“I wrote God Bless America [a track on the album] before the Women’s Marches, but I could tell they were going to happen… I realised a lot of women were nervous about some of the bills that might get passed that would directly affect them. So yes, it’s a direct response in anticipation of what I thought would happen, and what did happen.”

Anybody know about getting this issue in the US? Either in store or shipped? The photo shoot looks stunning 😻 I found this link I believe is for shipping the magazine for preorder, but not 100% sure. Thanks!

She tells us her famed chanteuse persona has become less of a prop for her now. 'I know that if I had more of a persona [before], I have less of one now. And I think it comes down to getting a little older. Maybe I needed a stronger look or something to lean on then. But I feel like it wouldn't be hard for me today to play a mega show in jeans without rehearsing and still feel like I was coming from the right place.'

I'm loving seeing this maturation.
 

Talking about feeling more positive at this time in her life, she tells us, 'All the tough things that I have been through – that I've drawn upon [in my work] – don't exist for me anymore. Not all my romantic relationships were bad, but some of them challenged me in a way that I didn't want to be challenged and I am happy I don't have to do that now.'

That's why I'm leaving you for the music, you for the music, it's true, it's true


For me, the dream is to have a little bit of edge, the sexiness, the magnetism, the camaraderie, be on the same page and all that stuff, but without the fallout that comes from a person who is really selfish and puts only their needs first, which is like a lot of frontmen if we're talking about musicians!'

'I'm going to write a book one day called, "The curse of the frontman and why you should always date a bassist."'

86ceb3c861ac3d7b0737b2ccde488ca3.png

You can play?  :O

:hooker:


Hmmm, Mertens played bass in her band. And of course there's "Joshy & I": You play the bass...


Lana also talks about the influences on her new album, including American politics, 'I think it would be weird to be making a record during the past 18 months and not comment on how [the political landscape] was making me or the people I know feel, which is not good. It would be really difficult if my views didn't line up with what a lot of what people are saying.'

I'm both excited for some political awareness from her and worried it will completely miss the mark. That last sentence does not inspire confidence. Probably just her usual inarticulateness in interviews, but the way she worded it smacks of pandering to audience concerns, not genuinely feeling them. Also sounds downright Trumpian. Many people are saying... Cautiously optimistic though.
 

“I wrote God Bless America [a track on the album] before the Women’s Marches, but I could tell they were going to happen… I realised a lot of women were nervous about some of the bills that might get passed that would directly affect them. So yes, it’s a direct response in anticipation of what I thought would happen, and what did happen.”

This sounds more like it. Anticipating the title will be ironic/sarcastic or mournful.

No other CONFIRMED songs but there's "Chartruese" & "Abomination" (songs that have lyrics claiming to be lana, and it sounds legit.. never know though) and the controversial track "Life Is Beautiful"

I prefer this shoot cause it's a little less kitchy. But God Bless My Heart more like this will be twerkable.

"...walk in the way of my soft resurrection, lead me to war with your brilliant direction."

I love the shoot, she looks so pretty :flutter:. Also, she sounds so confident and mature in the interview! 'God Bless America' is giving me Father John Misty vibes too ... can't wait to hear it!!​

Okay holy SHIT but I literally woke up at 4 am last night because I had a dream that Lana surprise released a music video and I wanted to read the threads about it but it didn't actually happen

 

But part of the lyrics were "God Bless America, God Bless the places where we've been" 

And the music video was her on the moon meeting the astronauts from the moon landings in black and white then later her all alone because there haven't been any missions to the moon for a long time and it was a fucking social commentary holy SHIT
