Despite her seventh studio album, ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club,’ only being released on March 19, Lana Del Rey has already revealed that her eighth studio album will be titled ‘Rock Candy Sweet’ and will be released June 1. While giving interviews before the release of ‘COTCC,’ Lana revealed she was working on that and another album at the same time, which explains why another album could be ready so soon.
The announcement came as a surprise on Instagram when responding to criticism from an article in Harper’s Bazaar titled “Lana Del Rey Can’t Qualify Her Way Out of Being Held Accountable.” In response, Lana said:
“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.”
Lana then referenced part of the article specifically. Lana highlighted the author who said “nobody had significantly criticized Del Rey for ‘including’ people of color in her upcoming album, and her need to disassociate herself from the Nazi-led riot on Capitol Hill was also curious…” In Lana’s response to this, she said: “You’re right it would have been unnecessary if no one had significantly criticized everything about the album to begin with. But you did. And I want revenge.”
