It's been a busy week of release announcements in the pop world, as the inevitable bursts of ongoing lockdown productivity continue.

Following yesterday's news that alternative-pop crossover sensation Billie Eilish is preparing her next album for a July 4th release, US singer-songwriter Lana del Rey today announced her next long-player, entitled Blue Bannisters.

It's a very quick follow-up to her last album, Chemtrails Over the Country Club, released to streaming services in March.

Prior to lockdown, the American hitmaker had been on a roll: 2019 album Norman F**king Rockwell! came in for critical and commercial success, and her first book of poetry, 'Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass', received a spoken-word album edition in July of last year.
