Recommended Posts

livingladolcevita

I thought it might be a good idea to open up a sleuthing thread for Marina's next album, where any new info that might pertain to the next album can be discussed. I will keep this thread updated when new bits of info appear. Stay on the lookout for info and hints about the album & if you find anything, feel free to come straight to this thread! 

 

I've put all of the information/rumours/ speculations we have for Marina's next album in spoilers, so just click on the icon and it will continue to open up further information as you go along :) 

 

Studio & Songwriting

Spoiler

2016 -

In October, Marina confirmed that she had begun writing new music, posting an image with the caption, "Writing/ Studio" on Please sign in or register to view this link., Please sign in or register to view this link. and Please sign in or register to view this link.. She also edited her profile picture to a chartreuse-coloured icon.

2017 -

Many fans believe that the writing she did between 2016 and 2017 was scrapped. She states in a further Instagram post in December, 2017 that she has "started to write music again".

A short snippet of her working on a new song was also posted in December 2017.

 

2018 -

Marina posted in January that she was working on new music and was almost ready to go into the production stage:

March 2018 - she hints at working in the studio again with a comment about her robe:

 

On March 22, she posted another video of her writing a song:

Producers & Collaborations

Spoiler

It is possible that Marina will have collaborations on this album.

There are rumours that she could have been working on a song with Lana Del Rey, as their friendship has evidently blossomed in the last year or so, and photos were posted of them and producer, Jack Antonoff. It is unknown if they are writing music seriously together for use on either of their albums or whether it is something they were doing for fun and personal enjoyment. If there is a collaboration between the pair, it may appear on Lana's album.

Marina & Lana meeting up in May, 2017: 

 

Lana and Marina, 2017

 

 

Again, in February 2018:

And with producer, Jack Antonoff:

 

It is also possible (but mostly unlikely) she could work with Grimes, after meeting her recently in March 2018 and being a fan of her music:

Marina was also photographed with Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs and Florence + The Machine at what appears to be a dinner event. This could make it somewhat possible she is working with either of these women, as well. Or she is just enjoying their company and friendship.

She is following and being followed by Mick Schultz who did some production for Rihanna which is interesting. As for the tagging,people can tag people in other people's posts.

Why are people tagging Charli? Are we sure Marina didn't tag them herself? :gloria:

I would die if they collaborated again tbh but someone tagged her in the cat pic too so it's probably fans just being petty.

I think we won't get this album before 2018 :cat: Maybe Q4 2017 but it's still going to be a long wait.

I think we'll get a single by Q2 next year at latest. It might come earlier than we know.

I feel we will get something toward the middle of next year, mostly because I believe it will probably be an EP rather than an album.

Why? Did she say this in a interview that I probably missed? (I always miss something :selena: )

She did say that she wanted to do something different musically after FROOT but my thoughts on it being an EP are speculation.

I don't think it will be an EP, because officially she had only one EP, "The Crown Jewels", and it was ages ago. And it was right before her first album, so it's understandable. All those "EPs" with remixes and singles don't count.

The only thing I can hope for now is a steady release and avoiding all 'leaks' and messy releases and misleading changed titles and concepts and etc.. :toofunny:

I have high hopes for this :kewt:

True but she talked about hating the two-year cycle of album releases and wanting to do something different and an EP seems like the best compromise she and Atlantic could come up with. This is Marina we are talking about though so who knows how she feels now.

So... she's actually making music. For real now. I hope.

I think the title of the next album will be "Salmon Dreams". Also, she will change her stage name to Marinated Marina.

what in the name of everything holy is this

At first I thought it sounds like a reversed song (cos I don't know what she says for sh*t), but yet I couldn't understand what song was reversed, so maybe it's legit, idk.

What is that? :wtfina:

It's really short though, so... We'd better not hype too much (if it turns out to be fake)

pressure makes diamonds

Either someone did a great job of reversing/editing one of her songs or thats legit. I can't recognize that melody or the sounds.

Honestly, I really dislike the association of the album with that horrible bright yellow fabric. Idk, something about it makes me sick and annoyed

I saw people speculating that yellow > fruit of the month > "Happy" > she's happy rn > she's writing a happy record

But that yellow fabric is stupid, it's not supposed to be associated with the album or fricking anything.

Fortunately. I hope the colors associated with MATD4  are B&W or pastels but that seems very unlikely tbh

We have so little information, that we just overthink everything, slightly going loopy, lol.

Taking into account her new look (short black hair, straight fringe, like she's Mathilda from "Leon"), I kind of hoped the new record to be more fast, even agressive, more "f*ck u" type of songs, and all kind of fun. But if this... should I call it snippet or not?... is not fake, I'll be a liiiiitle bit dissapointed. A little bit, because that snippet was wonderful, she sounds like heaven. (if it's her... jeezzz)

Also, while on that note, I really hope she found some inspiration in Japan and that she will bring that feeling into music or lyrics.
