AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week: Lana Del Rey, Venice Bitch

US singer Lana Del Rey has shared new song Venice Bitch – and it’s AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week. You can listen to it here.

The single comes hot on the heels of another recent new song, Mariners Apartment Complex (watch the video below), which was produced in collaboration with Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff.

In the video for Venice Bitch, Del Rey talks on the phone before facing the camera and pretending to shoot at it with her fingers.

“Fresh out of f***s forever/Trying to be stronger forever”, she sings. “Oh god, miss you on my lips/It’s me, your little Venice bitch”.

The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music last night (Tuesday, 18 September).

Speaking to Lowe, Del Rey said she wants to publish a book of her own poetry and already has “13 kind of long poems” written.

“I didn’t think I would [publish them] until three weeks ago,” she said, discussing her poetry.

“I have like 13 kind of long poems that I started binding and I thought, ‘Wow, the pages are kind of stacking up here.’

“I mean, it’s easy too with haikus because it’s only three lines so you could have like 30 pages of haikus that’s only like 200 words or something. But I thought they’re kind of like stacking up to look like a real book.

“So I mean what I’d like to do is sort of self publish but I’m not very good at the distribution side of things.”
