After surprising fans with a new unplanned single this morning, Lana Del Rey hits us with another! She is on the latest cover of Flaunt Magazine, featuring a gorgeous old 70s styled photo shoot photographed by David LaChapelle and styled by Brett Alan Nelson.
LaChapelle commented on his experience photographing Lana:
“Lana’s a down-to-earth person. I like her writing. I saw her show at the Hollywood Bowl, and really liked the music, and that inspired the concept and ideas for the photos. Lana was interested in the artistic angle, not a promotional angle, which I really liked. Much more interested in creating art than promoting something.”
Here is a snippet from the interview with Matthew Bedard for Flaunt.
“The record has fewer dimensions,” she remarks. “But they’re more beautiful than in the past. I had no idea that would make it easier to talk about.” Has this ease with discussing the content perhaps coincided with a sort of softening, or openness toward her in the arenas of public or journalistic reception? “I feel that,” she says thoughtfully. “And it’s helped me be more open as well. Because it’s hard to talk about your innermost feelings if you feel the reception will be cold. And I hung back for a while. I did a handful of interviews, but not many in the last few years. But also I was writing and writing, and digging through stuff, and not writing things as easy to digest or discuss. It still comes from me, but as I’ve evened out as a person, I don’t have as much I don’t want to say. I feel comfortable.”

“I’d give it all away if you give me just one day to ask him one question”
Last month, Lana Del Rey attended the Coachella music festival. A few days afterwards, she shared with us part of a song she had recently written. Today, June 15, Lana surprised us with a release of the full song, which she has titled “Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind.” You can read the lyrics here.
Lana also wrote us a note, explaining how thankful she is to be able to release a song in real time. Here is what the note says if you find it difficult to read:
What a blessing it is to make music in general. And to have the freedom to put songs out about things that move me in real time. I wrote this one last month on my way back from Coachella. Thank you to my producer and engineers for turning it around so quickly. Hope you like it – the video with Starboy is out soon. x Lana
