    Lana Del Rey is releasing her forthcoming poetry collection, Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass, on Tuesday, July 28 in digital form. In case you prefer your celebrity poetry spoken aloud, though, she has also recorded an audio version of the book, which will be released on vinyl, CD, cassette, and digitally on October 3.

    The poems will be set to music by Jack Antonoff, so you can listen to them while quarantining and pretend you’re at a sparsely-attended poetry reading next door to an Urban Outfitters.
