Lana Del Rey is stepping away from social media to give her full attention to her upcoming projects.

The “Summertime Sadness” singer announced Saturday that she will be pulling the plug on her Twitter, Instagram and other social accounts.

“Hi, guys. I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow we are going to be deactivating our social media accounts, my social media accounts,” she told her followers, according to Rolling Stone.  “That is simply because I have so many other interests and other jobs I’m doing that require privacy and transparency.”

Naming her announcement video “On the record,” the six-time Grammy nominee expressed gratitude to her fans for supporting her over the years and promised she will continue to release new music and dabble in poetry. 

“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 said. “For right now, I think I’m going to just keep my circle a little bit closer and continue to develop some other skills and interests.”

The 36-year-old signed off by telling fans she will now spend her days “living life” and that she had enjoyed sharing “all these very small tidbits” with her followers.

Lana did not reveal when or if she will return to social media.

In the meantime, her eighth album, Blue Banisters, is due out October 22.  Last week, she released the single “Arcadia,” which will be featured on the upcoming studio effort.
