  1. They’re not actual signed CDs are they, it’s just a signed postcard thing?
     
  2. That's right. It's a signed postcard.
     
  3. Who gives a fuck about signed anything

  5. These songs are giving me refined Lizzy Grant-vibes and I love it.

  6. I want a whole orchestral background

    I was in the winter of my life
    And the men I met along the road were my only summer
    At night I fell asleep with visions of myself dancing and laughing and crying with them
    Three years down the line of being on an endless world tour and my memories of them were the only things that sustained me
    And my only real happy times

    I was a singer
    Not a very popular one
    I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet
    But upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky
    That I wished on over and over again, sparkling and broken
    But I didn’t really mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is

    When the people I used to know found out what I had been doing how I had been living, they asked me why, but there’s no use in talking to people who have a home
    They have no idea what its like to seek safety in other people
    For home to be wherever you lie your head

    I was always an unusual girl
    My mother told me that I had a chameleon soul
    No moral compass pointing due north
    No fixed personality
    Just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean
    And if I said I didn’t plan for it to turn out this way I’d be lying

    Because I was born to be the other woman
    Who belonged to no one
    Who belonged to everyone
    Who had nothing
    Who wanted everything
    With a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about it
    And pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me

    Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people
    And finally I did
    On the open road
    We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore
    Except to make our lives into a work of art

    Live fast
    Die young
    Be wild
    And have fun

    I believe in the country America used to be
    I believe in the person I want to become
    I believe in the freedom of the open road
    And my motto is the same as ever
    "I believe in the kindness of strangers"

    And when I'm at war with myself
    I ride
    I just ride

    Who are you?
    Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
    Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?

    I have
    I am fucking crazy
    But I am free
     
  7. When it’s the same price as a regular CD this guy right here.

  8. Also labels care as they give albums No 1s.
    Didn't A Star Is Born secure the UK No 1 via the 1,000 signed CDs?

  9. I doubt Lana will be no 1 unfortunately. She’ll be up against Taylor’s second week which is bound to still be huge, certainly in the US.
     
  10. Credits can be found here.

    Interesting that Hope... is listed as a 5:58 extended version. Did I miss this news before?

  11. The Greatest sounds divine.
     
  12.  
  13. Pretty sure she's up against Taylor, Tool and possibly Brockhampton in the US, so they're focusing elsewhere. That probably explains all the variants being sold on her UK store, not that her chart position really matters
     
  14. Bit rude.
     
  15. Her erasure of Wales still completely sends me when I scroll past UK tour promo.

    I’m assuming the Marina jokes have already been made?

  16. I hate when they do that. Surely people want signed CDs/vinyls more than a postcard that they'll probably never do anything with.

  17. but do people care for a nonpersonalised signature? I want to meet the artist snd that he/she writes my name and something personal...
     
    junglefish, andru and dodoriazarbon like this.
  18. Sadly I don't think she has any chart in the US charts against Tool, considering how big they are there
    She has more chances in the UK charts
     
  19. Signatures mean nothing unless it was done as part of a meeting, which I guess adds significance to both meeting and signature, or if it's on memorabilia after the person is dead.

    I only got things signed as a 'may as well' moment of whatever, plus I could talk to the person signing for like a minute. See my iconapopic frosty meeting with Charli, or when I put my comic book idol Grant Morrison on the spot about his then-mythical Wonder Woman book. A 'where is the album?' venti latte.

    JK Rowling signing my first edition Goblet of Fire silently while giving me a death stare before an assistant moved me on was worth it too actually. I was 9.

    tl:dr signatures are only worthwhile if you get to interact with the person too.
