Lana Del Rey gave us one of the best albums of the year with Norman F—king Rockwell! and she’s not ready to take a break any time soon. Her new spoken word album is coming our way in less than a month.
Del Rey has been planning to release her book of poetry, titled Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, for some time, and this album will make it possible to share her “freestyle poetry” with the world in a brand-new way.
The “Born To Die” singer said she wants this album to cost only a dollar, because she loves the idea that thoughts are priceless and meant to be shared. Whatever the price of this album ends up being, she’s donating half of the proceeds to Native American organizations.
“I had wanted to do it because in doing my own work in connecting to my own family lineage I was encouraged to also try to connect to the country’s lineage. I just really wanted to sort of pay homage to the country that I love so much by doing my own reparation,” said Lana Del Rey in a video she shared on Instagram.
Her spoken word album will be released on January 4th, but she’s also planning to drop a new record titled White Hot Forever some time next year.
