Several media and music critics who have had the opportunity to listen to Lana Del Rey’s three newest songs predict that the musician is trying to pour a deeper personal side to strengthen the theme and concept of the eighth album. The three new songs released by Lana Del Rey are considered to have the same nuance from one of the songs from her seventh album, White Dress, which tells about the musician’s past when he was trying to become a professional singer in his youth. Even some of the media and critics consider that these three latest songs by Lana Del Rey seem to complete the puzzle about her past life before becoming a star thanks to the success of the album Born To Die.

For a song called Wildflower Wildfire, Lana Del Rey tries to dig deeper into her past. The song tells about her childhood, Lana Del Rey dedicates the message of the song to her mother.

The song broadly discusses Lana Del Rey’s love life with her current fiancé. However, Lana Del Rey admits that she finds similarities in the characteristics of her father in her partner.

With the release of 3 songs and plans to promote the fourth single, it can be said that Lana Del Rey is one of the most prolific musicians. It seems that Lana Del Rey is one of the musicians who are quite passionate about ensuring that her music project plans run smoothly. The reason is, before announcing the news about the Blue Banisters, Lana Del Rey had just released her seventh album entitled Chemtrails Over the Country Club in March.

Even so, releasing two albums in a period of one year is indeed not something foreign to musicians during a pandemic. Because in 2020 there were also several musicians who successfully tried to carry out this strategy. The eighth album from Lana Del Rey is also quite special because the musician plans to release his album on the United States independence day which falls on July 4, 2021.
