Lana Del Rey Confirms That Her Album ‘Freestyle Poetry’ Will Be Released In February


Lana Del Rey has confirmed her spoken word album will be called ‘freestyle poetry’ and released in February.

As Norman Fucking Rockwell! was racking up the end-of-year accolades last month, Del Rey was on social media discussing her next venture: “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,” she said.

“And I just really wanted to sort of pay homage to this country that I love therefore much by doing my own reparation, I guess I'd 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, therefore as long as my spoken word album is distributed, half of it will be going to Native American organizations across North America.”

The February release will coincide with a European tour which includes UK concerts at arenas in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.
