a naturalistic acoustic. I have my issues with NFR's mixing, however I know Jack is really good on occasion - his work with St. Vincent is a really good example of this, and his work on Violet was awesome, interesting and really varied. 

As for what we've heard so far I think the production behind Chemtrails is a reallllly good, and a nice in-between of NFR and Honeymoon, but in a way where it is different from both recrods. I had no idea Dan had returned! That is awesome though, which makes me hope there will be a bit more of his grandeur in the tracks too.

To me it's just a cute, but not cover worthy, behind-the-scene/group photo that she could've write "Acknowledgements" or "Thank you note" right next to it in the booklet. Literally any shot from the music video would've been a better cover.
 

Leave it to Lana to make an album/title track about chemtrails over the country club and feature neither of those things.
