Lana Del Rey has shared a new video that sees her reciting a poem from her spoken-word album, ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass’.
Released on Tuesday (July 28), the ‘Video Games’ singer’s new poetry album is set to the music of Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff, who previously teamed up with Del Rey on her sixth studio album, ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’.
“They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are,” Del Rey said of her poems.
Today (August 2), she’s shared a video of her performing her poem ‘Salamander’. You can watch it below.

Del Rey’s ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass’ will be followed up by a hardcover book version featuring more of her written work on September 29. Vinyl, CD and cassette versions are also due to be released.
Taking to Twitter, Del Rey opened up by acknowledging that the celebratory day is “challenging for a multitude of reasons” including “traumas, disappointments of not being a mother [and] rifts with blood mothers”.
“So on this day as I always do every Mother’s Day, I want to send my love out to all my sisters in the world who aren’t quite where they thought they would be this Mother’s Day, and to all of my sisters who are blissfully happy as well,” she said.
Diplo joins Joji on hazy new summer anthem ‘Daylight’
Set to appear on Joji’s upcoming new album ‘Nectar’, the new record is a mid-tempo summer anthem that sets the half-Japanese, half-Australian former YouTube star’s vocals against Diplo’s hazy production.
“It might be nice for people to hear a song about daylight, especially when we don’t get as much of it as we used to,” Joji said of the track.
In the accompanying video – directed by Munachi Osegbu – Joji and Diplo act as struggling PAs on a ’90s music video shoot. The pair unintentionally derail the shoot of the young (at heart) pop divas by bumbling around the set.
Watch the video for ‘Daylight’ below.
‘Daylight’ is the fourth pre-release track from ‘Nectar’ and follows the release of ‘Sanctuary’, and Joji’s first 2020 single, ‘Run’. The album is due to arrive on September 25.
As the virus continues to spread, the Major Lazer producer made light of the epidemic, posting a tongue-in-cheek video to his Instagram captioned “travel tips.”
The video, soundtracked by Foxx’s ‘Wipe Me Down’, saw Diplo sat in first class on a plane wearing a face mask and rapidly wiping nearby surfaces with wet wipes. His friend, also sporting a mask, ran over with a wipe and disinfected Diplo. The words “Not today coronavirus” were written across the top of the video.
Foo Fighters cancel 25th anniversary Van Tour
Foo Fighters have cancelled their upcoming Van Tour that would have commemorated the band’s 25th anniversary.
The dates were originally scheduled to take place this spring but had to be rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After postponing the tour’s start until October, the Foos have now announced that the run of shows will no longer take place at all. “Foo Fighters have cancelled the Van Tour 2020,” a statement posted on their social media channels read.
“For further information, please visit your point of purchase. We look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe for everyone to do so.”

3 – Cleveland, OH, Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse
5 – Detroit, MI, Little Caesars Arena
7 – Grand Rapids, MI, Van Andel Arena

Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl recently revealed he often found it “terrifying” to lead the band in their first decade together, after spending his time behind the drums with Nirvana.
“Coming out and standing [on stage]… I mean, fuck, I’d been sitting on a drum stool for so long that, oh my God, now I have to stand in front of people?” he said. “How does my body move? What do I say in-between songs?”
The band’s self-titled debut album celebrated its 25th anniversary last month (July 4) and Grohl reflected on the record in a new interview. “It was almost like a school project,” he explained. “I was preparing, I had charts.”

Turns out James Gandolfini was a huge fan of Green Day’s ‘Dookie’
The late actor, who passed away in 2013 while on vacation in Rome, was a big fan of the pop-punk trio, according to former co-star Michael Imperioli.
Yesterday (August 6), Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos, posted a photograph of himself holding a guitar that Gandolfini is signing.

In the comments, Imperioli was asked about the kind of music Gandolfini liked. “Green Day,” he replied. “He would play the vinyl of dookie in his trailer at work. Totally serious,” he followed up, before adding: “No joke. He loved Green Day.”

Last week it was announced that the writers behind The Sopranos and Goodfellas are coming together to create a new mafia drama series.
The show, which will be produced by Showtime and Imagine Television Studios, will be created by The Sopranos producer Terence Winter, Goodfellas screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi and Empire‘s Brian Grazer, according to Deadline.
The end of the hit show, which was broadcast in 2007, left Tony with an ambiguous fate, with him sitting in a diner as a rival hitman approached.
The screen faded to black before Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin” played, leaving fans unsure as to whether Tony was killed or not.
