It's official, folks - Lana Del Rey is going country. The singer-songwriter confirmed during a Billboard pre-Grammy event that she'll be releasing a country album, Lasso, in September.

During her speech in honour of her frequent collaborator, Jack Antonoff, who was being given the Producer of the Year award for the third consecutive year, Lana shared how country has been taking over the industry, “If you can’t already tell by our award winners and our performers, the music business is going country”.

She went on to teased her new project, “We’re going country. It’s happening. That’s why Jack has followed me to Muscle Shoals, Nashville, Mississippi, over the last four years”.

The ‘Video Games’ hitmaker then revealed the name of her upcoming country record, ‘Lasso’, during the Billboard Power 100 Party 2024, which is “coming out in September”.

Like Lana Del Rey's 2023 album, Did you know that there's a tunnel under Ocean Blvd, the new country album appears to have been helmed by Antonoff, who continues to rack up a slew of impressive production credits, including Taylor Swift's Midnights.

Lana Del Rey has hinted at a foray into the world of country music in the past, with Lana having performed backing vocals for Lukas Nelson at The Ryman Auditorium towards the end of 2023, as well as posting a photo alongside Lainey Wilson, toasting her CMA Entertainer of the Year victory in November. Shortly after this, Lana released a cover of John Denver's classic anthem, ’Take Me Home, Country Roads’.

Lana joins Post Malone as some of the biggest names in Pop and Hip Hop venture into country, which has a new allure following the Hot 100 success of Morgan Wallen, Zach Bryan and more.

Post Malone performed ‘Pick-Up Man’ at the 2023 CMA Awards alongside Morgan and HARDY, and is readying his own country album, which is set to drop this year.
