“Chemtrails Over the Country Club” is the lead single and title track from Lana Del Rey’s 2021 album of the same name. The singer announced the release of the single the day before on social networks. Much like the new album, this song is very personal to Lana as it talks about her girlfriends, siblings, and her “professional” life in between.
Lana Del Rey announced the release of her seventh studio album ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’ in March 2021. She released the first promotional single, titled ‘Let Me Love You Like a Woman’ in October 2020.
In an interview with Interview Magazine, Lana Del Rey talked about the inspiration behind the song; “I hear ‘Chemtrails’ and I think ‘work’, but I also think of my gorgeous girlfriends, who the album is so much about, and my beautiful siblings. ‘Chemtrails’ is the title track because it mentions them all and mentions wanting so badly to be normal and realizing that when you have an overactive, eccentric mind, a record like Chemtrails is exactly what you’re going to get.

“Chemtrails Over the Country Club” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Recovering from this magical change of everything halfway through the song and video, we’ll try to break down what this song is about.
Throughout the song, Lana Del Rey fantasizes about her life in the Midwest with her lover.
The title of the song, ‘chemtrails’ is short for ‘chemical paths’ and is a conspiracy theory. It “posits the mistaken belief that long-lasting contrails are ‘chemtrails’ made up of chemical or biological agents left in the sky by high-flying aircraft, sprayed for nefarious purposes not disclosed to the general public”. In short, aircraft emissions, which usually appear as white streaks behind them, are believed to be gases deliberately emitted by authorities for undisclosed purposes.
Lana Del Rey invites her bae to live under those chemtrails at a country club. The underlying idea behind this is her wish to be carefree from the burdens of this world. While she acknowledges that there are so many problems in the world (highlighted by the ridiculous chemtrail conspiracy), she also wants to spend more time with her lover than worry about those problems. She even invites him to metaphorically remove his turquoise and jewelry, signaling his wish to get rid of material possessions. Lana just wants him and his presence next to her.
