I don't think it will be the deluxe. Wasn't the vinyl announced months ago already? It's out in February.
Sorry, it was announced I just wondered whether they would switch up the tracklist as its out after the deluxe release. Maybe some wishful thinking.
 
From Apple Music, the deluxe edition adds the following tracks:

11. Happy Loner
12. Pink Convertible
13. Free Woman
14. Venus Fly Trap (Demo)
15. Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land (Demo)

Release date is January 7, 2022.

Seems a bit of an odd move to put a feature on a bunch of the album's songs, and then not include them in the deluxe. Looking forward to the three new songs though.

Especially as ... all these collabs really feel like a crucial part of the 'era' at this point, highlighting each song with interesting artists. A bit of a weird choice, she should at least slap them on.
 
Happy Loner is gorgeous. A bit Marina-ballad by numbers maybe, but the production is so ethereal and her voice sounds amazing.

The lyrics can’t avoid her usual clunkiness in my opinion, but I still like them (and find them a bit relatable for the first time in ages? Oops)

Any news of a physical release of the deluxe?
 
Happy Loner is a nice addition to the album, but I can see why it was left off the initial tracklist. Highly Emotional People and Goodbye do the whole work better than Loner.
 
It's a bit of a double up of some of the other ballad moments for sure, but god the chorus melodies are gorgeous. I'll be using. I never enjoyed her piano ballads so much before this era.

Maybe Pink Convertible will get a bit more of a push just before the deluxe comes out?
 
It's boring. The first half of the album is good and then I couldn't tell you how anything went after Highly Emotional People except for 'I Love You...'
 
She has a very… particular way of playing the piano. I’m not even sure if it’s a chord progression or what but it’s the way she plays it. It’s the same on Happy, Numb, Man’s World….

But the song is cute. A little unremarkable, but nothing bad.
 
It sounds familiar. It’s nice enough to listen i a few times. I was hoping that the deluxe edition songs would be more like the first half of the album.
