Good news for us that the thirty-five-year-old will be releasing her new seventh album only one-and-a-half years after her previous work, Norman Fucking Rockwell. Two singles from Chemtrails over the Country Club have already been released – with Lana Del Rey’s typically mystical sound (and classic cars in the videos). Yes, there have been heated debates over her attitude to feminism and Trump in recent months.

Lana Del Rey: Chemtrails over the Country Club. Urban. Available as download, CD, vinyl or stream.

A Bigger Splash

David Hockney painted it, directors like François Ozon dedicated entire films to it - and many of photographer Tony Kelly's motifs were also created at the swimming pool. But it's not only in pop culture that the artificial place to cool off is in demand - it's also on days like today. A small case study.
