Chemtrails Over the Country Club - Pre-Release Thread: Tentatively Out Spring/Summer 2021

Recommended Posts

The only reason she tiptoed with country is because NFR was very much inspired by 60s-70s Laurel Canyon, and a lot of musicians of this era were into folk-country. Jack and her ditched the country songs for NFR. COCC will probably have its own sound, but I think Country wont be part of it? I still go back to that From Here to Eternity clip, and COCC could very much be in that vein (or I’m just projecting my hopes on it too much).

 link to the from here to eternity? what is that?

 

also side note, I think it'll sound somewhat like the instrumentals on the audiobook

It’s the black and white clip she posted of that old Hollywood movie.

I’d be down with the instrumentals we heard from the audiobook, as long as it sounds like a real song.

Some thoughts;

 

I wouldn’t worry about anything because I believe this will be another great album from Lana. I don’t think she can release a weak record, even if she tried to. She is just that good. So I for one think this will be a great record.

 

However I’m not sure the album will drop on September 5. If no single comes out before the end of this month, then maybe we will have to wait until October or November for the album to come out, but it is coming soon. The poetry book and audiobook is also on the agenda so I don’t know how many things at once Lana and her team will want to juggle.

 

I think this will actually feel like a folk record. Lana will write about the themes she loves, but let’s keep in mind her biggest musical inspirations come from folk music.

 

“Chemtrails” actually are not real. Airplanes release contrails while flying at high altitudes and when flying at cruising speed. I know a lot about airplanes but I won’t bore any of you with the technical details of jet engines. A handful of people in my family have worked for the airlines so I know about this. There is a conspiracy theory that airplanes release chemtrails as a way of controlling people through dropping these Chemtrails. The issue of Chemtrails is addressed in the recent seasons of The X Files and Stephen King’s The Mist. I think with this title that Lana will be playing on how this society believes things that are not true and how misinformation and conspiracy theories spread of social media. I think she will continue to reflect on these issues of contemporary American life.

 

When we see how Lana is back to her natural hair color and considering “Looking for America” (a folk song) I think this is going to be a folk record. In recent photos Lana is simply dressed. This record will likely be more stripped down. Considering that Jack Antonoff just produced a Country record for The Chicks, it won’t be a stretch to see Lana going full on folk music with Jack. This record could be very Crosby Still and Nash inspired.

 

Anyway this is my take. We shall see how this turns out.

Omg your mind

I always interpreted the title as a mocking of the many conspiracy theories that state the "elite" are "mind controlling" us through the use of chemicals in the air/water/through cell phone towers; yet these theories fail to point out the fact that those same "elites" would be a victim to their own nefarious deeds (i.e. chemtrails would still exist over the country club; the "elite" method of mind control would harm them too).

Starting to doubt the Sep 5th date because on this site https://www.allaccess.com/triple-a/future-releases  lots of artists already have their singles ready to be played in August (which is when Lana should start doing promo for COCC), and there's nothing from her yet which is making me a bit...doubtful

Bingo! You just hit the nail on the head. That’s what Lana is going after on this record!

I don't think this list is a done deal? It's still growing as more and more artists register/release?

That's possible. I guess all we can do is wait

I think that Lana's most admirable quality as an artist is how deeply committed she is to her life's work. While BTD and Norman aren't even comparable, you still see a woman that has evolved from the superficial (not saying this as a bad thing, or to look down on BTD at all) to the spirit of the great American poets and songwriters. I am not worried about Chemtrails at all, lyrically speaking. I know that she'll blow it out of the park again, especially considering that the title evokes the strong imagery of her poetry collection. I am more concerned that I don't know what type of soundscape that this album will shape out to be; that she either hasn't covered yet, or that is in her range. If this turns out to be her Folk record, i'll be absolutely ecstatic. Norman was the turning point towards LDR being taken more seriously as an artist and poet.

can we stop speculating that it'll be a country album cause it's starting to convince me  :toofloppy:

I don't think it'll be 100% country, more like a country fusion in the same way LFL was a fusion of ... whatever the fuck that was


Thanks for buying me my meal at Denny's and my shit at Home Depot. Thanks for that, kids. Luv ya

Lana doesn’t strike me as someone who believes in conspiracy theories. I think playing on the Chemtrails theory is something she will have fun with as it will confuse people. I think she enjoys creating a mystery which I can totally relate to.

What makes you think we'll get a single? Doubt we'll get any promo at all...
