Lana Del Rey confirms release date for ‘Norman F***ing Rockwell’

Everyone, stop what you’re doing. Lana Del Rey just confirmed the official release date for her new studio album.

On Wednesday (July 31), the singer took to social media to confirm that her much-anticipated sixth studio album will see a late-August release date. The 14-track album, which was previously confirmed to be titled Norman Fucking Rockwell, is due out Aug. 30 through Interscope Records.

Jack Antonoff of Bleachers fame, frequent Del Rey collaborator Rick Nowels, Zach Dawes, and Happy Perez are all listed as producers on the upcoming album.

In June, Del Rey told the audience at her Malahide Castle show (Dublin) that her long-awaited follow-up to Lust for Life would be out in “two months’ time.”

She wasn’t kidding.

In addition to the release date, Del Rey also unveiled the album’s tracklisting and cover art which was shot by her sister, and frequent collaborator, Chuck Grant. The tracklist features several songs Del Rey has released over the last year with the addition of a special surprise in the form of her Sublime cover.

Until this point, we’ve heard  “How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it” and several other tracks that did not make it onto the album.

In other news, Del Rey is set to drop a collaborative track with Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande relatively soon. The song is for the upcoming Charlie’s Angels film due out Nov. 15. A snippet of the song can be heard in the background of the movie’s first trailer.
