Lana Del Rey has announced the follow-up album to Chemtrails Over the Country Club. Her upcoming album, Blue Banisters, is slated to arrive on July 4th, according to her posts on social media.
In March, a day after her Chemtrails Over the Country Club release date, she had teased an album called Rock Candy Sweet, which was touted to arrive on June 1st. It’s unclear if that album has been postponed or if it has been replaced with a new Blue Banisters title. The artwork the singer shared, which features her photo, appears to be the same image for both Rock Candy Sweet and Blue Banisters.
Chemtrails Over the Country Club followed 2019’s Norman Fucking Rockwell! and the singer’s first collection of poetry, which she released in print and audiobook editions last year. Chemtrails was led by “White Dress” and the album’s title track. She performed “Let Me Love You Like a Woman” on Fallon in December.

In an Instagram post on April 28, Del Rey confirmed that she would put out the album’Blue Banisters’ on July 4 – Independence Day in the United States. This will be her eighth studio album, following March’s ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’.
The announcement post comes with an edited image of the singer with ‘Blue Banisters’ in text. See it below:
Her Rock Candy Sweet announcement came on the heels of Harper’s Bazaar article “Lana Del Rey Can’t Qualify Her Way Out of Being Held Accountable,” which was critical of the singer’s cultural appropriation.
“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,” Del Rey said at the time via Instagram Stories. “I will continue to challenge those thoughts on my next record on June 1 titled Rock Candy Sweet.”
‘Brain Banisters’ will be her 3rd album of the year
Should the Blue Banisters LP drop on Independence Day, it would be her third album release in a year following the March release of Chemtrails Over the Country Club, and her spoken word LP, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, which arrived last July.
Earlier this month, Del Rey had teased something called ‘Blue Banisters’, which fans speculated was a new song from ‘Rock Candy Sweet’.
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. 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.
