In a recent interview with W Magazine, Del Rey discussed the colours and mystique featured on her previous albums, particularly on Honeymoon. "For this new music, there’s none of that at all. It’s more just like: I’m angry," she said. 

The Summertime Sadness singer added, "The songs are very conversational. For the first song, I pressed record and sang, 'When I look back, tracing fingertips over plastic bags, I think I wish I could extrapolate some small intention or maybe get your attention for a minute or two.' It’s a very wordy album. So there’s no room for colour. It’s almost like I’m typing in my mind."

Known for cinematic musical scope, dream-pop vocals, and critiques of contemporary pop culture from the 1950s and 1960s, Del Rey has developed a cult base of listeners and critical acclaim for her eight albums.

Her new album is the follow-up to her 2021 records Chemtrails Over The Country Club and Blue Banisters. It will feature collaborations with producers Jack Antonoff, Drew Erickson and Zach Dawes, engineer Laura Sisk, as well as guest vocalists Jon Batiste, Father John Misty, and Tommy Genesis.

Del Rey has released the title track to her upcoming album; watch the music video below. Pre-order Did You Know That There's A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd here.
