    Maybe she meant "What can I say now," as if she's talking to herself, saying "I'm so frustrated that so many artists are announcing country albums that I just don't know what to say to you about Lasso at this moment."  
     
    What other artists are doing should make no difference. She's Lana Fucking Del Rey, having some of her best years ever, who cares if others are releasing country albums or if there is an actual trend in play, however it came about?
     
    Releasing a country album is not an original idea in and of itself; it's one of the most recognizable and oldest of all American genres.   
     
    So with luck, Lasso will be released on schedule.

    We know she makes offhand and seemingly irresponsible remarks in public and to the media all the time. And we know she changes titles, concepts, schedules, and release dates all the time as well. So I think it's fair to say, based on those facts, that we're at a 50-50 situation, but hope makes me think we're closer to a 70-30 situation.

    As hot as she is right now, and seeing that most people, including critics, can see past a 'has Lana jumped on the country trend bandwagon?' thing, the smart thing for her to do is to release Lasso as planned, unchanged, on schedule.

    She could have simply said: "I don't want to talk about it yet, but it's coming this year" 
     
    but she was more like "country was a good idea at the time, but somehow things have changed now"

    This whole interview was interesting 
     
    she made absolutely no sense about Lasso, but I like the idea of her lyrics being inspired by her having fun and being at ease
     
    but Lana, imma need you to further explain yourself because no, I don’t know what you mean. I don’t think the album was scrapped because Jack has also talked about it and called it ‘Fucking brilliant’ so idk it would seem odd to completely scrap the whole album (and she just told Elle earlier this month it was coming out this year still). But yeah I have no idea what that whole answer means. I need clarification 
     
    I also love how she just makes up things, because people definitely applauded when she said the music industry was going country so idk where that 5000 people being silent narrative came from

    My interpretation is that the album is more LFL-esque than it was supposed to be. I mentioned it in the Tough thread, but the fact it’s getting a MV treatment, I wonder if her label pushed that song to be the lead and reshaped the sound of Lasso. Although I can’t see her label imposing anything on her since she was the second most-stramed female artist last year on Spotify (even if OB wasn’t very « GP oriented »)

    She said recently that she still plans on releasing it this year so I doubt that she scrapped it unless it was a last week decision 
     
    I think she just meant that it's not going to be as country as people expected after her initial comments on the record.

    I'm not reading too much into the interview, I think she just doesn't want to talk about Lasso in advance until it's time to roll it out. I also don't think she's worried about trendhopping, she literally said the music industry is going country so she obviously knew a bunch of big releases this year would be country. She probably said that to get ahead of it and show that she isn't just following the trend and has been working on a country album for years.
     
    I have a feeling Lasso is still on track and she just doesn't want to discuss it right now.
