Lana Del Rey, the acclaimed singer-songwriter, has just revealed her upcoming project—a country album titled “Lasso,” scheduled for release in September. The exciting announcement took place at a pre-Grammys event hosted by Billboard, where Del Rey, present to honor producer Jack Antonoff, shared her enthusiasm for embracing the country music genre.
Delving into the Country Realm
During the event, Lana Del Rey expressed the industry’s shift toward country music, explaining, “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.” She highlighted her collaboration with Jack Antonoff, recounting their musical journey across iconic locations like Muscle Shoals, Nashville, and Mississippi over the past four years.
