Lana Del Rey teases poetry book with intriguing social media posts

The singer has already confirmed she will self-publish the new collection

Lana Del Rey has teased her upcoming poetry book in a series of intriguing social media posts.

The singer previously confirmed she is set to self-publish a collection of her own poems, which she said in September was tentatively titled Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass.

After previously sharing some of her writing on her Instagram page, Del Rey has teased more snippets that could be featured in the book. Over the weekend, she shared one post that was half typewritten and half written in coloured pencils.


“You can have a life beyond your wildest dreams,” it read. “All you have to do is change everything…” The second line was then repeated three times in blue, pink, and green.


Another read: “I measure time by the days I’ve spent away from you/That thought occurred to me/As I watched the sky go dark from blue.”

A third post showed a photo of a residential street with the mountains in the distance. In the comments, fans repeatedly asked for news of her new album, to which someone replied: “Can y’all stop asking for album updates and appreciate this poetic prelude to her best era???!? She’ll announce when she’s ready like sheesh.”

Last month, the star said she would sell copies of the upcoming book for $1 “because my thoughts are priceless.”

Meanwhile, Del Rey has shared a number of songs from her next album ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ over recent months. The record is still without a release date, but a press release sent out in January said it be out in “mid-2019”.

The much-anticipated album was produced by Jack Antonoff and could feature tracks including ‘Mariner’s Apartment Complex’ and ‘Venice Bitch’.
