Del Rey also told the crowd that her highly anticipated sixth studio album, ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’, will arrive in two months’ time. Watch a clip of the announcement here:
Just under 20,000 fans attended the concert, which took place a day after her 34th birthday, at Dublin’s Malahide Castle, reported Independent.ie. Del Rey is currently on a festival tour in Europe.
Del Rey’s cover of the Sublime cut, released in May, will appear in a new documentary about the California ska punk band. The doc, also titled Sublime, premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in April.
“Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one Sublime song,” Del Rey said of her cover upon its release. “They epitomised the SoCal vibe and made a genre and sound totally their own.”
