Earlier this year, Lana Del Rey teased that she’d be released a new album called Chemtrails Over the Country Club on September 5. Well, September 5 has come and gone, but the wait for Chemtrails shouldn’t be too long.

In a discussion with Jack Antonoff, who’s producing Chemtrails, for Interview Magazine, Del Rey reveals that the record is “incredibly close” to being finished. She also shares that she’s been “really stressed” about Chemtrails, which follows 2019’s Antonoff-produced, Grammy-nominated Norman F***ing Rockwell.

“From the top, we knew what Norman was,” Del Rey explains. “But with Chemtrails, it was like, ‘Is this new folk? Oh, god, are we going country?'”

Del Rey adds that she now feels “really good” about the record, and reveals that its “defining moment” is a song called “White Dress/Waitress.”

While you wait for Chemtrails to arrive, you can listen to Del Rey’s spoken word album Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass. The collection of original poems will be available as a hardcover book on September 29.
