Lana Del Rey Reveals Release Date for New Album “Blue Bannisters”, Shares New Song “Arcadia”
- American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey has announced a new release date for her upcoming eighth studio album “Blue Bannisters”, which was originally scheduled for July 4 but abruptly bumped days before its release.
The new album is set to be released on October 22, 2021. A vinyl release of the album will follow a week later.
From the album, she dropped a new song “Arcadia” along with a music video, which is a characteristic ballad full of references to love and Los Angeles.
She wrote and produced the song with Drew Erickson. Also, she directed the video.
Lana Del Rey shared on social media, “I guess you could say this album is about what it was like, what happened, and what it’s like now. If you’re interested go back and listen to the first three songs I put out earlier. They chronicle the beginning. This song hits somewhere in the middle and by the time the record drops you will hear where we’re at today.”
She continued, “As much as the on going criticism has been trying, it at least has pushed me to explore my own family tree, to dig deep, and to continue to exhibit the fact that God only cares about how I move through the world.
And for all of the skepticism about feigning fragility and unreasonable explanations of not showing general accountability- I must say I’ve enjoyed moving through the world beautifully- as a woman with grace and dignity.”
She added, “Thank you to my friends over the last 18 years who have been an example of attraction not promotion. I’ve never felt the need to promote myself or tell my story, but if you’re interested this album does tell it- and does pretty much nothing more.”
