Overview:
Norman Fucking Rockwell is the sixth studio album and fifth major-label record by American singer Lana Del Rey, released on August 30, 2019. The first singles from the album, "Mariners Apartment Complex" and "Venice Bitch", were released in September 2018, followed by "Hope Is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me to Have – but I Have It" and "Doin' Time" in 2019. The album title was announced in an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 in September 2018. The album was primarily produced by Del Rey and Jack Antonoff, with additional contributions from Zach Dawes, Andrew Watt and longtime Del Rey collaborator Rick Nowels. Musically, Norman Fucking Rockwell is a psychedelic rock and trip hop record, with desert rock and classic rock influences.

Background and release
Del Rey first mentioned follow up material to 2017's Lust for Life during an interview with Pitchfork in January 2018, at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. She said, "I’ve got a couple of other tracks. I’ve got this weird track called ‘Bartender’ that doesn’t belong to a record yet."

The album's title was announced by Del Rey in September 2018, upon the premiere of the single "Venice Bitch" on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show World Record. In her interview with Lowe, Del Rey revealed that the album was nearly complete, and that she had recorded eleven tracks for it.

Throughout 2018, Del Rey shared snippets via social media of several songs intended for the album, including "Happiness Is a Butterfly", "How to Disappear", and "Cinnamon Girl". She performed "How to Disappear" on October 29 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, debuting the full song for the first time.

In a June 2019 concert in Ireland, Del Rey announced that the album would be released in August.

The album's cover art, release date, and track listing were revealed by Del Rey on July 31, 2019. The cover art features Del Rey and Duke Nicholson—actor Jack Nicholson's grandson—posing on a sailboat, with the album title and Del Rey's initials written in a comic-inspired style. The photo was taken by Del Rey's sister, photographer Chuck Grant. The following day, Del Rey released an album trailer.

On August 2, 2019, Urban Outfitters announced an exclusive vinyl of the album featuring an alternative album artwork. The alternative cover was also shot by Chuck Grant.
