Sheer Poetry

Last fall, Lana Del Rey published a book of poetry titled Violet Bent Backwards over the Grass, both in print and as an audio book. And even though she recites the lines of her poems really beautifully, her songs sound even better.

Good news for us that the thirty-five-year-old will be releasing her new seventh album only one-and-a-half years after her previous work, Norman Fucking Rockwell. Two singles from Chemtrails over the Country Club have already been released – with Lana Del Rey’s typically mystical sound (and classic cars in the videos). Yes, there have been heated debates over her attitude to feminism and Trump in recent months. But it’s also true that Lana Del Rey seems to be diving deeper and deeper into the pop culture of the 1950s and 1960s, making her latest album again sound as if the hot and humid summers would never end.

Lana Del Rey: Chemtrails over the Country Club. Urban. Available as download, CD, vinyl or stream.
