Lana Del Rey will have a good time July 4th with the discharge of a brand new album titled Blue Banisters. Del Rey’s eighth studio album so far, it’s set to reach rather less than 4 months after the discharge of her seventh full-length, Chemtrails over the Nation Membership.
Del Rey shared the album’s launch date and paintings in an Instagram submit on Tuesday night time (see under).
Beforehand, Del Rey stated the follow-up to Chemtrails can be titled Rock Sweet Candy and be launched on June 1st. Because the picture of Del Rey featured on the unique paintings for Rock Sweet Candy is identical one used for Blue Banisters, it appears she has merely modified the title of the album and pushed again the discharge date by a month.
When Del Rey first introduced plans to shortly comply with up Chemtrails with one other new album, it appeared she was largely motivated to answer the commentary that preceded the discharge of Chemtrails — most of which she introduced on herself.

“Simply need to say thanks once more for the sort articles like this one and for reminding me that my profession was constructed on cultural appropriation and glamorizing home abuse. I’ll proceed to problem these ideas on my subsequent file June 1 titled Rock Sweet Candy.”
In a subsequent IG story, Del Rey underlined a particular passage questioning a few of her current actions. The article particularly cited a since-deleted Instagram submit by which Del Rey sought to defend the quilt artwork of Chemtrails by using the “I’ve Black associates” protection, and Del Rey’s ill-conceived feedback relating to the January sixth rebellion.
“The defensive notice was pointless, as no person had considerably criticized Del Rey for ‘together with’ individuals of shade in her upcoming album,” argued Harper’s Bazar’s Iman Sultan, “and her must disassociate herself from the Nazi-led riot on Capitol Hill was additionally curious given Del Rey’s longterm public opposition to former president Donald Trump.”
In response, Del Rey wrote, “You’re proper it might have been pointless if nobody had considerably criticized the whole lot concerning the album to start with. However you probably did. And I would like revenge.”
What higher option to get revenge on the media than by making us work on July 4th.
