Lana Del Rey has shared details of her new album, titled ‘Lasso,’ confirming that the upcoming project will see her venture into the country-music genre. ‘Lasso’ will mark Del Rey’s 10th studio album, following last year’s ‘Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd’.

‘Lasso’ will feature Lana’s regular collaborator, producer and ‘Bleachers’ frontman Jack Antonoff, as well as country music maker Luke Laird.  Said Lana: “If you can’t already tell by our award winners and our performers, the music business is going country. We’re going country. It’s happening. That’s why Jack has followed me to Muscle Shoals, Nashville, Mississippi, over the last four years.”  While a specific release date has not been announced, Del Rey revealed that ‘Lasso’ will be arriving at some point this September.

This isn’t the first time that Lana will venture into the country music genre; last December, Del Rey shared a cover of the John Denver classic ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’. The previous month, she performed a cover of Elvis‘ 1977 song ‘Unchained Melody’ during the NBC‘s Christmas at Graceland broadcast, and she also performed a rendition of ‘Stand By Your Man’, originally released by Tammy Wynette in 1969, back in September. Most recently, Lana previewed a new country song, ‘Henry, Come On’, on her social media.

In other news, Lana will headline several festivals this summer, including ‘Reading & Leeds’ alongside Liam Gallagher and Blink-182, ‘Primavera Sound’, also featuring The National, Pulp and SZA, ‘Hangout Festival’ with ODESZA and Zach Bryan, and ‘Coachella’ alongside Tyler, The Creator and Doja Cat.
