Lana Del Rey Announces Release Date of New Album

Lana Del Rey has announced the release date of her follow-up to 2019’s critically acclaimed Norman Fucking Rockwell. In an Instagram post, the singer confirmed the album, with a working title of White Hot Forever, will arrive on September 5th.

Back in August, the singer had said she had “already written parts” of the album and that it would “probably be a surprise release sometime within the next 12 or 13 months”. She is also set to release a spoken word album to accompany her poetry book, Violent Bent Backwards Over the Grass, but no release date has yet been confirmed.

In her post, Del Rey also talked about double standards in the music industry. “Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating etc,” she wrote. “I’m fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I’m just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world.”

The singer continued:  “I’m not not a feminist—but there has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me—the kind of woman who says no but men hear yes—the kind of women who are slated mercilessly for being their authentic, delicate selves, the kind of women who get their own stories and voices taken away from them by stronger women or by men who hate women.”
