A week after treating fans to her first new song in over a year, Lana Del Rey has given her followers more good news than they can handle. On Tuesday (Sept. 18), the New York-born songstress not only premiered another new song, but she also formally announced the release of sixth studio album. Titled Norman Fucking Rockwell, the new record is produced by Bleachers head honcho/super producer Jack Antonoff.
Though no official release date has been given for the upcoming record, Del Rey did confirm that it will see a release time frame of 2019. Norman Fucking Rockwell will be the follow-up to 2017’s Lust for Life.
As previously promised, Del Rey also unleashed her second single from the impending album; a track titled “Venice Bitch.” Heading over to Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, Del Rey debuted the almost ten-minute tune. While speaking to the host about the lengthy track, the musician revealed that her managers were a little apprehensive when she decided on this song as one of her singles.
“I played it for my managers and I was like, ‘Yeah, I think this is the single I want to put out.’ [And] They were like, ‘It’s ten minutes long. Are you kidding me? It’s called Venice Bitch. Like why do you do this to us? Can you make a three-minute normal pop song?’ I was like, ‘Well, end of summer, some people just wanna drive around for ten minutes, get lost in some electric guitar.'”
Listen to the ten-minute track above and maybe do like Del Rey suggests and put it on in your car and just drive.
“Venice Bitch” will join previously release single “Mariners Apartment Complex” on Norman Fucking Rockwell.
