Next CD is at the Duplicator, What's the Title?

We sent the artwork for our upcoming 56th CD to the duplicator on Monday, followed by the master recording on Tuesday. We'll be taking orders soon.
The title is Conspiracy No. 56, and it includes 12 songs from the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. We currently have 20 songs that are not yet on CD, but some of those are being held back for specific future CDs.
In 2017, we released a CD with a cover photo of Wayne Bartley playing electric guitar. It looked great, but there was just one problem: Wayne only played electric guitar on two of the tracks; Tom Tincha played on nine of them!
Tinch didn't get offended at the oversight, even though he'd been in the band five years longer than Wayne and had never been on a CD cover. Ironically, Tinch is our resident conspiracy theorist, yet he never suggested foul play was afoot.
But we've wanted to put him on a CD cover ever since. Since this is our 56th CD, and it comes out soon after his 56th birthday (September 17), the time seems right.
Third Day's second album was titled Conspiracy No. 5, so we thought Conspiracy No. 56 would be a great title for this CD, especially since tracks 5 and 6 are about something we consider to be a legitimate conspiracy.
Track 7 deals with one of the most famous true conspiracies ever, but "Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?" (Psalm 2:1). "There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD" (Prov. 21:30).
Track 9 isn't about conspirators, but it does deal with co-Spirit-ors, the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. Thanks to the Holy Spirit dwelling in them and us, we need not fear any conspiracy (Matthew 10:19-20, Luke 12:11-12).
Nuff said for now!
