'Never forgive, always forget': Lana Del Rey teases 'Chemtrails Over the Country Club' album with new photos
Lana Del Rey continues to share aesthetics and themes of her long-awaited album and this time on the subject of forgiveness
It looks like the release date for Lana Del Rey's long-awaited full-length is just on the horizon as the dream-pop star continues to tease the highly anticipated project. Del Rey has been active on her social media as of late in light of the upcoming LP 'Chemtrails Over The Country Club' and this time, the singer teased the album with a photo and what appears to be album artwork.
in the first of three posts on Instagram, presented in a minimalist style, we see the album's title written in red font over a white background and underlined by a rose. The second post is a photo that features two roses held close to Del Rey's chest. On one rose, the words "NEVER FORGIVE" are impressive, and on the other "ALWAYS FORGET": a kind of inverted version of the famous expression, "always forgive but never forget."
Earlier, toward the end of December, Del Rey shared a cryptic trailer for the album. The eery half-minute clip features steamy and bizarre visuals of Del Rey before the singer begins transforming into a werewolf. Additionally, at the end of the trailer, a release date has been given for a new song (the album's self-titled single) and for the album pre-order: on January 11.

Lana Del Rey released the first single from the LP, titled 'Let Me Love You Like A Woman', in October and performed the song on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' last month. In a video shared by Pop Crave in November, she updated fans on the album's current progress saying that it is finished. She also described it, saying, "It's folky, it's beautiful, it's super different from Norman [F***ing Rockwell]," referencing her latest album.
In the clip, she also explained the reason for the album's delay, citing a 16-week vinyl manufacturing production lag. She noted that the issue "probably goes for a lot of people on Interscope." Del Rey continued, "I was stressed out when I found out about the production taking 16 to 17 weeks." "It is what it is, but in the meantime, I have some Patsy Cline songs I've been wanting to cover for a long time, and some Americana songs I've done with Nikki Lane."
That being said, it's probably safe to say that Del Rey is eager to release 'Chemtrails Over The Country Club' and will share the release date as soon as the manufacturing issues are sorted.
