Lana Del Rey has revealed the cover art for her new album, Norman F_king Rockwell!, which you can see above. The singer has also confirmed that the new record will be released on 30 August. The record has been produced by her frequent collaborator, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff.
The singer shared the cover art on both her Instagram and Twitter today, 31 July, photographed by her sister Chuck Grant, to mass fandom hysteria. The cover shows the musician in full Americana glory at the helm of a star spangled flag-bearing ship, neon yellow-nailed hands outstretched, ‘Norman F_king Rockwell’ emblazoned on the cover in pop art print. She has her arm around Duke Nicholson – an actor who appeared most recently in Jordan Peele’s Us, who is also incidentally Jack Nicholson’s grandson.
Del Rey first announced the album last year, sharing the new tracks ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ and ‘Venice Bitch.’ This year she shared ‘Hope Is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me to Have—But I Have It’ and a cover of Sublime’s ‘Doin’ Time.’ All four songs appear on the tracklist. Collaborators include Jack Antonoff, Laura Sisk, Rick Nowles, and Zach Dawes.
The singer has also previously shared snippets of songs from the record including the title track, ‘Bartender’ and ‘Happiness Is a Butterfly.’ The record also features ‘How to Disappear,’ a song that she performed at an Apple Event last year.
The new album is the follow-up to Grammy-nominated Lust For Life, which was released in February 2017.
