Lana Del Rey has proven herself to be an extremely talented artist through the years. Her eight studio albums have been successful in highlighting her talents as a singer and a lyricist. After much anticipation, Lana Del Rey will be releasing her next album on March 24th, 2023. 


Lana Del Rey is known for her alternative music that often defies the norm and explores dark themes. She is associated with the genre of Americana, singing about American culture. She often writes songs about love, money, and glamor. It is expected that this album will follow in those footsteps. 


In December of 2022, Lana announced that she would be releasing the new album. The album, Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd, was originally supposed to be released on March 10th but she pushed the release date of the project back to the 24th. The album will have 16 tracks, and two of them are already available to be listened to. 


Lana has released two singles so far, including the title track. The first single, Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd, was released upon the announcement of the album. It is very consistent with Lana’s recent work and has impressive lyricism. Her second single, A&W, differed from the first by consisting of two distinct parts. The second part was much like Lana’s old music, upbeat and fun. This begs the question of what this new album will bring.
