KROQ interview Lana Del Rey: “When [Stevie Nicks] came into the studio, I was more nervous than I thought I’d be”

Today Lana Del Rey stopped by KROQ, an alternative rock radio station, to give an interview on The Kevin and Bean Show. In the interview, she spoke about her amazing fans, the new record, working with Stevie Nicks

Check out the highlights below, but be sure to check out the full interview here.

On handling fans saying her music saved her life
“It’s a big thing. I absorb it and I keep it. I take it in but I keep it light. I try and take the lightness from it. Music was a big part of my life when I was a teenager too, not that they’re all teenagers.”

On working with Stevie Nicks and if she was nervous
“Not at the time. Not when she came into the studio. I was more nervous than I thought I would be when she came in. I could totally call her. I have to say it’s one of these amazing career and life things where I do consider her a friend and I love her. You never really know with women how it’s going to go, but she just wanted to be there right away. She sent flowers after the track was done, got me a present for my birthday… it’s funny because she’s the one who’s so legendary but she’s the one who really put all the extra effort in and didn’t make anything hard clearance-wise.”

“She asked me to re-sing something, and then I got on the microphone in this booth I’m not usually in, because I usually just sing in the middle of the room, but I was trying to be professorial and do it in the booth. She just wanted me to do my ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ over and my first a was like [Lana sings a small out of tune ‘aahhhh’] and she didn’t say anything, and I said something stupid like ‘oh god that sounds so small next to your ahhs’ and she was like ‘it’s okay you can be my little echo.'”

On how Lust For Life differs from her previous records
“It felt different. I was glad that the general vibe of it didn’t end up being too different from the first few records I did. The melodies and the production were just following what I had been thinking about for the last year and a half. I thought I knew where the record was going and then 14 months into it, it took a turn for me stylistically so I wasn’t really sure where I was going to end up. But I really love it, I’ve got a couple of songs on there like ‘Coachella’ that I love the production for or a song called ‘Cherry’ – again I love the kind of bluesy vibe and the production, so I’m happy with where it went.”

On releasing unreleased songs which she first announced at Amoeba
“I might just release some of those songs because I love them.”
