During a conversation with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, Lana said that the album's title drew inspiration from her studio sessions with producer Jack Antonoff. "Working with Jack [Antonoff], I was in a little bit of a lighter mood because he was so funny," Lana said. "So the title track is called "'Norman Fucking Rockwell'" and it's kind of about this guy who is such a genius artist but he thinks he’s the shit and he knows it and he like won't shut up talking about it."

"Venice Bitch" is almost 10 minutes long and Lowe described it as a "two-sided song." Del Rey shared the experience of playing it for her managers: "I played it for my managers and I was like, yeah I think this is the single I want to put out. And they were like it's 10 minutes long. Are you kidding me? It's called “Venice Bitch”. Like why do you do this to us? Can you make a three minute normal pop song?I was like well, end of summer, some people just wanna drive around for 10 minutes get lost in some electric guitar. "

Elsewhere in the interview, the Lust For Life singer shared that she has been spending time trying to get her pilot license, and sailing among other things.
