That's amazing to see the written lyrics like that ❤

The cd is a none shiny paper booklet of the lyrics and artwork. The vinyl looks really nice.

Those lyric sheet scans look like the ones in the CD booklet.

And Tove Lo who has been lauded for the way she is a savvy, modern pop star pretty much does an album every couple of years too. And the one time she did try to do the "quick and often" thing, she lost a bit of cred for effectively chucking out a bunch of half finished stuff.
Oh there are definitely exceptions, and it seems that artists are definitely operating on their own timeframes now, some quicker than others. But I can't think of many examples of charting artists who've put out albums two years in a row lately. Ariana Grande did it and it was another case of the media praising her for having the creativity for doing so (as if it had never been done before), and both Taylor Swift and Charli XCX have done them as responses to COVID. But it does seem to be very much the exception these days, whereas in the past nobody batted an eyelid if an album quickly followed a previous one.

I used to have a poster of those lyric sheets. Might still have it hidden away somewhere in my garage!
