Love, love, love the interview! I think it always comes through when Lana is comfortable with an interviewer -- nothing felt forced or ill-phrased here, which is always so nice. Such a good balance of a conversational feel, and deeper questions. 

 

It's seemed to me that Lana's become much more transparent about her creative process, her emotions, and her past (her musical past, especially!) since the LFL era started, which totally thrills me. Hearing her little quips about old songs (All Smiles!!!!!!) has been so neat, and really getting into her head and her heart when it comes to writing the album has made me enjoy LFL so much more! 

 

It's like we're finally getting to peek behind the curtain that separates Lana Del Rey from Elizabeth Grant... and, yet, she still hasn't (and probably won't ever) given *all* the mystery away  :justride:

 

(also: not a huge fan of the cover choice? something about that pic looks *off* to me. the one of her on the road and the one in the white dress are much prettier and much more flattering, imo)

"Okay, so “crossing the threshold” was actually a reference to this little concept, or diagram, that’s called “The Hero’s Journey.” This writer, Joseph Campbell, came up with this little model. And it’s all about this character who has a lot of trouble at the beginning of the story, and then somewhere in the middle of the story, crosses the threshold to sort of face the monster, or the challenger, and in the end hopefully emerges triumphant once he’s beaten the bad guy or whatever. And I had been talking about that with my engineer, and I thought: I don’t usually use metaphors, but I loved the line “crossing the threshold,” and I wanted to bring it into that song I’d already started writing. So I changed those first few lines, so that woven in would be the idea of the hero’s journey. Because I really liked the idea of changing your own past. I think that’s what I wanted to do. I didn’t really know if I had control over doing that for a long time, and yea, I didn’t know what would be on the other side of me making a couple of really strong personal decisions and statement. Even just using my own voice to talk about stuff, that was different from “Love.” And I didn’t really know how the whole thing would go. But I liked so much that it would be my authentic voice at the time, so I just decided that to write what I was feeling was important enough to cross that threshold in the music. It’s kind of hard for me to explain, because there’s so many different levels to it: like, I’m making literary allusions, but I’m also really trying to make changes in my own life. It’s hard to articulate it eloquently!"

I wrote four songs that didn’t end up going on the record that were a little more politically oriented

Okayyyy not to be that annoying bitch but what are these. Is she mentioning new songs we don't know about, or are the ones we know about political and I just didn't catch that?? Sorry I literally hate to sound like a crazy stan whenever outtakes are mentioned but I can't help it, I wanna know!!!  :defeated: I wanna hear them

Btw this interview was so cute. I love that she's becoming more open about her processes and inspirations and such. I love hearing her talk about her art  :flutter:

Love this shoot. I grew up passing through Malibu Canyon, and I still do. Very sentimental. I agree @Coney Island King, the cover photo ain't great. The one where she is walking in the middle of the road should be the cover. I love that photo so much, perfect cover for the Heroin single ;)

These photographs are heavenly, especially the one in black and white in the field. The interview was great, too. It's cool to see her evolving. It makes me really interested to see where she'll take the next album.

Yosemite is a political song :slayty:

 

Jk, i think we don't know about them. I may reach a bit here but we haven't heard the rest of the lyrics of RBFY, maybe it has "woke" lyrics that we don't know about (I think the song is more about herself than the world, though).

 

So far the LFL outtakes we know about are:

-Yosemite

-BAR

-Roses Bloom For You

-Wild One maybe

-I don't know if we should count Something Real since it was reworked into 13 Beaches so it's technically on LFL.

-Political outtake #1

-Political outtake #2

-Political outtake #3

-Political outtake #4

 

Or maybe not outtakes, maybe she just wrote them but didn't record them but that would be weird for Lana. Who knows.

Wonderful surprise to end an amazing year for her!! She does look kind of botched but it's not helped by the work on the pics. Really pretty setting though

I would like to hear what she'd said in the 4 cut songs. I would assume it would be more anti-trump stuff. the inner conservative cries in me that she made some right-wing themed songs. better question is why were they cut? what's something more taboo than saying she hexed trump? lol

Prob because she already has 3 political songs and another that was written in mind of the political-sphere lmfao. Her label prob told her to cut them off, or it could've been naturally scrapped a la BAR etc. They didn't even want her having GBA as a single, doubt they'd want 8 tracks out of 20 to be political.

It would be really sick if Lana did a follow up to LFL, a la Paradise that featured her more political/happier/whatever lame excuse she gave not to put the songs on the album. Also I wish the photoshop wasn't so shitty on these photos, because this could've been a really beautiful and mature shoot. Just like the last Billboard shoot that also had botched photoshop.   :um3:
