Lana Del Rey never makes her fans wait long, does she? Although she only just released her latest album, Chemtrails Over The Country Club, yesterday, she’s already talking about its followup. Apparently, fans can expect to get Rock Candy Sweet in June!
In a new Instagram post, Lana simply shared, “ROCK CANDY 🍭 SWEET – June 1.”
However, in an Instagram story, Lana wrote out more, saying:
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. I will continue to challenge those thoughts on my next record on June 1 titled ROCK CANDY 🍭 SWEET.
We’re assuming Rock Candy Sweet is an album, although it’s possible that it’s just a single. If it is an album, though, it seems unlikely that its release date will indeed be June 1st, as that’s a Tuesday. Albums come out on Fridays worldwide. In any case, we can expect to hear new music from Lana at some point in June this year.
Check out both Lana’s announcement post and Instagram story below:
Chemtrails Over The Country Club
With all this talk about Rock Candy Sweet, let’s not forget that Lana just put out an album yesterday. Chemtrails Over The Country Club isn’t our favorite from her (sorry), but fans are loving it and the album does have its highlights. Songs like “White Dress,” “Dark But Just A Game,” and “Yosemite” are why we love Lana Del Rey.
You can stream or buy Chemtrails Over The Country Club from all the major music providers here. It features the singles “Let Me Love You Like A Woman,” “Chemtrails Over The Country Club,” and “White Dress,” as well as anticipated songs like “Tulsa Jesus Freak,” “Yosemite,” and her cover of Joni Mitchell’s “For Free.”
Upcoming Covers Album & More Music
In November 2020, Lana told fans she would release a new covers album by Christmas. It would include American standards and classics. Lana decided to share this digital album because Chemtrails Over The Country Club had been delayed to 2021. However, the holidays came and went and we still have not gotten any such covers album. We only got Lana’s cover of “Summertime The Gershwin Version” in November; it may appear on her covers album, if and when it arrives.
Beyond her own music, Lana appeared on an updated version of Matt Maeson’s single “Hallucinogenics” last fall.
Lana also has a film scoring project coming up, which will gift fans even more music. She’s composing for the upcoming film adaptation of Lewis Carroll novel Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.
Last July, Lana released the audiobook version of her first poetry collection, Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass. The physical and ebook versions were published on September 29th, with the audiobook on CD and vinyl out October 2nd. You can purchase Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass from the major audiobook providers here. Alternately, you can also get the spoken poems on CD, vinyl, or picture disc from Lana’s official site. You can also order the hardcover book or ebook from the major book retailers now. Both the hardcover and ebook feature more than 30 poems – over double what was included in the audiobook format.
Lana is set to release her second poetry book, titled Behind The Iron Gates – Insights From An Institution, soon.
