“'Violet Bent Backwards over the Grass' is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. 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. 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.” (Lana Del Rey)

1. LA WHO AM I TO LOVE YOU

2. THE LAND OF 1,000 FIRES

3. VIOLET BENT BACKWARDS OVER THE GRASS

4. PAST THE BUSHES CYPRESS THRIVING

5. SALAMANDER

I asked Asmodeus (the demon of lust) to make Miley Cyrus suffer. I am not happy with these new developments. After Miley rips off Lana's aesthetic, she bullies Lana into changing her release date. It is infuriating.

Yes. This is a literary work being published by a bookseller and they don't want to put it all on streaming

I'm already pumped as all hell to listen through the whole thing. Her speaking voice is like pure velvet.

 

(Also, one of my favorite things about a release of a project of hers is the discussion it spurs. It's always thought-provoking to read what everyone has to say about it, so I'm looking forward to it  :wub: )
