Lana Del Rey took to Instagram on Thursday (Oct. 25) to tease fans with a new snippet from a song called “Sylvia Plath” from her upcoming album, Norman Fucking Rockwell. “Sylvia Plath” is the most recent offering after teasing “How to Disappear” and “Cinnamon” earlier this month. Both teaser clips have since been removed from her page.
The selfie video sees Del Rey lying on her back and mouthing the words to the piano-driven, melancholy track. Along with the video, Del Rey took to Twitter to provide the official lyrics to the verse she teased in the video.
For listeners unfamiliar with Plath, the troubled poet and author behind The Bell Jar battled clinical depression and ended up committing suicide at age 30.
Norman Fucking Rockwell, which is set to release in 2019, has no confirmed release date yet. “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch” are the only two official tracks from the upcoming album so far.
Check out Del Rey’s teaser and learn the lyrics to the first verse below.
I was reading Slim Aarons
and I got to thinking that I thought maybe I’d get less stressed if I was tested less
like all of these debutantes-
smiling for miles
in pink dresses and high heels
on white yachts.
But I’m not
