The day after Lana Del Rey released her long-teased album Chemtrails Over The Country Club, she declared another called Rock Candy Sweet. Set for release June 1, the album was to correct “revenge” for the scrutiny identified with Del Rey’s new debates while challenging the idea “that my career was built on cultural appropriation and glamorizing domestic abuse.”
Either Del Rey is presently planning a third album for 2021 or her Rock Candy Sweet project has developed. The previous evening she reported an album called Blue Banisters would be dropping on July 4, an ideal release date for an artist so obsessed on the American mythos. No further subtleties have been uncovered up until this point.
The cover art features a similar photograph from Rock Candy Sweet, so it’s conceivable that this is a similar album with another title. Blue Banisters could likewise be the advanced just album of “American standards and classics” that she was apparently going to release around Christmas a year ago to hold fans over while they waited for Chemtrails. This would likewise fit with the July 4 release date. In any case, it appears to be LDR’s fans and haters will not need to stand by long for more music.
Under 24 hours after the fact, Del Rey has posted a 30-second clip from a music video for a song featuring the words “blue banister.” It’s captioned, “I’m writing my own story. And no one can tell it but me” — which lends credence to the possibility that Blue Banisters is Rock Candy Sweet under a new name.
