Lana Del Rey’s shares 14-minute ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ video

Lana Del Rey has shared the visuals for her 14-minute song ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ which has been directed by her sister, Chuck Grant.

The song, a title track from Del Rey’s sixth studio album of the same name, was written and produced by Del Rey and Jack Antonoff and nominated for for ‘Song of the Year’ at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.

“Working with Jack Antonoff, I was in a little bit of a lighter mood because he was so funny,” Del Rey previously said in an interview with Zane Lowe. “So the title track is called ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ and it’s kind of about this guy who is such a genius artist but he thinks he’s the shit and he knows it and he, like, won’t shut up talking about it.”

Paying homage to painter Norman Rockwell, Del Rey poses questions such as, “Why wait for the best when I could have you?” as part of her lyrics which in general, discusses a running theme of a troubled relationship with an immature man.

The new video becomes the third released by Del Rey’s new album, following previous visuals which represented the songs The greatest’ and ‘Fuck it I love you.’

In other Del Re-related news, the singer announced that she will kickstart the new year with a brand new spoken word album.

Fresh from the overwhelming success of her most recent record Norman Fucking Rockwell! which included an accompanying major tour, Del Rey is not resting on her laurels and has two releases penned in.

Having already confirmed that her new project, White Hot Forever, will be released next year, Del Rey has confirmed the release of what will be the singer’s debut spoken word record which is due out January 4th, 2020.

Del Rey made the announcement via a video posted on her social media, she said: “I had a thought for a while about how I knew 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’d been thinking of before releasing it which was that I wanted half of what the spoken word is going for to benefit Native American organisations around the country, whether it was for preserving their rights or trying to help keep their land intact.”

She continued: “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 and connect with the country’s lineage—this was a while ago—and it kind of informed the next album that I’ve been working on. And I just really wanted to sort of pay homage to this country that I love so much by doing my own reparation, I guess I would say, my own reparative act.

“I know it’s an unusual choice, and I have no reasoning for it other than it just feels right to me, so as long as my spoken word album is distributed, half of it will be going to Native American organisations across North America.”
