Lana Del Rey released her last album, Lust for Life, in July 2017 via Interscope. Just last week she has returned with a new song “Mariners Apartment Complex,” shared via a black & white video. Now she has returned with another new song, the near 10-minute long “Venice Bitch,” also shared via a video (this one in color and also looking like it was shot on Super-8 or 16mm film). Like “Mariners Apartment Complex,” the song is also a collaboration with Jack Antonoff (he of fun. and Bleachers, and in an in-demand producer). Watch the video below.

Also, in a new interview with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, Del Rey revealed that her new album will be titled Norman Fucking Rockwell. In the interview she also said she’s working on a book of poetry under the working title Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, is training for her pilot’s license, and hopes to release another new song in October.

Here’s what she had to say to Lowe about “Venice Bitch”: “I played it for my managers and I was like, ‘Yeah, I think this is the single I want to put out.’ And they were like, ‘It’s 10 minutes long. Are you kidding me? It’s called ‘Venice Bitch.’’ Like, ‘Why do you do this to us? Can you make a three minute normal pop song?’ I was like, ‘Well, end of summer, some people just wanna drive around for 10 minutes get lost in some electric guitar.’”

In terms of the new album and its title, Del Rey had this to say to Lowe: “Working with Jack [Antonoff], I was in a little bit of a lighter mood because he was so funny. So the title track is called ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ and it’s kind of about this guy who is such a genius artist but he thinks he’s the shit and he knows it and he like won’t shut up talking about it. So often I ended up with these creative types or whatever, and you know, they just go on and on about themselves, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ But there’s a little bit of merit to it also. They are so good. I just like the title track so much that I was like, ‘OK, I definitely want the record to also be called that.’

“In the song ‘Venice Bitch’ there’s like another little reference to Norman Rockwell, which didn’t have to be in there. I don’t even remember if I threw it in there intentionally just to pop that message in a little further. I can’t even remember what I was thinking, but I think when I was writing this song, it was a more happy take on love and it was just sort of about like, ‘I tour, you write. We make it work.’ And also you know I love having painter references because I think sometimes when you’re writing you’re sort of trying to paint these ideas into existence, because I’m very visual too. So yeah, I don’t know. I know it’s a crazy title, but that’s just the title of the record.”

The 80s touch that she gives to her songs is what attracted me since the beginning. I have wondered in the beginning why she always sticks to that era. But after seeing one of her interviews, I understood the reason.
