Lana Del Rey Announces ‘Lust For Life’ Album Release Date
Lana Del Rey has announced the release date for Lust for Life. “July 21 fam,” she said on Twitter, only adding “No prob baby” to a fan who said “thanks mom.” Since then, though, a rep for Lana has confirmed the July 21 drop date with The FADER.

It’s hard to imagine waiting that much longer for Lana’s new album, given that her current era began in February. That is when she released “Love” — a surprisingly uplifting song, considering how she is perhaps best known for wallowing. But to be fair, Lana has been pretty generous ever since. She announced Lust for Life in March with a retro, sci-fi inspired trailer, taking place inside the “H” of the Hollywood sign. She also released the title track, featuring The Weeknd, and debuted the unreleased “Cherry” at KROQ Weenie Roast Y Fiesta.
Lana has also shared plenty on what to expect. Most recently, she revealed the title of her Stevie Nicks collaboration, the too-good-to-be-true “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.” You can thank producer Rick Nowels for hooking Lana up with the rock legend.
“I kind of thought I had finished the record a couple of times and then, one of those times, I really just felt like I wanted a woman on the record,” Lana said to KROQ. “We both kind of could only come up with Stevie. Funny enough, [Rick] went to high school with her and he wrote his first hit with her.”
