On July 28, Lana Del Rey is releasing her poetry collection, Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass. She will also be releasing the audiobook on CD, vinyl and cassette on October 3.
Lana Del Rey told the interviewer of Little Infinite,
“It’s kind of random. Which is kind of another one of those things I just want out there just for me? I literally might just drop these little books off at some bookstores in Silverlake and beg them to sell them….It’s been really cool for me ‘cause I was having a little bit of writers’ block with the music last Fall and so I just sat down to write some words without music and I realized there was just a couple of things I wanted to say through some poems, which is funny. I feel like I’m in the 19th Century.”
Below are a few of her poems she posted on Instagram:
