While it’s unclear what jobs Del Rey is working on, she assured viewers that she’ll continue to make music in the future, saying “there will probably always be more to come.” She also confirmed that she’s working on the release of poetry books and a spoken-word album.

“I’m still very present and love what I do. I’m absolutely here for the music,” she said before mentioning her upcoming “Blue Banisters” album. “I’m also just going on some different endeavors and I want to say thank you so much for all the support and I do hope that you like the record.”

Towards the end of her video, Del Rey again mentioned wanting more privacy.

“I wanna say a heartfelt thank you for continuing to kind of see me through the music,” Del Rey added. “It’s always important to be witnessed, and it’s also really important just to be witnessed by the people close to you that you know and who you trust, and for right now, I think I’m going to just keep my circle a little bit closer and continue to develop some other skills and interests.”

“I’ve really enjoyed sharing all these very small tidbits with you, and I’m really blessed, so thank you,” she said. “Signing off.”
