Chemtrails Over the Country Club - Pre-Release Thread: OUT March 19th, 2021

Recommended Posts

in my imaginary world this is how my dream COCC tracklist would sound and look, just using lana's old music as a reference point  :flutter:  (note: i want lana to constantly evolve and she doesn't need to "recreate" anything or give us a "2.0" of anything necessarily, but i just find referencing her past music to be an easier way to portray what i mean lmao)

  1. an opener with West Coast vibes
  2. the title track that in my dream has For K (Part 2) vibes sonically  :hooker:
  3. a track like Fuck It I Love You but darker in sound
  4. a leisurely, cheeky, lounging track like Doin' Time
  5. sexy Pin-Up Galore vibes
  6. Sad Girl vibes
  7. a trippy ballad kinda like Ultraviolence but with more emphasis on psychedelia
  8. here the album begins to take a darker turn, going from 'country club' to 'chemtrails' - a track here that's like a blend between Art Deco and Venice Bitch would be perfect
  9. atmospheric, intense track, like Summertime Sadness only darker and maybe with more guitar
  10. Mermaid Motel vibes
  11. Kill Kill vibes, only even more sultry
  12. a piano ballad like Hope bc we all know there'll be at least one lmao, and what's a lana record without a tear jerker?
  13. a classic rock inspired "end of the world" anthem like The Greatest

Unless the title is supposed to double as an inside joke, i doubt the album will be a country album since that really doesn’t fit the “country club” vibe unless it’s a more glitzy posh type country like Loretta Lynn or Dolly Parton. But based on the instrumentals on Violet and the instrumental of Patent Leather Do-Over, I really think we could be heading in a bit more of a surf noir sound direction (maybe it’s just wishful thinking)

the issue with lana doing a folk album, which i would be supportive of in theory, is that she would make boring folk because it's so reliant on lyrics that really resonate. She has some beautiful lyrics (ie. hope) and a lot of basic lyrics, but not a lot that resonate well in a folk context

Folk-ish album would work as an EP rather than a whole album. Maybe released in the winter, with the warmth of her voice and a couple of layered acoustic guitars. Something small, between two bigger projects. It’ll probably never happen since she never seems to consider releasing an EP at some point (which would make sense for her: it’s easy to tell a short story and be coherent with 4 or 5 songs, and it avoids dragging on a concept that shouldn’t).

I need my hands on the COCC. Where are u COCC?

We are longing and lusting for the COCC.

sirens is definitely her most "folk" album so far, even if it's just an acoustic guitar, and i think it's one of her most lyrically mature, so this makes a lot of sense.

My fav lana song, i would die if she made more songs like that!  :wub:

 

She does so well with chaotic songs like that. I hope this next record has some of that rock sound.

Do y'all think it's going to be more of a summer or fall album? I'd prefer some cozy and intimate but dark fall vibes.

Yesss she always describes her albums as summery somehow so I'd love a dark, chill fall vibe too

Yessss, I would love an album full of songs like Cruel World, Brooklyn Baby, shades of cool, California, Cinnamon Girl, I love that hard indie-rock sound, It really reminds me of the Velvet Underground, It has a really classic feel to it.

Maybe there’ll be a couple of « summer » tracks (I always imagined WHF like that), more breezy tracks, especially if there is a lead single coming soon (if the Sept 5 release is still on). But some tracks will probably have dark tones : title track maybe, If This Is The End- I Want a Boyfriend (if it is a finished song; how depressing is that title?)...

So something for the end of summer like NFR was? That album transitioned so well into fall.
