Lana Del Rey released her own hands-on new music material for 2023, “Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd?” following her collaboration with one of Taylor Swift’s songs in the latter’s recently released album, “Midnights,” “Snow on the Beach.” Interscope Records released this album on March 24, 2023. Del Rey’s new album expresses the artist’s emotions and personal perspectives, as evidenced by a billboard in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Fans can expect songs in “Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd” to address complex life issues. According to Variety, these themes are the unexpected turns of events involving lust and love and the exploration of consciousness of the existence of life after death.

Lana Del Rey has combined her songwriting process and the corresponding details with life themes that have always haunted her. The singer may have found a way to express her pent-up rage for these aspects of life in her songs in “Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.” According to Billboard, Del Rey wrote the songs for this album with Jack Antonoff, Mike Hermosa, and Drew Erickson.
