Lana Del Rey announces spoken word album dropping January 4


Lana Del Rey announced yesterday that she will be digitally releasing a spoken word album of "freestyle poetry" on January 4, 2020. The album is intended to tide fans over until hand-production of her long-delayed poetry book, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, is completed.

In a video posted to her Instagram, Del Rey said that while she originally intended to sell the album for $1, she realized it was a great opportunity to fundraise for various Native American organizations, something she's been wanting to do for some time. (It's worth noting that back in 2012, the singer-songwriter was criticized for donning a Native American headdress in her music video for "Ride.")

"In doing work on connecting to my own family lineage, I was encouraged to also try and connect to the country's lineage," she said. "I really wanted to pay homage to the country that I love by doing my own reparation, I guess I would say, my own reparative act. So as long as my spoken word album is distributed, half of it[s proceeds] will go to Native American organizations."
