Lana Del Rey’s hotline number was busy.
Del Rey posted a glamor shot on Instagram with the caption “Call me”. Of course it was.
It’s nice to listen to someone who enjoys singing as much as she does, especially on the kind of ambivalent, lonely ballads (Music To Watch Boys To, High By The Beach and God Knows I Tried) at which she excels.
If you decide to call in (really, why wouldn’t you?) you might be treated to songs from the new album, recorded poetry readings by Lana or even a one-on-one chat with the Brooklyn Baby herself. Those who couldn’t get through got to hear her recite the poem “Burnt Norton” by T.S. Eliot, which was probably an unsatisfactory consolation prize, but at least she didn’t read those poems that was the inspiration for Cats.
Honeymoon was released last week (18 September) and featured a cover photo of Lana sitting in a vehicle with a phone number on the side, 1-800-268-7886 in case you were wondering.
The direct-to-fans performance is Del Rey’s latest promotion for her third major record label album, Honeymoon.
