Norman Fucking Rockwell


Guilty pleasure or I don't know but a few things I like about Lana Del Rey. Norman Fucking Rockwell (2019) is her sixth and best album, released just over a week ago on August 30. Themes across the fourteen tracks include glamour, self-destruction, the usual for her, with storytelling, melancholic romance, and Del Rey's raunchy-sweet, vulnerable honesty and voice. Something else I like about her, or her act, is she writes her own stuff, rather than paying others to, and can actually play the guitar.


That's Jack Nicholson's grandson Duke on the cover.


Best track (must've listened to Leonard Cohen before writing it): "Mariners Apartment Complex" (video here)


"Doin' Time" video here.
