  • I'm also having dreams about the album, with the track names having a heavy play on words mingled with code and numerical figures. The title was Pangaea (or some approximation of it), also. Perhaps a premonition? 

    iTunes is still going mental with the discography, as well. For God's sake, please let it be this week. 
    This waiting feels so pointless.

  • Siiigh :( ... perhaps the next announcement will come on 1/17/17? Numerically, that looks quite nice :) 


    In the UK, that's 17/01/17, vaguely palindromic.
    It comes when it comes. Chill, kick back and don't fret!
    The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ.
    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit.
    Shall lure it back to cancal half a line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
  • If there's one thing the rest of the musical world should have learned from Frank Ocean, it's to keep the wait as short as possible.

  • Speaking of .... maybe they did learn indeed and just drop the whole thing on Friday? 
    I can't wait anymore.
  • @Uban_Tribesman Ah yes! Still a nice arrangement visually with all the 1s and 7s :) 
    @Low Ha, so true! I remember reading about the backlash from that

    It's funny (sort of) now but at the time it was a music fan's closest thing to torture! I like that he dropped the album all at once but the lead up to it was almost excruciating.

    Almost the same story with Gorillaz. Started hyping up new material since September, and now it's January and still no sign it's any closer. You can't rush art, I know... but you can decide when you announce it 

    :P

  • I'd quite like a little teaser, first.  Something along the lines of what was done for Seventh Tree where they used a loop of clowns on the website;

    Soon be nothing of this world.
  • There's a saying, "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."  You're not going to affect the date, so why get stressed about? Just celebrate the fact that a new Goldfrapp has a new playlist is coming out.  Stress is the number one killer, don't do it to yourself.

    Yes.  And, speaking of chill...


    If that doesn't chill you, there's something wrong with you.  Or, you're hammered on scotch, whichever comes first.  I tend to get wired.  Okay, I'll shutup now...
  • I couldn't agree more. When it's here, it's here. Getting upset will only make the wait longer. Even though I question the point in stringing this wait out, I know it'll be worth the test placed upon our patience.

    They always deliver because they always do so from their hearts.
  • I feel like this release definitely requires patience but I am very interested in the way that it has been so secretive compared to the last one. Beyond the one (MOJO) blurb, there's been a lot less confirmation and explanation about this album compared to Tales of Us (from the likes of Alison herself). At this point I think it has made me a little more excited but I can't lie and say I wouldn't be way more excited for an album trailer/sample/single. Hopefully there is a small sample, like the last few maybe even a snippet on Instagram with the next teaser in the very least, to come soon.

    That is fab, isn't it? Listening to that, you just knew the album was going to be spectacular.

    Reminds me - it's been said often- of that early phase where they did Xmas messages and so on. It felt like a personal connection to fans. Its curious that although Alison probably puts more time into her twitters and FB posts than they ever did with those shorts - and her pix are stunning -  they don't feel as personal, somehow.

    If you take a certain exchange on Alison's twitter this morning literally, then it very may well be.
