The cancelled tour was in support of Lana’s 2019 album ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’, which NME gave a five-star review, and labelled the third best album of 2019.

Lana picked up the Best Album In The World award at the NME Awards 2020 in London last week. In her acceptance speech, she said: “Thank you so fucking much. I cannot tell you how much this award means to me.

“You’ve supported me since 2011, put me on my first cover in London… Honestly, I was thinking about it, and without you guys I don’t even know how much music I’d be making.
