Shortly after sharing the title track of her new album, Chemtrails Over the Country Club, earlier today, Lana Del Rey spoke with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Annie Mac, as Stereogum points out. They covered a lot of ground, touching on Wednesday's riot at the US Capitol, Donald Trump, COVID-19, Lana's statement about diversity on the Chemtrails cover, and more.
"Before I even put the album cover up, I knew what people were going to say. So when they actually started saying things, I responded and I just said, ‘I got a lot of issues but inclusivity ain’t one of them,’" Lana said. "It just isn’t. You can’t just make it my problem. My friends, my family, my whatever... They’re not all one way and we’re not the ones storming the Capitol. We voted for Biden. My girlfriends come from all over the world, they have children from all different types of people. And I’m mentioning all this, like, to people who are listening because people really wanted even more people of color on my album cover. Which you know is, to a point, a photo just is what it is."
