Fans of Lana Del Ray won’t have to wait long for her next album.

2019’s Best Lyricist will be releasing a spoken-word album on January 4, 2020. Del Ray announced the news on Instagram saying that the album will cost “around a dollar” and that half of the dollar would go to Native American organizations. The album is a spinoff of the singer’s upcoming poetry book Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass.

Del Ray said her donations to the Native American rights organizations are because she “wanted to pay homage to the country that I love so much by doing my own reparation, I guess I would say.” She also said the album will be “gritty” and that different Native American organizations will benefit from the proceeds.
