Lana Del Rey has released her first spoken word piece, “Patent Leather Do-Over”, just days after sparking controversy with her comments about being held to a different standard than other female artists.
The spoken word piece appears on Behind the Iron Gates — Insights From an Institution, which is number two of spoken-word albums she recorded.
In “Patent Leather Do-Over,” Lana talks about Sylvia Plath and her best-known work, “The Bell Jar.” It features music from Jack Antonoff.
“Sylvia, I knew what you meant when you talked about swimming in the ocean and leaving your patent leather black shoes pointed towards it while you swam. It tickled you to leave them there,” she says in the piece that was released this weekend.
You can listen to it in full below, and the album is set to release in March 2021.
Lana sparked a lot of controversy with her comments about being held to a different standard than others like Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Beyonce. Read more about the backlash she received here.
