Lana Del Rey 'Chemtrails Over The Country Club': Release date, concept, tracklist, teaser and all you need to know about her 7th album



 

She teased an album named Rock Candy Sweet, which was set to drop on June 1, a day after her 'Chemtrails Over the Country Club' release date. It's uncertain if that album has been delayed or whether a new 'Blue Banisters' title has taken its place. The photo used on both the songs appears to be one and the same, reported Rolling Stone.

Fans have earlier debated on Del Rey's usage of free photo-editing app PicsArt to create her album covers, according to Reddit posts, especially during the drop of her October 2020 song ‘Let Me Love You Like A Woman’. Here's what people are saying.



 

'Queen of PicsArt'

"Lana after posting the picsart album cover on a random Tuesday night at 11:38pm," one user said while sharing a meme that said 'It's so random. I can't believe I just did that'. Another dubbed her "Queen of PicsArt". Another used the same frame from PicsArt to create an edited image of their dog, saying: "Lana bestie, I try so hard and you music has gotten me through some hard times but I literally spent 10 minutes in picsart to create this."



 



 



 

'This can't be real'

One fan said, "Someone please take Lana's phone and delete PicsArt pleasee," adding the covers for 'Let me Love You Like A Woman' and 'Rock Candy Sweet'. "Imagine the visuals we'd be getting from lana if she actually cared.. like the chemtrails video?! why'd she snapped so hard just to go back to picsart covers," said another. "Lana must have a PicsArt partnership," a third chipped in.

"Lana Del Rey’s eighth studio album “Blue Banisters” is brought to you by PicsArt," said a fourth. "I beg of y’all to tell me that lana del rey is playing with is?!?!?! This can’t be the real cover," another said. One joked, "graphic design is her passion pls respect." Fans wondered whether the cover art is even real. "WHERE IS THE REAL LANA," said a Twitter user. "About the cover art... I don’t think that’s the real cover, maybe something temporary until they shoot the actual cover art - y’all are just overreacting. Be happy because we’re getting a SECOND record from Lana," said another.



 



 



 



 



 



 

 



 

 



 

Del Rey's 'Rock Candy Sweet' announcement followed a Harper's Bazaar report titled 'Lana Del Rey Can't Qualify Her Way Out of Being Held Accountable', a criticism of the singer’s alleged cultural appropriation.

“Just want to say thank you again for the kind articles like this one and for reminding me that my career was built on cultural appropriation and glamorizing domestic abuse,” Del Rey had said at the time via Instagram Stories. “I will continue to challenge those thoughts on my next record on June 1 titled Rock Candy Sweet.”
