Here's what to expect from Lana Del Rey's spoken word album of freestyle poetry
Queen of unpredictable pop Lana Del Ray has announced her next project and it's every slam poet's dream come true. Lana has announced on Instagram that she is set to release a spoken word album of freestyle poetry, which is set to release on January 4. It was revealed earlier this year that the singer-songwriter will self-publish a book of her own poetry, which was tentatively titled Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass. The spoken word album may just co-incide with her book, as the idea came to her around the same time. In her Instagram video she revealed that her book is taking a while to hand-bind.
"I knew I wanted the album to be around a dollar because I just love the idea that thoughts are meant to be shared and that they were priceless in some way. And there was a second part that I had been thinking of before releasing it, which was that I wanted half of what the spoken word album was going for to benefit Native American organizations around the country, whether it was for preserving their rights or trying to help keep their land intact," Lana said.
The singer will donate half the proceeds of her spoken word LP to Native American organisations, where the money can help in “preserving their rights or trying to help keep their land intact.” Lana has also said that this is her way of paying an homage to the country and its heritage, and calls it her own 'reparative act.'
The new LP will be a follow-up to her last album Norman F***ing Rockwell! which was not just her best work till date, but also one of the most top-selling albums this year. 2019 has been a significant year in Lana's trajectory, and 2020 is going to be even bigger. Besides the new releases she will also perform in Lollapalooza Chile, Lollapalooza Argentina, Lollapalooza Brasil, and Hangout Musical Festival.
