Lana Del Rey’s anticipated follow up to her acclaimed 2019 Album, “ Norman F***ing Rockwell” is, in fact, not an album. Well, it’s kind of an album, but not what you’d expect. An, EP then? No, it’s an audiobook! “Violet Bent Over Backwards in the Grass,” is a spoken word recording of 14 poems by Lana Del Rey accompanied by music from award winning songwriter/producer Jack Antonoff who produced Lana’s “ Norman...” album.
“Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass” has been released as an audiobook download
and is coming October 2 on CD, Vinyl and Picture Disc. Here’s the track listing:
BRANDON FLOWERS of The Killers
LANA DEL REY
NILS LOFGREN of The E Street Band/Grin/Crazy Horse
RAY DAVIES of The Kinks
In 1966, Jimmy Page made his live debut with The Yardbirds at The Marquee Club in London.
In 1966, The Beatles recorded a new John Lennon song, “She Said She Said,” at Abbey Road Studios in London. “She Said She Said” was reportedly based on a bizarre conversation that Lennon had with Peter Fonda while John and George Harrison were tripping on LSD.
A collaboration, a previously unheard b-side and the triumphant return of an LA based indie band. These songs are currently on the 88.5 FM playlist and should be on your radar.
Cat Power's first single from upcoming album Wanderer features backing vocals from Lana Del Rey
