Lana Del Rey just announced that she has new music on the way, but the one thing that people can’t seem to stop talking about right now is a comment she wrote on her Instagram page.
The 35-year-old singer took to social media on Sunday (January 10) to reveal that her album Chemtrails Over the Country Club is on the way.
A music video for the title track is expected to debut this week.
The album cover for Chemtrails Over the Country Club features Lana sitting around a picnic table with her friends. She commented on the post she put up with the cover to seemingly preempt any backlash that she might receive for the cover.

“I also want to say that with everything going on this year! And no this was not intended-these are my best friends, since you are asking today. And damn! As it happens when it comes to my amazing friends and this cover yes there are people of color on this records picture and that’s all I’ll say about that,” Lana said in the comment.
She continued, “but thank you. My beautiful friend Valerie from Del Rio Mexico, my dearest friend Alex and my gorgeous friend Dakota Rain as well as my sweetheart Tatiana. these are my friends this is my life. We are all a beautiful mix of everything- some more than others which is visible and celebrated in everything I do. In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without even trying to. My best friends are rappers my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, I’m not the one storming the capital, I’m literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it.”
Lana is currently a trending topic on Twitter and the social media site explained the trend by saying, “Lana Del Rey reveals the artwork for her latest album Chemtrails Over the Country Club, along with a lengthy social media post explaining the reasons behind the cover.”
