A logistics problem has led Lana del Rey to communicate the postponement to 2021 of what would have been his seventh studio album, Chemtrails Over The Country Club, and to advertise instead a work that will only see the light in digital format and that will contain standards Americans and Christmas classics.
In the repertoire, she has commented on Twitter, will include “songs by Patsy Cline and some of the ‘American’ genre he had in his pocket with Nikki Lane“, he said in reference to a couple of songs that he had prepared with the artist who opened some of the concerts of his previous tour and that did not become part of his last album.
In the list of this Christmas album with which he intends to compensate his followers there will also be his naked version of You’ll Never Walk Alone, included in turn in the soundtrack of a new documentary about the Liverpool football team.
As commented, the reason for the delay from Chemtrails Over The Country Clublies in the vinyl pressing plants, which will remain closed until the beginning of March, so their arrival in stores will not occur before “16 or 17 weeks”.
The album, he added, it is nevertheless “finished” and, according to his words, has a “folky and super different” airto its predecessor, the disc Normam Fucking Rockwell (2019), which was considered by the specialized press as one of the best in the world of its year of publication.
Just a few weeks ago he unveiled the first of the previews of this new album, Let Me Love You Like a Woman, slow cut, with a certain dreamlike resonance and minimal instrumentation, which mainly rests on the piano and the voice of its interpreter.
Written and produced by Lana Del Rey and Jack Antonoff, was recorded in Los Angeles at Conway Studios and in New York at Electric Lady Studios, presumably like the rest of the new work.
Since the beginning of her career in 2012 as Lana del Rey with the successful Born To Die (previously released the album King’s wool (2010) under her real name, Lizzy Grant), The American has been very active in record terms, with the publication of practically an album every one or two years.
