Lana Del Rey says her will prohibits the posthumous release of her music

Along with Anderson .Paak, the singer-songwriter is the latest artist to state that no musical releases are permitted after her death

From Juice Wrld to Pop Smoke to Lil Peep, there has been a steady stream of posthumous releases from artists who have passed recently.

This week, Anderson .Paak shared a new tattoo on his forearm that very clearly states he doesn’t want any projects of his released without his permission. “When I’m gone, please don’t release any posthumous albums or songs with my name attached,” the tattoo reads. “Those were just demos and never intended to be heard by the public.”

Now, Lana Del Rey has revealed that a stipulation in her will prohibits the release of posthumous music after her death. The singer-songwriter shared a picture of .Paak’s tattoo on her Instagram account, captioning the photo: “It’s in my will but it’s also on his tattoo.”

Del Rey’s forthcoming album Blue Banisters was set to arrive last month, which features production from Kanye West collaborator Mike Dean, but has so far yet to materialise, although three songs have been shared so far. She recently featured on Jack Antonoff collaboration “Secret Life”, via his indie pop act Bleachers.
