Lana Del Rey shared a new piece of oral creations featuring music by collaborator Jack Antonoff.
The three-and-a-half-minute piece, “Patent Leather Do-Over,” was released on Sunday, May 24, and pays homage to the classic novel by author / poet Sylvia Plath. The Bell Jar.
“Sylvia, I knew what you meant when you talked about swimming in the ocean and leaving your black patent leather shoes pointed at her while you were swimming,” said Del Rey. “It tickled you to leave them there.” “
“Patent Leather Do-Over” will appear on Behind the Iron Doors – Perspectives of an Institution, one of the next two collections of spoken word. In early April, the singer shared illustrations for another planned release of spoken word, called Purple curled on the grass.
Behind the Iron Doors – Perspectives of an Institution is expected to be released in March 2021, according to an Instagram post. A release date for Purple curled on the grass has not yet been announced.
Last week, Del Rey wrote on social media that his next album, the sequel to 2019 Norman F – ing Rockwell, will be released on September 5. The publication received a backlash after Del Rey compared himself to other famous female artists.
“Question for culture: Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had numbers one with songs about being sexy, not wearing clothes, kissing, cheating, etc. – can I start singing again to be embodied, feel beautiful while being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dance for money – or whatever I want – without being crucified or saying that I glamorize them abuse ??? ??? ”Del Del wrote.
The singer doubled her comments in a follow-up post, stating that she was not insulting the female artists mentioned and that her words had nothing to do with the breed.
