    I love a quick follow-up. I also guessed from the fact that Sweetener is a fiver everywhere already (that and the 3 new singles so not exactly Sherlock level shit, I admin)

    The last track is a 'fun' late addition courtesy of Max Martin et al which samples "It Makes Me Ill" by *NSYNC. As such, I'm inclined to say it's our only hope.

    Horrible cover. It looks like it's Christina in her Genie In A Bottle days.

    I like the simple back cover though, as well as the title of the last track.

    The cover is very mixtapey. And not good.

    I remember her saying last year 'thank u, next' would be the last track so makes sense

    Could be worse, she could have dolled herself up as a smurf.

    I think the quick follow-up album is replacing the industry standard of 'deluxe with bonus tracks' of late and I have to say I like it!

    Well, yeah - remember that Ellie Goulding one that added about 10 tracks? That's a whole album. A whole new thing feels fresher than issuing "ExtraSweetener - The Tooth Rotting Edition " or something.

    In addition to Break Up With Your Girlfriend Savan Kotecha co-wrote Ghosting, Bloodline and Bad Idea as well so maybe not our only hope.

    The colours on the cover are clearly inspired by Björk’s slug genitalia effort. Goodness such enduring influence :disco:

    There's a slight hint of Madonna's Erotica to it as well and by that I mean the full length pic from the Sex book which was altered for the album cover which obviously I won't post..

    Maybe a mod could split the album chat off into a new thread from OutSync's first post?

    Does the cover include actual chip fat marks as pictured in @Outsynk’s post? Actually the whole thing has got a grubby Terry Richardson air to it (as well as a strong whiff of slug cock)

    The sound of a woman being tortured? Look up any Lana del Rey album.

    Why is she going for some ART BOOK LOOK for the album cover when there’s all manner of cheap and silly tat inside, based on what I’ve heard of the single? It’s like being given a box of high class boutique chocolates, only to find that it contains MILK TRAY

    At the time of the request I didn't realize octophone was a moderator. If I knew I would have given her the opportunity for sure.

    I have no idea how to split or merge threads. I'm sure I've merged threads once but I'm buggered if I can remember how I did it. Old age, y'see.

    Anyway, here for this. Do we think there will be a CD on Feb 8th? Not that the UK has anywhere that'll sell it?... :(

    Now it’s got the look of some sort of Sunn O))) production
