Album title sweepstake?

Postby paganpoet » Mon, Aug, 07, 2017 12:24 pm

While another single-word, latin-flavoured album title would be lush to keep with tradition... surely she's running out of latin-ish words ending in "....a"? and words starting with 'V' for that matter? :lol:

I wouldn't be surprised if we have another similar sounding member of the family though. But, something simple and transcends literal meaning and beyond a latin portmanteau (like 'Post') would be lovely.

Thoughts? suspicions? desires?

I think I'm expecting something a bit more obscure this time. 'Vulnicura' was so literal on every level, and her definition of 'utopia', dating, finding new love again has been all very coy.

So I'm expecting some kind of Björk-ish latin hybrid word that basically summarises this...

Coquettica?! :lol:

As much as i'd love her to use more than one word I don't think she's ready for that yet, I think it'll be different to the others though

On Vulnicura she used a lot of compound words/two worded titles so I think the titles will be more single worded. A lot of the titles on Vulnicura also used concrete nouns e.g. stone, lion, lake, so the titles might be more abstract and conceptual like "Allow" and "Loss", or more vague and visceral like "The Gate"

My guess goes to: Euthopia or something like that, which is basically utopia but with fancy spelling

if not, something that is closely related to utopia, she's been dropping the term very often now, but of course, she could surprise us in the last second like with ink/medulla

one-word titles are one of the things I love the most about Björk, I hope she won't break the tradition :duck:

if it's utopia, it will be something like utopoeieon.
but of course the literal translation of the greek means it doesn't exist, and this is an album of hope, so i think she will do better than that. i think it will be something like floribunda, for a flourish and a flourishing of hope joy and love.

personally, i hope it's got a þ or a ð in it.

I've never paid attention to this, but I would think she's careful to avoid repeatedly dropping words associated with an upcoming album title..? Or is that something she's done in the past?

hmmm i think actually not, back in the day medulla was referred as the lake album and then ink before the final name was given, i can't think of any other album name been mentioned in prior interviews either, so we can't really know, there's no pattern here

ughhh please no :P i can't even remember the whole name as of yet :P

And the winner seems to be... "xxxxa"!

Utopia!

(Unless she changes her mind before the physicals goes to press!)

Her 5th xxxxxa in a row!

I think it's safe to say the xxxxa's are "her thing" now. :lol:

(Also... YAY! my 1000th post! :album6:)
