"I'm still very present and love what I do. I'm absolutely here for the music,” Del Rey said. "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."

"It’s a compilation of older songs and some new songs; some written by family and friends and mostly old collaborators," Del Rey added, per Rolling Stone. "And there will always be more to come."

Near the end of the video post, the 36-year-old reportedly thanked her fans for their support, but reiterated her desire to concentrate on other things and focus on close relationships. 

"I wanna say a heartfelt thank you for continuing to kind of see me through the music," Del Rey said. "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."
