Lana Del Rey plans perfection for her next album
Dressed in a powerful leather jacket from Gucci in a new feature for Interview Magazine, Lana Del Rey spoke about the mental impact of the global health crisis, and more to her producer Jack Antonoff, who has worked on her previous album Norman Fucking Rockwell'.
Just one year after her last studio release, she has come out with a new collection of spoken word poetry, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, which was also produced by Antonoff.
She believes the virus is a "reflection" of what's happening inside "the individual home."
"I subscribe to the idea that what's going on in the macrocosm, whether it be in the presidency or a virus that keeps us isolated, is a reflection of what's going on in the individual home and inside bedrooms and what people intimately talk about."
When questioned about whether people around her know her deeply, know her "craziness" completely, Lana replied that:
"I don’t ever feel bad for saying to someone, 'I’m having a panic attack because of what you’ve done.' That’s black-belt life, like 3.0. What’s insane is that the pandemic has brought up all of these mental health crises and domestic crises that were always there, that I always sang about, that people had so much to say about in terms of, 'She’s just feigning emotional fragility.' And it’s like, 'Well, not really. You’re feigning emotional togetherness despite the fact that you’re a wack-job Monday through Friday.'”
We all are aware of Lana's fixation on the past, but it seems like in these pandemic times she has also developed a new project for the future. She has spoken about the different direction of her forthcoming new album Chemtrails Over The Country Club, that, thank god, is apparently very, very close to being released.
Chemtrails Over the Country Club will serve as the title track for Lana's new album. Del Rey teased the video to the title track — appearing in her best Hollywood glam mood — and confirmed that the single Let Me Love You Like a Woman will be released soon.
In her talk with Antonoff, she also said that:
“right now [the album] is really, really good — but I don’t know if it’s perfect, and that really bothers me.”
Does it mean that the next best American record is coming?
