Hi folks came back early from Montecito with my brother this morning and asked Jack Antonoff to come into town because I had a song on my mind that I wanted to write. Now I know I’m not a politician and I’m not trying to be so excuse me for having an opinion- but in light of all of the mass shootings and the back to back shootings in the last couple of days which really affected me on a cellular level I just wanted to post this video that our engineer Laura took 20 minutes ago. I hope you like it. I’m singing love to the choruses I recorded this morning. I’m going to call it ‘Looking for America ‘ @jackantonoff @sharp_stick

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.
