Lana Del Rey Shares New Video For ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’

This past weekend, Lana Del Rey shared the cover art and tracklisting for her upcoming album, Chemtrails Over the Country Club. Now, she’s shared the title track, along with a retro-inspired music video.

Looking like a home movie ripped from 1960s Hollywood, the clip shows Del Rey cruising the streets in a vintage Mercedes-Benz and hanging out at the pool with her posh friends. It looks like a glamorous day until Del Rey and her friends turn into werewolves at the video’s end.

Watch it below.

“Chemtrails Over the Country Club” follows the previously released single “Let Me Love You Like a Woman.” Del Rey previously announced the release of the single last month. She recently revealed that the album will be released on March 19th. Pre-order it here.

Del Rey took Instagram to explain the significance behind the upcoming album’s artwork and promptly caused a backlash with a tone that came off as “I have black friends I swear.”

“In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without even trying to,” she wrote on Instagram, adding, “My best friends are rappers my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, I’m not the one storming the capital, I’m literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it.”

This isn’t the first time Del Rey’s comments have gotten her in trouble. She received criticism last year after advocating for fragility that came off as racist. Maybe it’s time for her to step away from social media for a bit.
