Lana Del Rey has announced that her eighth studio album, Blue Banisters, will be available globally on July 4.

Following the release of Chemtrails Over The Country Club last month, the American pop star announced on Instagram that she would be sharing her seventh album, Rock Candy Sweet on June 1. The announcement came just days after she shared Chemtrails.

Del Rey also revealed in her Instagram Story that the Rock Candy Sweet album will address her past controversies – and will “challenge” accusations of cultural appropriation and romanticizing domestic abuse.

However, earlier this month, Del Rey teased something called ‘Blue Banisters’, and fans thought it was likely as track from Rock Candy Sweet. Posting on Instagram and Twitter on April 28, the singer-songwriter revealed that Blue Bannisters is, in fact, a full album. You can see the Tweet which features the cover art below.

Also in the pipeline from Del Rey is a covers album full of country songs, which she said she has two titles currently in mind for.

In March, the singer said: “I went back and listened to “Ride” and “Video Games” and thought, you know they’re kind of country. I mean, they’re definitely not pop.”

She continued: “Maybe the way “Video Games” got remastered, they’re pop – but there’s something Americana about it for sure. So let’s see how these things come out – I’m not going to have pedal steel guitar on every single thing, but it is easy for me to write.”

Del Rey later revealed to Music Week that she already has two titles in mind for the country project.

“Spending so much time in a close circle of country music friends, I could see one option for a title coming from that,” she explained. “I also have a secondary title I like that summed up 18 months of my life.”

Elsewhere in Lana Del Rey news, it was recently reported that Chemtrails Over The Country Club was among the best-selling vinyl albums of 2021 in the UK. The record has sold more than 17,300 copies on wax, with 16,700 of those bought in its first week. This makes Del Rey the female act with the fastest-selling vinyl album of the century in the UK.
