Lana Del Rey’s ‘Violet’ Poetry Audiobook Has Arrived

After months of delays, Lana Del Rey’s Violet is blooming.

The alternative pop singer released her audiobook of Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, which features 14 poems read by Del Rey, with music performed by her frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Fun).

Violet was announced last December ahead of a scheduled January release. However, it was pushed back after the singer’s family was robbed. And then, the pandemic.

Hardcover and ebook editions will include over 30 original Del Rey poems and should drop Sept. 29 via Simon & Schuster, with CDs, vinyl, picture discs and bundles landing soon after, on Oct. 2.

Matching the album cover art, the book cover features a painting of a lush tree decorated with four citrus fruit.

As previously reported, half the proceeds of the collection will be donated to Native American organizations.

Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is “the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many,” explains Del Rey.

“Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem,” she continues. “They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.”

The audiobook is available at Del Rey’s official Website. Check out the cut “LA Who Am I To Love You” below.

In what’s shaping to be a busy couple months for Lana, Violet will be closely followed by the release of a new album of musical works, Chemtrails over the Country Club.

Due out Sept. 5, it’s the followup to Norman F—ing Rockwell, her sixth studio album which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

“As ever, I’m grateful that my muse is still here and that I have over the last three years been blessed to have the insight and ability to channel two books worth of beautiful poems. I think my new record, Chemtrails Over the Country Club, is special as well,” she explained in a May post.
