The greatest hits of Lana Del Rey featuring Auto-toon LOON

 

by work, I take that to mean, it is a lot of work to remaster stuff.

 

Perhaps, an avenue to explore would be an official (on her site) archeive much like Bruce Springsteen has, with tons of not released stuff and live shows in chronological order

 

or a made-to-order mail order only older stuff box sets that don't need to be re-done, but released as-is.

 

Most of Lana's unreleased stuff is owned by Lana herself, and does not need to involve her record company at all unless a licensing deal would be made

Lana is our modern day Edith Piaf. Totally unique. a mixture of Brian WIlson Roy Orbison, Leonard Cohen, Gram Parsons, Elton & Bernie. Born to Die/Paradise is comparable to Elton's Captain Fantastic. All the records need to be listened whole. Waiting for a box set vinyl of all 400 songs not on any lp

With so many of these songs already made, I imagine not all would need too much altering, though I'm sure a few will be changed up.

 

If she releases this, the label doesn't really need to pay for that much surely. Some song release rights and studio time at the most would be where costs lie, I mean, didn't Lana say she built a studio in her house in L.A?.....I think. Either way, she is well connected with producers/musicians, surely she can pull a few strings to get this project off the ground at a small cost.

I doubt this will be pushed as a major release, so its not like there will be all this money invested in promotion. Plus shes not a mega seller anyway, not since UV, so its not like the studio need her to make up huge cost amounts, especially while shes touring all the time and generating returns for the label with that.

 

She has a decent sized  fanbase, the label wont forget her #1 LFL debut, that gives her a lot of credit, even if final numbers aren't massive, they aren't massive for most people, she still proves she has an audience. I doubt they'd mind handing over some money for a small release like this, shes not a huge costly type of artist for them compared to other acts.

You just said everything I was trying to type last night but I was too high and gave up lol

There are lots of ways this could see the light of day and still give her label a profit, I'm sure !

I really hope she goes through with this unreleased compilation, it would just be so cool to have even though we've already heard the songs. It would be even better if there were CDs and vinyls with it

I'd rather she not release unreleased songs. I rather have new stuff. Why get songs we already have?

I get this but at the same time it could mean amazing re-recordings and new versions with different productions and maybe even different lyrics and such.... it'd just be perfect and would probably appeal to almost if not ALL stans

Because so much of the material is excellent and only a small portion of her fans have heard most it. It deserves to be out there in HQ for the masses to find it, not streamed on youtube.

Because I still believe I heard Queen of Disaster a whole summer on radio before I even knew Lana that well and can you imagine how much money she would've gotten from that? IT WAS ON REPEAT on the channel I was listening to, several times a day they played it! I'd love to get my hands on an album with unreleased songs because I love them and wanna support her by buying them, but I also really want radio stations to play her songs so people stop thinking of her as some sad chick who wants to die - that's not the Lana I know! Yes, she has melancholy lyrics and slow beats, but she's also full of life, sassy and sweet. :flutter:
Can you imagine turning on the radio and hearing Hollywood, Hundred Dollar Bill or any other bop being played? Imagine your friends like them too?
I want that for Lana.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning to red, blue and yellow skies
