Tomorrow, July 21, in addition to the release of “Lust For Life”, Lana Del Rey will be on the cover of UK magazine NME. The cover was shot by none other than Neil Krug.
Del Rey arrives. She’s wearing a crocheted T-shirt and jeans. We sit down in a side room and both press record on our phones. There’s a book about Manson Family victim Sharon Tate on the table that neither of us notices until after the interview is over. I ask her if she’s as happy as she looks on the cover of the new album. “Yeah…” she says. “That was my goal, you know, to get to that place of feeling like in my daily life I had a lot of momentum. Like a moving-on-ness from wherever that other place was that ‘Honeymoon’ and ‘Ultraviolence’ came from. I loved those records, but I felt a little stuck in the same spot.”
How did she move on? “I just felt a little more present. Writing a song like ‘13 Beaches’ – it’s a little bit of an abstract notion, but for me it took stopping at 13 beaches one hot day to find one that nobody was at. And I just thought, you know, the concept of needing to find 13 beaches might seem like a luxury problem for someone, but that’s OK, I’m going to go with that.”

Lana Del Rey was recently interviewed by Pitchfork. She talks about her past and present albums including their lyrics and her transformation to a happier self. She also touches on criticism, fans and more.
Here is a preview of the interview. Click here to read the full interview.
Pitchfork: A few years ago you were singing lyrics like “I have nothing much to live for,” and now you’re smiling on the cover of Lust for Life. How’d you get to a happier place?
Lana Del Rey: I made personal commitments.
Commitments to what?
Well, they’re personal. [laughs] I had some people in my life that made me a worse person. I was not sure if I could step out of that box of familiarity, which was having a lot of people around me who had a lot of problems and feeling like that was home base. Because it’s all I know. I spent my whole life reasoning with crazy people. I felt like everyone deserved a chance, but they don’t. Sometimes you just have to step away without saying anything.
Your past albums often presented a claustrophobic universe made up of just you and one other person, but all of a sudden it’s like you’ve got your eyes wide open and you’re looking at the world around you.
Developmentally, I was in the same place for a very long time, and then it just took me longer than most people to be able to be more out there. Being more naturally shy, it’s taken stretching on my part to just continue to integrate into the local community, global community, to grow as a person. Also, getting really famous doesn’t help you grow with the community. It’s important to have your own life. It’s hard with how accessible things are. Hacking? Email is just a no for me. I do a lot to make sure I don’t feel trapped.
Your fans are famously obsessive. Do they ever cross the line?
They fucking have. Someone stole both my cars. All the scary shit. I’ve had people in my house for sure, and I didn’t know they were there while I was there. I fucking called the police. I locked the door. Obviously, that’s the one in one-hundred-thousand people who’s crazy. But I [had a hard time sleeping] for a minute.
Fame can be isolating, but you are making a real effort to not let it be.
It’s going to be isolating. Period. Unless you stretch past it. But it takes so much footwork. Getting over the uncomfortability of being the one person in the room who everyone recognizes. The last few years, I’m out all the time: clubs, bars, shows. For years I was more quietly in the mix, always through the back door, do not tell anyone I’m coming. And now I’ve relaxed into it where I’ll just show up. I don’t need a special ticket. I’ll just go sit wherever. It feels a little more like I’m myself again.
Lana Del Rey has announced a concert in London on July 24. It will take place at the Brixton O2 Academy.
The pre-sale registration begins now. You can do this by pre-ordering Lana’s new album “Lust For Life” from her website here if you haven’t done so already.
Ms. Del Rey, her debut album five years ago was called “Born To Die”, the new “Lust For Life”. Document the album titles where you are in your life?
Lana Del Rey: Yes. I have developed well, as far as overall happiness is concerned. I am still on the road, and growth and chaos will continue to accompany me through life. And yet I feel the change. I have more fun in life than years ago.
Is it in your new song “Change” to these changes?
Del Rey: That’s right “Change” is the last song I wrote for this album. The four words I sung in the chorus basically say everything: honest, capable, beautiful and stable. So I will be. My whole life is shaped by this search, the search to be somewhere to be part of something. In this way I have made a good progress.
What are you up to?
Del Rey: My behavior. And my dealings with people. I have become a lot more relaxed and open. Certainly more self-assured. At the beginning I was very anxious. I often did not know what people were expecting. I watched violently, lived like under a bell that everyone wanted to see.
Del Rey: People were more suspicious of me than many other artists. “Video Games”, my first single, has been totally polarized, I still do not know exactly why, so I had a long time feeling a foot in the door, but I do not have a safe stand in the music world It is no coincidence that I invited more musicians to the new record.
Like Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, who sings with “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.”
Del Rey: Stevie is a friend of my producer Rick Nowels, she was so great, I would call her a girlfriend, Stevie has been playing music for fifty years , Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the whole sound of that time, I love him idolatry, and since I’ve been living in LA, I’m looking for something new Always after other musicians, at all other people, to the same way.
Have you already met many fans of Sixties and Seventies Pop?
Del Rey: In the meantime, I’ve set up a fantastic group of friends in Los Angeles that shares this passion. Father John Misty and his wife Emma Tillman are among them. Or Miles Kane and Alex Turner, the two guys of The Last Shadow Puppets. We are such a small folk community. We radiate this Laurel Canyon feeling, which I like so much.
Sean Lennon is also on the record, in the song “Tomorrow Never Came.”
Del Rey: I tell the song of my ideal of a relationship, the song is one of the few on the album, not mine I do not know what to do, but I do not know what to do with it I appreciate his music very much.
When did you last dance naked on the “H” of the Hollywood sign of LA, as you describe it in “Lust for Life,” a duet with Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd?
Del Rey (laughs): Not at all, that’s full. You do not even come up with a ladder. But close by are a few cool cafes and the Beachwood Canyon, where there are wonderfully quiet, hidden corners.
Her and the voice of The Weeknds fit perfectly together.
Del Rey: Thank you. Chemistry is right between us. Abel was one of the first to post the clip to “Video Games” in 2011, I looked for him and we became friends.
They revealed in an interview a few weeks ago that Donald Trump had a witch curse. Has it shown any effect?
Del Rey (laughs): You do not know. All we now experience with him, we already know from the election campaign. He actually does as much as ever. That is why I am afraid the curse has not yet worked. I would like to have a peaceful, easy time, for example, in the song “Coachella (Woodstock On My Mind”), where it is only the golden hippie season, instead there are threatening scenarios and Trump is pouring more and more oil To the fire He said a few things about which women should really be frightened, I just hope that nothing goes wrong seriously in the next three and a half years.
