Following the release of her new album Chemtrails Over The Country Club last week, Lana Del Rey has immediately announced a follow-up album called Rock Candy Sweet, which will arrive on June 1st.
Del Rey also shared a response to a Harper’s Bazaar article called “Lana Del Rey Can’t Qualify Her Way Out Of Being Held Accountable.”
“Just wanted 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 writes in an Instagram Story. “I will continue to challenge those thoughts on my next record June 1 titled Rock Candy Sweet.”
Additionally, Del Rey responded to some recent online controversies, where she said she’s “fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I’m just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent abusive relationships all over the world.”
With a screenshot of the article about the controversy, Del Rey said, “You’re right it would have been unnecessary if no one had significantly criticized everythin about the album to begin with. But you did. And I want revenge.”
