Fans were of course delighted by the news, which would give them a double helping of new music from the artist in 2021.

What is the Lana Cult?

The Lana Cult is a self-assigned name for fans who love Lana Del Rey and want her to prominently feature on TikTok and social media in general. They tried to achieve this by sharing the same image of the Video Games singer, which sees her smiling to camera as a car behind her is engulfed in flames.

Fans are either changing their own profile pictures to the same image or adapting their own selfies to feature the same background in support of the star.

The trend may seem pretty pointless, but the #LanaCult hashtag has amassed around 50 million views on TikTok and counting.

Plus, her fans are encouraging the same sort of love and dedication on Twitter.
