Even in Memoirs she did an European promo tour.
    But I need a new album!
    I think she promoted the memoir really well last year! Sure there is room for improvement always (I would've liked for more international appearances) but the interviews were a great mix of funny vs. serious and she appeared in several places and over an extended period of time promoting it and not just crammed into one week.

    I think with albums it's more difficult to promote when she knows she doesnt have the full backing of the powers that be.

    But I must admit that the world seems to be embracing her now more than ever! It's amazing to see and feel. So maybe it's time for a new album?

    Also I want a spring release this time! I mean, AIW starts its rise during October. I hate the fact that Caution was totally eclipsed by her Xmas Era.

    For me, I dont see an adaptation of a movie or TV series based on her life as problematic tbh. I actually would love to see it, but dont want her in it or too overly involved. I think it could be cool to have it done while she's alive and well.
    I agree with you. I'd prefer a documentary or something like that where she can go into the writing process, her life and other acts talking about her.
    Her life is tough and if she's involved or whatever it can go the Glitter route

    But that's another territory she could explore and it's gonna be easy for her as it's so close to her Xmas domination and her popularity is at its peak. Plus her version is already the most popular one with zero promo. Still Top 30.
    I think she should release a new music video for it next year. I mean, we love the festive mess that is the original but there is room for improvement for sure!

    It definitely is noteworthy that there are several covers of ALS and hers seems to be most popular on iTunes (and perhaps elsewhere?) at the moment.

    I think if she work on it like she worked on Caution we'll get a full album by Fall. But of course, it all depends on what else she has planned for the year. Perhaps there are limitations now due to COVID, but we know she lays down vocals alone anyway.

    I guess we'll get indications soon enough as to what to expect.

    But after a brilliant 2020, I also wouldnt be opposed if she decides not to do anything at all.

    She should find a way to perform it on some show in future BEFORE New year's Eve.

    But I don't see a new album this year tbh (a regular one, I mean).

    Maybe we're getting The Rarities Part II or even Someone’s Ugly Daughter w/ her vocals, that would be lit.

    Looking forward and hoping for some interesting collabos tho.

    I'll even go out on a limb and say Fall 2021 for a new album.

    BTW this performance kinda slaps (lipping aside)....has all the major uptempos.

    Just as Auld Lang Syne was becoming popular, the label bumped the price back to $1.29

    They're so messy.

    It will need a strong cast (or at least bright new talent) and production team otherwise it'll turn into a low budget mess that will go straight to streaming and not be heard of outside the lambs.

    I would've preferred she holds off on the movie adaptation for another few years at least

    What we need most at the momment I think is new fresh music. It's already more than 2 years since Caution and will likely turn into 3-4 if she doesn't hurry up.
