Here's what they replied

You’re one of the lucky orders to receive an free pin with your order. However there’s a delay with the merchandise that pushes the ship date until December 6th 2019.

Let us know if you ok with this or would like us to remove the pin.


I'll probably just wait. But I stressed that I want to see the $9 shipping waived since it was delayed.
They did not reply, I think they're just fucking with me at this point. So I asked for a full refund. This is ridiculous.

I got the disc (lovely package, though the spine is printed upside down in relation to the majority of books and discs in the Western world) 8 days after the album's release. I wasn't terribly concerned about the delay since I torrented a perfect flac copy 5 days BEFORE the release date.
But no pin came with the package, as had been advertised, and no explanation was offered.
I messaged them my displeasure but... <sigh>

Remember how Chris mentioned how Everyday Life originated with the stripped down and raw "Wedding Album" from about 10 years ago?

Well, another collab between Avicii and Chris has leaked--the track is called Lethal Drug. I will not link to it nor share any leaks, but here's something I noticed. As you can see from this "best guess" at the lyrics if you haven't heard the song yet...

Just look at this verse:
"All summer we hung round'
On the streets of our hometown
Dreamed about us getting close
Dressing in your wedding clothes"


I really think Lethal Drug is more unused material from the "Wedding Album," which makes sense because the title "Love In A Lethal Dose" (which is another lyric in this song!) was first revealed in 2009 along with titles like Arabesque, Car Kids, Spanish Rain, and Cartoon Heart.

For whatever reason Coldplay decided to give Lethal Drug to Avicii, with Chris still singing on the final version. But it's interesting to think about the song's shared origins with at least part of Everyday Life. :)

This happened to me as well! I received the t-shirt and vinyl on separate days, and neither came with the pin

I did that exact same thing for the same reason (except I don't live in the UK, but wishful thinking)!! Yet I haven't received mine...but apparently it's in the mail as of early this morning.
I emailed Warner expressing my deep disappointment in not having it by release day. They got back to me on Sunday saying that they have been switching warehouses so all of their shipments were super behind. They refunded my shipping cost and told me it'd be in the mail this week. Now, it looks like it's on the way...but the badge that's supposed to come with it is delayed. Hmm.
Have you checked your order status lately? If mine shipped, surely yours is on the way soon too. :confused:
Good advice!
I have emailed them as well, and got an email today that my shipping costs will be refunded as well.

Although I'm a little bit worried now about the pin, because the exclusive version with pin is the only reason I pre-ordered it at all.

I asked for my whole ordered to be canceled a few days ago, and they just told me moments ago that it'll be so. What a shitty experience, very disappointing. Definitely not worth their pin IMO.

Glad you got your shipping costs refunded. And I hope you still get your CD, and pin.
About a week and a half after emailing them, I did receive my CD. It's now six days after that, and I got notification that my pin just shipped.
Here's to hoping that you get everything you ordered, too!!
I live in the Midwest region of the USA, and my CD shipped from Tennessee. If you aren't in the USA yours might be coming from another warehouse? I'm not sure.

I'm so confused about the part where the interviewer goes on about how 8 albums in 19 years isn't productive? What? That's an album every 2.5 years how in the world is that unproductive?

I feel like this interview could have been so much more.

I made a comment about the interviewer and then took it away, but I had a similar weird vibe about that interview; this guy is the founder of The Rolling Stone afterall. There were some better parts on the back half, but yeah, it started strangely particularly the part you mentioned.

I mean, how is it fair to compare Coldplay to the best individual bits of everyone else? Oh, Coldplay isnt as hardworking as Bruce, they dont dance as well as Beyonce, not as big as U2. What a joke. You can't be the best at absolutely everything, but you can do the best that you can, and thats what Coldplay is about!

I also think that was a strange statement. The interviewer doesn't seem to know much about album making.

And I agree that it could have been so much more because Chris was really into talking. The interviewer asked Chris questions that have so often been asked. He seemed to have listened to the new album only superficially. That's why he didn't ask any interesting questions about it. I would have liked to know something about the development of the album, the dynamics within the band, which of the band members added what to the songs etc. etc.
At the end there was one interesting sentence, though. Chris said that they still wanted to reach as many people as wanted to be reached by making records and traveling around. So they may go on tour again, but then of course Chris will have to prove that it can be done eco-friendly, which will be difficult.

Well, judging by their latest social media post, that's its for the Everyday Life era.

Onwards to LP9!
Not if the supposed LA shows happen. Plus, they're performing on the Graham Norton Show on December 13th.

And it looks like another music video will be shot in Ukraine, presumably for Trouble In Town:
Looks like we are getting music videos for at least most of the songs. That's one way to compensate for a short era.

So we're not quite done yet. Not that this isn't still shaping up to be quite a short era!
