On March 20th, 2021, Lana Del Rey posted to Instagram announcing her next release titled "Rock Candy Sweet" to be released June 1st. At first it was believed to be an album, but since Blue Banisters' announcement, it is now believed to be a possible song/lyric from the retitled album. Exactly what this announcement was for and the exact nature of the "Rock Candy Sweet" project is currently unclear and unknown.

In early March of 2020, Lana revealed to MusicWeek magazine that she is working on two albums, one of which she already has a title in mind for.

“She’s already got two albums in mind, I think,” says [her manager] Ed Millett.
So, are there already words or titles that Lana is homing in on?

“Spending so much time in a close circle of country music friends, I could see one option for a title coming from that,” she hints. “I also have a secondary title I like that summed up 18 months of my life.”

 

 

 

 

What we know so far:

-  Lana originally announced the record 'Rock Candy Sweet' in response to an article by Harpers Bazzar, where she stated she would be "Challenging those thoughts [about her career being built on cultural appropriation and glamourising domestic abuse"] in her upcoming record. In the same announcement, she also stated that she "wants revenge."

- Producer Mike Dean will be working on the project. In an interview with Fantano, he confirmed he was working on songs for her upcoming record. When asked if he was going to incorporate either piano & strings or synths in the production, he stated "I would mesh them both I think. You got to stay true to the original, but you can definitely do your twist on it, you know?"

- The first three singles from the album titled 'Blue Banisters', 'Text Book', and 'Wildflower Wildfire' are rumoured to drop on Thursday, May 20th according to a reliable insider. The singles are said to all have the same car selfie as the cover edited in different ways.

- Other producers/composers that are involved include Gabriel Edward Simon, Sage Skolfield, and Sean Solymar.

- The album will be piano-led and features many "pretty ballads" as per an insider.

-The album will contain more than 11 tracks as per an insider.
