Animated D&P cover on Tidal - SDE coming soon?

Up until now they had the holographic cover when you accessed the tracklist to play any song from the album, but now they have the blue cover with pearls that move. Just wondering if we are finally getting closer to an SDE release soon...

Or they're just teasing some box store's upcoming Exclusive Holographic Vinyl Variant (LIMITED EDITION!) of the regular album lol

Not a good idea. That happened with the SOTT SDE (or was it W2A?) and everyone went apeshit about the length of time between announcement and the release.

they have a whole controversy theme tab on the estate site and that seems just to be because of the do me baby demo ... so maybe something dnp is up since they animated controversy and it had a recent release

Lol no.
Even if it was to be announced officially today, it couldn't be released before May.
And remember, we always had unofficial announcement by an insider or a preorder site with photos, tracklist, number of discs etc. A week or two before the actual official announcement.
Clearly, there won't be nothing before this summer.
It sucks a lot.

Wouldn't have been more profitable to promote W2A instead?
It succeeded in reenter the charts during the hyper competitive month of December. What a waste of an opportunity.

Instead, "they" Preferred letting die W2A from day 1 and don't release anything else for a year.

D&P was animated on Apple Music for awhile as well. Legacy must’ve submitted some updates. I wouldn’t get too excited just yet.

This is indeed a weird thing. They could have released another 'single' for this album or even
an expanded version with 2 or 3 bonustracks (since we know there were a couple more tracks
on those cdr's they compiled this album off).

The release seemed to have some interest from the general public and did fairly well, I think,
so it's stupid that they did nothing else to promote it or keep it in people's minds a bit longer.

I hear ya, but some sort of official Communication about the next release(s) would be welcoming. The decades away comment was just tongue in cheek. This sulence is deafening.

Yep, I saw that months ago. Randomly, I think Controversy was animated too.

RIP sad

This is a thing with streaming services and has been for some time now. I think it's up to the artists to provide the animated artwork (though I don't know), but many albums by legacy artists on Apple Music are either animated or have an artist-specific animated video not attache to any particular album. I've noticed Pink Floyd and Sting recently.
