I love the whole Aphrodite album, everything about it including the photos - she looks glorious! I'm so excited for tomorrow!
Aphrodite isn't comparable to this: it had a strong theme.
Yes, the theme was 'executive produced by Stuart Price'.It did?
Jeez, talk about over analysing! What I meant was her team, management and particularly label will have had an overall say in what direction they were pushing her new music. I'm not saying she's not involved in that, but as a pop act (male and female!) don't usually get to make those decisions. Nothing to do with being a woman or not!“The new sound they’ve picked for her” - yeah, cos god forbid a woman do something off her own back.
Yes, it does sound like someone rustling some papers.Does anyone know what the interference sound is in the bridge of 'Live a little'? Is it intentional?

I have been listening to album on loop through my phone at work and to me the sound is great, less polished and clinical as more electronic albums. To me it almost sounds 'live'. I don't know if it happened during recording and they have just left it in. The songs sound like the have been sung from start to finish, rather than just going in and doing a line/verse at a time.Maybe those paper dolls? Do you think it's meant to be part of the vibe of the song? You can hear it at the start too.

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but given she was working with Sigala before the whole Nashville lewk, was she originally on his Paloma collab?
The Sigala track she demoed was co-produced by The Invisible Men, so it's not Lullaby...a couple weeks ago he hinted that it might appear on his debut album on Twitter.
Most albums can take a few listens, most of my favourite albums ever are ones that grew and grew on me.Just made it through my first play-through and I'm not disliking it, but not looooving it. Not worrying me at all though, it's very very rare that I like an album the first time I listen to it. I was 100% indifferent when I first listened to CRJ's EMOTION and now it's my favorite pop album of the millennium (feel free to judge). I'm looking forward to listening to it again later.
That is unusual, Japan has for many years always been the best places for release. Normally they release great Deluxe Editions and brilliant Maxi CD Singles in the 90s.What the actual hell at Japan not getting the Deluxe Edition? They're missing out on some of the best tracks on Golden, aka Lost Without You, Rollin' and Every Little Part of Me, I hope the Deluxe is released in Japan some day.
I love this:
“Definitely…. On “Golden,” the line I had in my head was “we’re not young, we’re not old, we’re golden.” It didn’t quite fit in, so we adapted it for the song. That was one example of trying to claim something that I felt I had no control over. Doing promo for my last album, I was often asked, “How does it feel to be a woman your age in this industry?” and I was just overit. For my own satisfaction, I wanted to be able to say that we just are who we are at any point in time…. I was 46 then, and now I’m about to be 50. I don’t mind being asked about my age at all, but the way it was framed last time was getting very boring and frustrating. So, yes, telling it how it is was very liberating [on this album].”
