Is she alright ? Why does she include multiple old songs in her tracklist,

HIH and NRO were only released in 2019, they aren't that old. They are good songs imo so I'm glad she put them on the album.

And we complained about Lana's album covers. I'm sorry but THIS cover is one of the ugliest I've ever seen. Why couldn't she keep the Daisies aesthetic  :(

Bc she's the queen of inconsistency

the cover's positioning is actually pretty balanced, taken into account the huge and slapped on title. so in that way, it's balanced, but there's just the issue of how unfinished and lacking in effort the red bar's been placed. 

like there's going for a tired effect, but this just looks careless from her team's behalf

I honestly love the cover and saw the Alt vinyl cover last night, I stupidly waited to preorder it and it’s already sold out :suicide:

I’m gonna wait and see if they reprint or at least somewhere else like UO or something sells it, or I’ll just get the normal one. I love them both tbh

 

Excited to see how the playlist plays out, Resilient is a bop. I liked Energy and it’s sound but I’m happy with her scrapping it

If this really still has to be explained when artists have been doing it for years to count towards album sales...

 

Yes when the songs were... Like... Successful...  :smokes: 
No but kidding aside "Harleys in Hawai", while an interesting approach for her in terms of sound, did nothing for her.  I'm not a fan of "Never Really Over", but that's just me. It had an OK success but I wouldn't put my trust in that song to carry the album sales, that's for sure. 
 

HIH and NRO were only released in 2019, they aren't that old. They are good songs imo so I'm glad she put them on the album.

With that logic, why not include "Never Worn White" or even "Cozy Little Christmas" on the album ? 

I'm not trying to sound rude, I'm just trying to understand the strategy behind that release. The title and album cover all point to a "theme" album, one that I would assume will deal with the difficulty of always trying to seem glad when you're carrying something heavy inside. But sure, let's include HIH, the fans won't mind and it takes up 1 spot, so only 10 to good ! 

NFR had a bunch of singles prior to the album's release but at least all of them had been written with the album in mind. And while the album is a great body of work and wouldn't sound the same without them, I (personal opinion) couldn't help but feel like skipping those songs because I had played them over and over. 

On the other hand, I can admit that music consumption has changed. Streaming has changed the release of singles and albums and EPs, so I'm not stating I'm right.

Well I mean Cozy Little Christmas is a Christmas themed song so it not being on this album coming out in August makes sense. For the singles Never Worn White, Small Talk, 325 idk why they didn't make it on maybe they just didn't fit or something.

Right that was my point, I loved all these songs but they were separate releases and that's great the way it is. Why not focus on quality instead of quantity. I mean the songs are already available on all digital streaming platforms, why does her team (or her) feel the need they must be included on the record ? To me, it looks a bit disingenuous to me, like "Alright, please buy my album even though it features songs you already purchased/streamed". 

 

But perhaps I missed something and those songs had always been announced as part of the album of course ! I see on wikipedia that they're featured under the "Smile" so... In which case, it wouldn't be odd at all and I'm rambling for nothing. 

 

But that being said, I do feel like she lost herself as an artist. Everything she releases is different but not in a good way, I've rarely seen that. Of course, artists are free to do whatever they wan, however and whenever they want but take the "Witness album for example. Dark, esoteric, cold cover. Alright, different image, sure let's go with it. What does she put out  (visually) ? 

 

- Chained to the rhythm: love the song and love the music video but we have colors, bubbly, fun with a twist. That's a completely different vibe, isn't it ? (Imo, that should have been the way to promote the album.)

- Bon Appétit: weird single choice but ok. The aesthetic of the music video's final scene fits the record I guess. 

- Swish Swish: fun music video but again, where's the album's visual identity in this ?

- Save as a draft: ...

- Hey Hey Hey: colors, psychedelic, clumsy and way too much of everything. Again: nothing to do with the album's theme or artistic direction.

 

And you can spot that artistic dissonance rearing its head during the "Complete Confection" era and get stronger in the "Prism" era. 

Again, I'm not trying to bash her, I actually think she's very interesting to discuss in terms of image, music, eras, persona... So I hope I didn't often anyone in the process.

365 wasnt her song, it was zedd's

never worn white was released pretty much for her to announce her pregnancy 

idk about small talk
