The singer played two songs reportedly named ‘Hey Blue Baby’ and ’I Must be Stupid for Being So Happy’ at Jack Antonoff’s annual benefit concert
Lana Del Rey recently performed at a benefit concert for The Ally Coalition, held by pop producer Jack Antonoff every year, where she debuted a handful of new songs that she described as “country”.
As The FADER report, attendees on Twitter noted that Del Rey performed the new songs “Hey Blue Baby” and “I Must be Stupid for Being So Happy” at the concert, and said that they likely won’t appear on her new album, Norman Fucking Rockwell.
The good news, however, is that MTV UK are reporting that Norman Fucking Rockwell will be released on March 29 next year. The site doesn’t offer their source for this date, so take it with a pinch of salt, but it’s not that unlikely given that she’s already released two songs from the album, “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch”. We’ve reached out to Del Rey’s publicist to confirm.
The Ally Coalition was created by Antonoff with his former bandmates in Fun. and his sister, Rachel Antonoff. The charity create awareness, raises money, and builds action in support of LGBTQ+ communities. This year, the benefit concert featured Mitski, Hayley Kiyoko, and Regina Spektor, as well as a surprise appearance by Taylor Swift.
