  1. "Happy Lover" from Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land (Deluxe) out this Friday.

    I believe the Deluxe Cover leaked a few days ago but can't find it dd.

  3. Do we think the vinyl will be the deluxe? I can't even remember when it's out, but I know I pre-ordered it...

  4. I don't think it will be the deluxe. Wasn't the vinyl announced months ago already? It's out in February.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  7. I'm surprised they're not going to tie it in with the vinyl release at the end of Feb, but then I suppose they're not worried about chart positions.

  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  10. 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)
  11. Any news of a physical release of the deluxe?
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. I think Happy Loner is up there with my fave ballads of hers.
  15. Not that piano chord progression again adfhdkngf

  17. 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...'

  18. 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.
  19. I will always be a sucker for a good Marina ballad.

  20. 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.
