Lana Del Rey’s taco truck showed up in London today to mark the release of her new album “Did You Know There’s a Tunnel under Ocean Boulevard” today (March 24)
A food van appeared near Kings Cross Station, apparently in connection with the song “Taco Truck x VB”, which appears as the last track on Del Rey’s ninth album.
According to photos of fans who passed by the truck, he was selling Ocean Blvd fish tacos, vegan tacos with pepper (according to the song), Mexican hot chocolate with vanilla and orange called Sweet and candy necklaces. .
The album is a follow-up to “Chemtrails Over The Country Club” and “Blue Banisters” 2021 and includes the singles “The Grants”, “A&W” and the title track. It also includes a collaboration with Father John Misty and Tommy Genesis and the previously announced song “Margaret”, dedicated to the fiancee of producer Jack Antonoff, actress Margaret Qually.

In a four-star review, “Did you Know there’s a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard,” NME wrote: “On Ocean Boulevard, she talks about her life now, pondering big questions and thinking about her family, home and her future. The songs reference each other, returning to earlier thoughts and feelings, creating the feeling that you are with her in her daily life when she reflects on these important topics.”
This summer, Del Rey will headline The Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival. Last week she spoke about her upcoming broadcast on BBC Radio 1 following the release of her latest single “The Grants”.
“I was happy to tell people about it,” Del Rey said. “I wanted to tell people because when we started announcing some festivals… it’s inconceivable for me to be a headliner at the second stage of Glastonbury. I mean come on!
“They’ve been asking me to play at Glastonbury for the last three years, but we just weren’t ready. I didn’t want to say yes before we had a big band.”
