I en alder af 35 formår Lana Del Rey stadig at overraske - denne gang med en poesisamling. Det ligger til sjældenhederne, at popmusikere udgiver digtsamlinger, men Lana Del Rey formår at give denne dagtsamling sit helt eget præg og har her indtalt den som LP. Og hun leverer.


Lana Del Rey har gennem sin karriere hele 2 gange opnået at skabe albums, som gik direkte ind på 1. pladsen på de officielle charts. Derudover er hun seksgange Grammy-nomineret. Alligevel lægger Lana Del Rey ikke skjul på, at hun selv føler, at hun som sanger og sangskriver er 'underdog', og nu prøver hun altså at gå en helt anden vej med sin nye udgivelse ''Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass,'' som i stor stil bryder med alt, hun tidligere har udgivet. 

''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


LP'en indeholder 14 digte performet af Lana Del Rey i samarbejde med produceren Jack Antonoff.
