Del Rey had previously said she would release an album titled ‘Rock Candy Sweet’ on June 1. The announcement came days after she put out ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’ on March 19. ‘Rock Candy Sweet’, she said, would challenge accusations of “cultural appropriation and glamorising domestic abuse”.

Earlier this month, Del Rey had teased something called ‘Blue Banisters’, which fans speculated was a new song from ‘Rock Candy Sweet’.

Also in the pipeline from Del Rey is a covers album full of country songs, which she said she has two titles currently in mind for.
