Lana Del Rey returns to her roots with Blue Banisters
Lana Del Rey sings about triumphant love in her new version.
Los Angeles, CA – A long time Lana del rey Fans are crying out for: the artist’s eighth studio album, Blue Banisters.
It looks like Lana Del Rey used a lot of her time during the Covid-19 pandemic to write songs and make new music, and her fans aren’t complaining.
Blue Banisters was released on Friday and is the indie rocker’s second album to release this year, following Chemtrails over the Country Club, which debuted in March.
But longtime fans of the New York native might feel more drawn to her latest outing than others in recent years, and with good reason.

For all intents and purposes, Blue Banisters feels like the folks at Lana Del Rey fell in love early in her career.
With song structures that barely follow the cut-and-paste standard often used by Top 40 artists, Blue Banisters is honest, raw, and real in every way it can.
The 36-year-old has had no problem showing off her growth as a songwriter while still managing to stay true to the roots that set her apart from most other songwriters in the industry.
The artist’s eighth studio album has a stripped down feel, something missing from his recent discography.
With haunting piano solos on some tracks and blaring horns on others, Blue Banisters relies on various musical instruments to transport listeners from start to finish.
From the second it begins, the track Beautiful gives off the same sonic ambience as its previous mega-hit, Young and Beautiful.

In the 2013 single, Del Ray asked if his interested sweetheart “will still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful.”
But the new song Beautiful takes a whole different point of view. Rather than asking if anyone will like her, Lana Del Rey assumes a confident stance, my lesson learned, singing, âThen I’ll be who I will be. If you think that’s cool, then I’ll bring you back. “
The same assured energy emanates from the song Violets For Roses. Rather than yearning for someone’s love or forgiveness, the singer hums about finding her true self in the wake of lost love.
“Since I am no longer in love with you, I fell in love with the streets again, and God, is that sweet,” she sings.
Lyrically, the new album comes from that different perspective of a relationship – of someone who loved and learned, and who came out triumphant.
It’s no small feat to release a 15-song album and have each track resonate with listeners, but it’s something Lana Del Rey seems to have accomplished with Blue Banisters.
While not tour dates have yet been set for the album, they are surely imminent in the near future.
