Lana Del Rey has finally revealed the release date for her upcoming new album, ‘Blue Banisters’ – listen to new song, ‘ARCADIA’, below.
Set to be released on October 22, the singer-songwriter’s long-teased forthcoming LP is the follow-up to ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’, which arrived earlier this year.
The ‘White Dress’ singer previewed the new album in May with the surprise release of a trio of new singles: the album’s title track as well as ‘Text Book’ and ‘Wildflower Wildfire’, which were all written by the singer and recorded in Los Angeles.
Now, after teasing its release earlier this week, Del Rey has unveiled her new single, ‘ARCADIA’, which she wrote and produced with Drew Erickson.
Accompanied by a set of visuals directed by Del Rey herself, you can watch the video for ‘ARCADIA’ below:
‘Blue Banisters’ arrives on October 22 and can be pre-ordered here. Made up of 15 tracks, it will be released as CD and cassette, with various exclusive vinyl formats that can be found on Del Rey’s official website. Take a look at the album’s artwork and tracklist below.

Prior to announcing ‘Blue Banisters’, Del Rey said she would release an album called ‘Rock Candy Sweet’ on June 1. She explained just days after ‘Chemtrails…’ arrived in March that this project would challenge the accusations of “cultural appropriation and glamorising domestic abuse” made against her earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Del Rey has revealed that a stipulation in her will prohibits the release of posthumous music by the singer-songwriter following her death.
It comes after Anderson .Paak recently shared a new tattoo he got with similar sentiments. “When I’m gone, please don’t release any posthumous albums or songs with my name attached,” the forearm tattoo reads. “Those were just demos and never intended to be heard by the public.”
Del Rey shared a screenshot of the tattoo in a post on her Instagram account. “It’s in my will but it’s also on his tattoo,” she captioned the post.
