Lana Del Rey delays release of new spoken word album 'Violet'


Lana Del Rey has delayed the release of Violet, her 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 was originally due out January 4th, 2020.

Del Rey said that “thoughts are meant to be shared” when announcing her new spoken word record, also confirming that it will be available to purchase for just $1 with half will go toward Native American organisations. According to Del Rey, she “wanted to do it because in doing my own work in connecting to my 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.”

However, the release of the record has been delayed having missed the release date. “Hoping everyone had a great New Years, gonna wait for about a month to put out ‘Violet’ since we lost about nine days with everything going on—it’s an interesting project though, looking forward to having it out x,” she wrote in a post on social media.
