psssst.  There's a live recording of Death Thing Down on youtube,  I was tempted not to watch and save some of the new songs for the actual release...BUT I caved...

it's a real beaut.  the song has been sticking around me for the past few days, I'm really looking forward to hearing the studio version of it.  it's made me think that this could be the closing song with the opening lyric "I was trying to end on a pleasant note"?  I also enjoy the "Jai guru deva om" lyric nod at the end of the song.

Random, I know, but are there any other Florence + The Machine fans on here?

They're my absolute favorite band, and I've always wondered what Amanda thought of them - so I was happy to hear Amanda went to their concert and said Florence was "transcendent." I think Florence is similar in a way to Amanda, in that they're both interested in putting on a great show and connecting with their audience. I know Florence is on a mainstream label, but at the same time she's certainly not your typical popstar. She really focuses on amazing songwriting, great production, and awesome shows; I hope Amanda noticed that :)

 if anyone can add an absolute URL good "forever", please do!
 i would also appreciate knowing how to find one.)
pretty sure it was Look Mummy? think i heard her singing that line when they were recording bass
ALSO, in her State of Things, she confirmed that TTAT and BOTI will have piano! :)

Amanda said at the Edinburgh gig, just before the intermission of the show, that a possible title could be There Will Be No Intermission.  Given the content of the album, its a fitting title as life has no intermissions...  And in the context of the gig, it was quite a light comic relief to have an intermission in the show as the new show has been very emotional.   

I think BOTI should be left alone, there is so much significance in it being the first Patreon release and with Zoe Keating's hugging cello.  I've never heard a piano version of the song, but I'm curious...  I think BOTI just be left on the uke, with the album being piano ballad heavy I think the uke would have a nice rhythm to the pace of the album.  The passion, authenticity and sadness contrast so effectively with Amanda's constant yearning strumming on this little, unserious, instrument.

I prefer the piano versions of TTAT, I thought the uke versions were lacking.  There can be a lot more play with the piano too in that song, so looking forward to hearing it's reincarnation because I think it's a great song and with the addition of a few other instruments, I think it's gonna pop.  Not heard the clip with uke, guitar and synths, link?

I stumbled across these images from Nicholas Kahn's Instagram, whos doing the album art   https://www.instagram.com/kahnselesnick/.  Really enjoying these visuals and how theatrical they are.  I wonder how they are going to be used?  Tori Amos has done this in the past with The Beekeeper and Native Invader with having set outfits/props/backdrops to visually describe the songs in her cd booklets.  Do people care for cd booklets now? the images are really great so I doubt they would be reduced to that small quality, perhaps an art book?   what songs do we think the images are linked to?

i like that title - i'm totally here for it. for my own itunes collection, i'd been putting all the Patreon songs in an album called "The Thing About Things" with her book cover as the cover. think those both really capture the essence of the patreon. but the album doesn't need to be named after a song, of course

i agree on the piano version of TTAT. based on the insta snippet, it sounds like uke is still there, with some guitar. but i really hope there's some piano on it, too.
