Following the release of “Mariners Apartment Complex,” Lana Del Rey has unveiled her second single as promised. “Venice Bitch” is another collaboration with Jack Antonoff that has Lana singing about her usual love-induced antics. She sings about how she’s an “ice queen” that is “fresh out of fucks forever” while listing off her signature motifs like ice cream, jeans and leather. The moody ballad was formally premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show World Record on Apple Music. Running at 10 minutes long, her intention was to give people something that they could drive around and get lost to.
Lana also shared a vintage-inspired visual for the song that practically brings the spirit of summer back to life. During the show, the singer-songwriter officially announced that the follow-up project to her 2017 album Lust For Life will be titled Norman Fucking Rockwell. While in conversation with Lowe, she explained how the title character is “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.”
A release date has yet to be confirmed for the album. In the meantime, fully consume her latest offering above.
