I am so down for the aesthetic of this album

While I'm admittedly not a huge fan of Swifts music (I think Red and 1989 were her only 'good' albums) I am in love with the covers/variants, and after listening tonight to see how its gonna sound, I might finally get a Swift album on vinyl....gasp.

I know they're mock-ups and "subject to change"...here's what I am feeling like labeling the colors for each edition (plus I'm bored right now):

 

#1 - "in the trees" - Light Brown

#2 - "in the weeds" - Dark Green

#3 - "meet me behind the mall" - Sand

#4 - "betty's garden" - Lavender

#5 - "stolen lullabies" - Light Green

#6 - "hide-and-seek" - Light Blue

#7 - "running like water" - Grey

#8 - "clandestine meeting" - Light Purple

 

I can see how the color choices match the edition names

I can't believe I'm reading this thread and actually considering buying one of these albums. This is not a statement against you fans, I've just never gotten into her music. The fact that Aaron from The National is involved has me intrigued.

Also, 5 would be Sage and 6 would be Periwinkle. The names have to be "cuter".😛

I’m digging that light blue one. I haven’t really listened to her since 1989. It got a little too pop for my taste after that. Do we know what this gonna sound like (genre / subject matter) or are we just waiting til it drops?

I’m right there with you. The aesthetics and color scheme are tempting me...

The “Betty” cover honestly kinda looks like the Betty album cover by Helmet. I think I might have to get it just cause of that.

I went with 2, 4, and 6. Nice colors. 🤷🏼‍♂️

My exact debate right now. Which one...hmm...

@jhulud If you don’t want the #5 variant, and want to get the whole set together with one shipping rate, I will take that number 5 variant for the cost plus shipping.

 

I normally hate her work, but this album seems like a step in a direction I might like. 👍🏻

 

All good. I ended up ordering #5 on its own and keeping the order of 7. I remembered that UMG are incredibly terrible in their customer service and who knows when my email to them will be acknowledged and get a response.

I figure you will be keeping it then. Smart move as I suspect they will at least DOUBLE in value by shipping time. 🤑

 

I might pick up a purple OR that green if they stick around until Saturday.

 

Otherwise, the Bull Moose version will be fine also. 😄

Not sure if its helpful, but i just got a response from their customer service and they cancelled my first order for 7 -- 4 hour response time.  I ended up reordering for all 8.

I sent them the message at 9:06am. Let's see what will happen.

I would think they are all basically open editions between now and the 30th. Especially with that 16 week turnaround.

 

From Aaron Dessner:

 

Quote

I was excited and honored when Taylor approached me in late April about maybe writing some songs remotely together. I had been isolating with my family but writing a ton of music in the first months of quarantine which I shared. I thought it would take a while for song ideas to come and I had no expectations as far as what we could accomplish remotely. But a few hours after sharing music, my phone lit up with a voice memo from Taylor of a fully written version of a song -- the momentum never really stopped. Over the next few months, we remotely finished 11 songs (She also recorded several others with the amazing @jackantonoff) of her magical new album “folklore”. I've rarely been so inspired by someone and it’s still hard to believe this even happened -- these songs came together in such a challenging time. It wouldn't haven't been possible without so much help from first and foremost my engineer Jon Low (@heyjonlow). And my brother @brycedessner's beautiful orchestration on several songs from across the ocean. Justin (@blobtower) helped to write and sing a beautiful song and so many other friends from our community contributed brilliantly from their respective isolation — Ben Lanz (@lanzprojects), Bryan Devendorf (@postmoderndrummer), Bryce Dessner, @claricejensen, Dave Nelson (@dnelnelson), James McAlister (@900x), @jasontreuting, Josh Kaufman (@kaufyismynamo), JT Bates (@floortomjtbates), Kyle Resnick (@kresnick), Rob Moose (@mooserob), Thomas Bartlett (@tingalayo), and Yuki Numata Resnick (@kiyukiyukiyuki) — More on them later! I'm very proud of all these songs and profoundly grateful to @taylorswift for inviting me into and trusting me in her process. She is one of the most talented, hardworking and deeply caring artists I've ever encountered. There's a palpable humanity and warmth and raw emotion in these songs that I hope you'll love and take comfort in as much as I do.
