None. I'm sorry, but I really find it silly to preorder an album I don't even know anything about yet. can I get a name? a tracklisting, at least?

sometimes I think i'm a bad fan. :lol:
thank you. i mean, yes, we are all going to buy this album regardless, but how common is it to make an album available for pre-order with no title, no artwork, no tracklisting, no first single and not even a release date? i know oli is targeting with this pre-order the hardcore fans who are sure to want to buy the new björk album, but still, i find the implicit assumption inane

I will eventually get the vinyl, but not spending any money until i see the cover and know the name of this thing

None yet. I am sooooo tempted to start being digital only but I just love CDs even though I never play them.

I need the space but it's so difficult trying to part with 20+ year old CDs.
Ugh, same! I'm trying to downsize my cd collection, so wasn't planning on buying a physical copy. It's so hard to let go of cds :/
I'm going to do it. The ones I'll keep extra special ones, like a signed one from Lisa Left Eye Lopes. The rest are going on eBay (if they're worth anything) and charity shops.

I'm going to rip them in WAV format first and back them up.

I have some rarer Björk ones I'll probably offer on here first.

Ive just throw loads of old junk out and given other stuff to charity and it felt like a cleanse!

I just realised the vinyl version is more expensive than all the previous releases (£23.99). I assume it will definitely be 2 LPs. Anything else goes with it to be that price? :shock:

I'll need to know what extra content is on some editions before ordering to know whether it's worth it.

i preordered the digipak right away when i saw the new record available for preorder. i've always loved digipaks and especially in björk's case i think the biophilia and vulnicura ones are very pretty, vulnicura especially because i love the visuals and the alternative cover. also the fact that vulnicura is my favorite album from her might have something to do with it :mrgreen: looking very much forward to seeing what this one's like and getting to hold it in my hands!
