Lana Del Rey has announced that she will be deactivating her social media accounts to focus on projects that require “privacy and transparency.”

In a three-minute video shared to Instagram on Saturday, Lana revealed that she would be deactivating her social media accounts to focus on her personal life and “different endeavors.”

“I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow we are going to be deactivating our social media accounts, my social media accounts,” Del Rey said. “That is simply because I have so many other interests and other jobs I’m doing that require privacy and transparency.”

She added, “I’m still very present and love what I do. I’m absolutely out here for the music and that I’m also just going on some different endeavors.”

Lana noted that she would spend her time working on her poetry books and spoken word LPs. She also shed light on her forthcoming record, Blue Banisters, set for release on October 22nd.

“It’s a compilation of older songs and some new songs; some written by family and friends and mostly old collaborators,” Del Rey said. “And there will always be more to come.”
