Lana Del Rey Details Poetry Album 'Violet Bent Backwards over the Grass'
The record will feature music by Jack Antonoff
Published Apr 11, 2020Lana Del Rey turned heads when she announced that she would quickly follow up last year's stunning Norman Fucking Rockwell! with a spoken word poetry album. While the poetry album was postponed from its initial January release, more details have been revealed.
Earlier today on Instagram, Del Rey revealed that the album is titled Violet Bent Backward over the Grass, sharing its title with her forthcoming chapbook of the same name.
She also shared album artwork by Erika Lee Sears and announced that the record would feature music by Jack Antonoff, who co-produced Norman Fucking Rockwell! with Del Rey.
Del Rey had previously said that the album would cost around $1 because "thoughts are meant to be shared" and they are "priceless in some way," and pledged to donate half of the album's proceeds to organizations that aim to preserve the rights and protect the land of Native Americans.
No new release date has been announced. See Del Rey's Instagram post below.
