Everyone’s favorite sultry songstress Lana Del Rey has invited us into her fantasized vision of Americana once more with her sixth album Chemtrails Over the Country Club.

Past albums portray Del Rey as a melancholic romantic yearning for a time before, however, with Chemtrails Over the Country Club, she becomes more realistic while maintaining her air of nostalgia — in short, it’s a bit of an oxymoron. With this in mind, the singer has left an era of orchestral songs from her “Young and Beautiful” period and replaces this with plenty of acoustics and delicate percussion that complements a raw-sounding Lana, one which seems to be speaking about more truthful subjects as depicted in songs such as “White Dress.”

“White Dress” is the opening song on the album, harking back to a time when she was a waitress and, in typical form, it romanticizes this as something she longs for. However, “White Dress” also feels like she’s paying respect to it, as the album goes on it becomes increasingly impactful in the way Del Rey tells her stories.

“Let Me Love You Like A Woman” is arguably one of the best songs on the album, with her vocals clear and the styling quintessentially Del Rey. Lyrics such as “I come from a small town far away/I only mention it ’cause I’m ready to leave LA/And I want (need) you to come/I guess I could manage if you stay” explore the usual side of Lana, while her delivery is far more punctuated which makes the hit a strong number.

Immediately after is “Wild at Heart,” which slows down the pace of Chemtrails Over the Country Club and goes on to show how the album is Del Rey’s most vulnerable to date. Between this and the standout final song “For Free” featuring Zella Day and Weyes Blood, the album picks up pace and drops back down, all while telling Lana’s most honest story.

Listen to Lana Del Rey’s highly-anticipated Chemtrails Over the Country Club on streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music now.

In other news, Coachella has been reportedly rescheduled for 2022.
