Lana Del Rey has elaborated on the cover art of her forthcoming album ‘Chemtrails Over The Country Club’, appearing to pre-emptively respond to criticism about the diversity of the group of people it depicts.
The singer unveiled the artwork and the tracklist for the record late Sunday night (January 10). It features Del Rey and a number of other women gathered around a table smiling.
She also left an Instagram comment elaborating on the cover art, starting the message, “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,” Del Rey added.

Steele may hail from the fertile pop landscape of Sweden, but she’s not your typical star.
Having recently recovered from a life-threatening bout of meningitis which left her with epilepsy, Sara Steele has made some serious lifestyle and career adjustments. Aside from waving goodbye to smoking and drinking, the singer pledged to follow her instincts when it came to music.
The result is a groundbreaking album, aptly titled ‘Paroxysm’- which means an outburst of emotion. The record, due out June 13, has been prefaced with a handful of devastatingly candid singles that categorize her alongside the likes of Banks and Lana Del Rey.
Channeling the surging synths and industrial beats of the former, and the sultry vocals of the latter, Steele produces her own brand of retrospective slow burners. Each cinematic track is buoyed by waves of melancholy that rise and break, washing over the sonic surroundings. Though Steele’s brush with death may be responsible for the depth and blackness at the heart of her tracks, it may also be the thing to breathe a new lease of life into pop music.
