Taken from her forthcoming new album
Lana Del Rey performed ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ for the first time ever during her show at the Buku Music + Art Project at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans.
The show was the pop star’s first 2019 performance and included a lavish set-up including a giant wooden swing. “Thank you for indulging my little folk sensibility,” she told the crowd.
‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ was released last year but Del Rey hadn’t performed it publicly until Friday night (March 22). You can watch it below.
Earlier this month, it was reported that the singer’s forthcoming book of poetry will be sold for just one dollar each.
“So I’m like super excited about self publishing my first poetry book,” she said. “And I just wanted to say any mom-and-pop SoCal/ San Fran book stores that are interested in having it just let me know and I’ll drive you out a couple boxes when I’m done binding it in a few months xx”
One fan asked how much the book would cost, to which she responded: “$1… because my thoughts are priceless.”
Recent poems posted to her Instagram include “Jasmine in the air / the burden of fame is real / never felt so clear.” The posts seem to indicate that the book will be titled Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass.
