Lana Del Rey to Release “Blue Banisters” in October
Lana Del Rey is set to release her eighth studio album, Blue Banisters, next month on October 22.
The 36-year-old star took to social media to share a brand new track called "Arcadia", with an accompanying visual. Del Rey wrote and produced it with Drew Erickson. She thanked Charles Grant and Chris Ripley for their camera work on Arcadia. Watch her self-directed "Arcadia" video below.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter announced Blue Banisters earlier in April this year, suggesting originally that it was to be released on July 4. She had also teased something called Rock Candy Sweet, but no other imformation followed.
Between 2019’s Norman Fucking Rockwell! and the more recent Chemtrails Over the Country Club, Del Rey also published her first collection of poetry, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass (see below), along with an audiobook counterpart which she produced with Jack Antonoff.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that she has been secretly planning something special for her fans. One of her managers, Ed Millett, was questioned about the possibility of the "White Dress" singer doing a live-stream like Dua Lipa's 'Studio 2054' extravaganza and he spilled that she has had something in the works for some time now, but wouldn't divulge what exactly or when it is expected to go ahead.
Blue Banisters is available to pre-order now here. The upcoming LP includes the previously released singles "Wildflower Wildfire", "Blue Banisters" and "Text Book".
Del Rey's accolades include two Brit Awards, two MTV Europe Music Awards, a Satellite Award, nine GAFFA Awards, six Grammy Award nominations, and a Golden Globe nomination.
