After teasing her fans for almost a year, singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey finally shared the official cover art and tracklist of her seventh studio album titled ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club'. The songstress also dropped the title track with a very aesthetic video on her official YouTube Channel.

The 35-year-old crooner is known for her stylized, cinematic quality videos with themes of sadness, tragic romance, along with references to pop culture, particularly from the era of 1950s and 1960s. The ‘Summertime Sadness’ hitmaker most recently sat with BBC Radio 1 for an interview where she revealed that after her new album she has no idea what will be her next record, and this has sent her loyal fans into confusion about whether this will be her last record.

Will Lana Del Rey not drop another album?

A Twitter fan page dedicated to the popular singer, which time and again shares reliable news about Lana, shared a post on the micro-blogging site from the singer’s latest interview and spoke about the multiple-award winning singer not being sure about her next project. The tweet read, “Lana Del Rey has revealed that for the first time in her career she has no general idea for her next record (usually when she releases an album she has about 4 songs ready for the next one) and that her latest controversies have negative effect on her creative process.”

Fan reactions

A lot of social media users also felt the same and discussed how Lana deserves a break. One fan posted, “Since she announced this album, I’ve sensed it’s gonna be her last." Another expressed, “I thought so too at first but i dont think so anymore, her heart still seems to be in it.” One user stated, “thats because everyone attacks her, spread misinformation about her, body shame her.. poor Lana.” Another added, “And she really deserves a break, specially from social media.” One individual posted, “I feel like she's reaching her limit and it's totally understandable. I honestly don't mind a cover album and in the meantime she writes her poetry and relaxes. She needs rest time too. She's worked so hard this past decade.” Another said, “She needs to go back to being mysterious and no more essays.”

During the same BBC Radio 1 interview, the singer also spoke about Donald Trump and the recent unfortunate riot at Capitol Hill. According to the website NME, she asserted, “The madness of Trump, as bad as it was, it really needed to happen. We really needed a reflection of our world’s greatest problem, which is not climate change, but sociopathy and narcissism. Especially in America. It’s going to kill the world. It’s not capitalism, it’s narcissism.” She added, “I was surprised we didn’t have a live-television psychopath crazy person as a president a long time ago because that’s what we see on TV and that’s what we see on Instagram. A lot of really self-obsessed influencers… Not to say that there’s not some also really cute, great, happy-go-lucky influencers that have taught me about crockpots and Target hauls and all the things that have really cheered up my life.”

Apart from her comment on Trump, the singer was also in the news for her lack of diversity on the cover art of her new album 'Chemtrails Over the Country Club'. The hashtag “#Lanaisracist” was soon trending on Twitter after the singer shared the album artwork on social media. Taking on the matter, she shared a lengthy comment on Instagram where she bluntly expressed her opinion.

She wrote, “I also want to say that with everything going on this year! And no this was not intended-these are my best friends, since you are asking today. And damn! As it happens when it comes to my amazing friends and this cover yes there are people of color on this records picture and that’s all I’ll say about that but thank you. My beautiful friend Valerie from Del Rio Mexico, my dearest friend Alex and my gorgeous friend Dakota Rain as well as my sweetheart Tatiana. these are my friends this is my life. We are all a beautiful mix of everything - some more than others which is visible and celebrated in everything I do. In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without even trying to. My best friends are rappers my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, I’m not the one storming the capital, I’m literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it.”
