Lana Del Rey reveals name of upcoming album: ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’

You write, I tour, we make it work
You’re beautiful and I’m insane
We’re American-made

~read the full lyrics here~

Lana Del Rey spoke to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio today about her newest single ‘Venice Bitch’. The track, which clocks in at almost 10 minutes, was released today with an accompanied home-shot music video.

Lana also announced the title for her upcoming album which is ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’. She said that has been the title since March and right now there are 11 songs for it.

Lana added that she is thinking about putting another song out in October, but she is unsure if this will fully make sense because the track is a serious and thoughtful standalone song.

On the poetry book she’d like to release soon, Lana revealed it’s current title is ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass’, which is a line from one of her favourites, and it should feature around 30 poems.

For more information about her new music, poetry collection and how she’s training to get her pilot’s licence, you can listen to the full interview here.

‘Venice Bitch’ can be streamed on Spotify and iTunes, but be sure to check out the music video below.

They mistook my kindness for weakness
I fucked up, I know that, but Jesus
Can’t a girl just do the best she can?

Below is the Radio 1 interview transcribed as text. Please click here to listen to it as aired live.

ANNIE MAC: Big day for you, new music going out to the world.
LANA DEL REY: Yeah, I’m so excited.
AM: I’ve succumbed to this song. I’ve listened to it five times in a row. I wanna take your hand and go wherever you’re leading me on this song.
LDR: Aw thank you so much.
AM: The lyrics are so beautiful. Lyrics of temptation and affirmations. And I’m interested in the kind of perspective you’re speaking from in the song as well, because at the start it seems like you’re speaking from a female perspective, but then there’s the “I’m your man” affirmation all the way through.
LDR: Well the song is kind of about this time I took a walk late at night with the guy I was seeing, and we stopped in front of his friend’s apartment complex, and he put his hand on my shoulder and said, “you know, I think we’re together because we’re both, you know, we’re both similar, like we’re both really messed up and I thought that was the saddest thing I ever heard. I said “you know, I’m not sad like I didn’t know what’s what you thought you were relating to me on that level.” And I said to him like, “I’m actually doing pretty good” and he was upset and that was when I wrote the song, because I’ve had to do this so many times where I had to sort of step into that role where I was showing the way and I was sort of being like the brighter light. That’s why it’s so cool that you’re playing it because I sort of thought I would just put it out and it would be one of those things that I Felt good about just to have out there for myself, but ti’s cool to be able to share it with people too. I didn’t expect to do that.

AM: You’re saying about him having this perception of you that he thought you were sad and kind of messed up, even though you felt you were in a good place. Is that kind of the analogy for the perception of you as an artist as well? You came out smiling on your last album with a big, beautiful grin on your face. Have you felt that before, people putting you into a box as such?
LDR: I think it’s because when I came out, like around 2011, it was just so not ok to be different or like to have a little sadness or to be working through stuff. At the time everything was really polished, all of the music that was coming out. But now though, there’s so many artists who are similar to me and nobody’s perfect so it’s really interesting. It’s so cool for me because my music still has a little place in the culture because it’s really mixed out there.
AM: I’ve always thought that one of the great things about you as an artist is that you are unfailingly honest. It feels like you are really expressing who you are and, as you say, if you are sad you wanted to sound a certain way or reflect exactly how you were feeling at the time. It feels like you’re in your own lane in a world out there where people feel they have to conform to certain trends, but you’ve always kinda stuck to your own lane and done what you want to do. Have you felt tempted to go and jump on bandwagons or had pressure from people going “well maybe you should make your music sound like this”?
LDR: Well thank you so much for saying that and that’s why it makes me smile that you’re even playing this song. I’ve never really felt tempted to go much bigger, I’m always more inclined to go deeper which is almost harder becuase sometimes things get more obscure. But I have people I work with who want that song, who want the big song, and I’m like “ok find someone to write it for me”. By the way, I’m not opposed to singing someone else’s song, I love the idea of that. I hear songs like Rihanna sings and I think wow I don’t even know how you would even start writing that, they’re so beautiful. I mean at some point I could sing something that’s really catchy and sparkly.

AM:Is this a bigger project? Are you seeing an album coming out of these sessions?
LDR: Yeah, I have an album. We have like a collection of songs that I sequenced and I really love. I don’t think it’ll be out until the top of next year, just because I’m actually working on a little book of poetry. I think I’m just gonna self publish it and put it out beforehand, which is kind of random but it’s kind of another one of those things I just want out there for me. I literally might just drop these little books off at some book stores in Silver Lake and like beg them to sell them, but it’s kinda cool.
AM: This album then coming sometime next year, was there any kind of creative path that you really wanted to go down or were you just kind of writing and having stuff come out of you?
LDR: Yeah there was, it was in the vain of a rural canyon sound. And it’s kind of transformed a little bit because now there’s some surf elements to some songs. I mean it’s not really surfy, but a lot of like electric guitar. A little Red Hot Chili Pepper influence in there.

Lana Del Rey: “Performing in Tel Aviv is not a political statement”

UPDATE: Lana Del Rey has cancelled her appearance. Click here to read her statement on Twitter.

Through Twitter, Lana Del Rey commented on something President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said: “Truth isn’t truth.” She said: “‘the truth isn’t the truth’ is a very disturbing statement. Having a shared agreement on what the basis of reality and truth is is what holds the fabric of civilization together. That being said I do feel like this quote sums up the kulture, and in one sentence explains why there is such a division in political opinion and mental health right now.”



Due to Trump and Israel being in the news regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Lana clarified that her thoughts about her upcoming performance at the Meteor Festival in Tel Aviv, Israel. She said her appearance there is not a political statement and she does not support Trump or what is currently happening in Israel. In a long statement, shared in two parts on Twitter, she said:

“On the tropic of ‘truth’ (my earlier tweet that referenced a statement made by Giuliani about Trump today) I understand that many of u are upset that we’re going to Tel Aviv for the Meteor festival. I understand your concern, I really do. What I can tell you is I believe music is universal and should be used to bring us together. We signed onto the show with the intention that it would be performed for the kids there and my plan was for it to be done with a loving energy, with a thematic emphasis on peace. If you don’t agree with it, I get it. I see both sides. But me and my band have been performing all over the world for months out of the years for close to 10 years now together. And we’re about to travel to a place that many big bands are playing this year and at a festival. WE don’t always agree with the politics of the places we play within or even in our own country – sometimes we don’t even feel safe, depending on how far abroad, but we travel – but we are musicians and we’ve dedicated our lives to being on the road. So in closing, although I have deep sentiments over what is true or not true, right or wrong – I would like to remind you that performing in Tel Aviv is not a political statement or a commitment to the politics there, just as my singing here is California doesn’t mean my views are in alignment with the current government’s opinions or sometimes inhuman actions. Or that I condone my own president who openly mocks disabled people at rallies (I’m not in anyway likening the gravity of certain travesties that have occurred in Israel to the current hardships we’re facing here). I’m just stating that I’m a simple singer, I’m doing my best to navigate the waters of the constant tumultuous hardships in the war-torn countries all over the world that I travel through monthly. For the record I’m doing the very best I can and my intentions are better than most peoples that I know.
Sincerely
L Del Rey


Some people challenged Lana’s intentions to go ahead with her appearance at Meteor Festival, but she replied sticking to her guns and wanting to promote love and positivity where it is needed the most.
