Known for her cinematic sound and melancholic themes, Del Rey is venturing into country territory, promising a blend of her signature style with country influences.

A New Direction

Lana Del Rey, originally Elizabeth Grant, has enjoyed a decade of success since her breakthrough hit “Video Games” in 2011. With a series of critically acclaimed albums under her belt, including “Norman Fucking Rockwell!” and “Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd“, Del Rey has established herself as a music industry powerhouse. Her upcoming album “Lasso” signifies a notable shift towards country music, a genre she has flirted with but is now fully embracing.

Anticipation Builds

The announcement was made at a pre-Grammys event hosted by Billboard in Los Angeles, where Del Rey hinted at the country direction of her new project. The album is being produced by Jack Antonoff, a critical collaborator in Del Rey’s recent works. While details about the full tracklist remain under wraps, Del Rey has teased fans with a snippet of a new song titled “Henry, Come On” through her Instagram, showcasing a country-leaning sound that has intrigued listeners.

In December 2023, Del Rey released a cover of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” further hinting at her exploration of country music. This cover, alongside performances of country classics at notable venues and events, has set the stage for “Lasso.”

Collaborations and Influences

Del Rey’s foray into country music has not been a solitary journey. She has shared stages with country artists like Nikki Lane, Meg Mcree, and Lukas Nelson, sparking speculation about potential collaborations on “Lasso”. Moreover, her friendship with country music star Lainey Wilson suggests the possibility of high-profile collaborations that could bridge the gap between Del Rey’s atmospheric pop and country’s storytelling tradition.

A Look Back and Ahead

Reflecting on her musical journey, Del Rey acknowledges the country elements in her earlier works, such as “Ride” and “Video Games“. With “Lasso,” she intends to explore these influences further, potentially including reworked versions of her previous hits with a country twist.

As Del Rey prepares to headline Coachella in 2024, her first appearance since 2014, anticipation for “Lasso” grows. The album’s release in September 2024 marks a new chapter in Del Rey’s illustrious career, promising to deliver a unique blend of country and pop that will captivate fans, old and new.
