    In May 2024, Lana Del Rey was photographed by Wyatt Spain Winfrey in Louisiana.
    Her hair was styled by Sheridan Ward and her makeup was done by Pamela Cochrane.

    sirens is my 2nd favorite lana del rey album honestly... <3 so many INCREDIBLE songs, and some of her greatest lyrics can be found on sirens, despite it being recorded so early on in her career it really reminds me of my hometown on cloudy days in late fall and early spring, when the grass has lost it's vibrant green and the trees are completely bare, genuinely an underrated folk gem that deserves more love and recognition 
     
    i have many favorites that i especially adore off of sirens, but peace is my #1, it just touches my soul so painfully and wonderfully <3

    Rock and roll heavy metal baby
    Like a broken record, it's all the same
    And sadly I'm mad
    I want you to take me tonight
    In blood diamond, blue velvet nights
    Jupiter rising, dawn past daylight
     
    Hollywood Jesus my own faux comfort
    Crying in your arms when I'm hurt
    I have ten million questions
    With no ease by your divine interventions
    I want to fly 
    Beyond the veil where angels glide
    I want to understand
    Is there peace on the other side
    Is there peace on the other side

    In 2015, I got a tattoo that said "ultraviolence" on my collarbone. I wanted my own font so I removed the serifs from a free blackletter font. Nine years later, I'm having my final exam of the best type design master in the world in a week... UV changed my life. It will always be my favourite album universe

    I am so confused. The NME interview was very bizarre, and so was her "oh my god" reaction to that fan tonight, lol. Apparently, the project *exists* (Antonoff called it "brilliant"), but there's something about it that makes Lana hesitant and unsure. Has she changed her mind about the album's direction and sonic style, or is she unsure about the critical reception?
     
    - Last spring, Antonoff mentioned that he and Lana are delving into a creatively exciting and very strange place. It seemed that he was implying that they have been cooking something experimental. 
    - In September, Lana said that the next album would be more "Americana" with structurally and lyrically simpler songs compared to the more chaotic and excessively wordy Ocean tracks. 
    - The first time she mentioned that she's going "country" was during that show when she gave an award to Antonoff. She also implied that "Lasso" has been a passion project that she's been working for 4 years, and Antonoff even traveled around several places in the U.S. with her, in order to write and record new music. 
    - Lana worked with Quavo right after the Grammy's. 
    - During the NME interview, she mentioned that the new songs are "American songbook"-esque. But she also sounded quite unsure about the album, not necessarily in terms of its existence, but mostly in terms of what it might evolve into (artistically), or in terms of critical reception. 
     
    My two cents:
     
    When Lana (enthusiastically) mentioned that "Lasso" is a country album, she had her recent collaboration with Luke Laird in mind. She usually gets very excited whilst working on something very specific; remember her W Magazine interview that made us expect an album filled with "Fingertips"-esque tracks? - and it low-key colors her perspective, lol. So, while I do think that the "country" element will be there, I doubt that it's going to be *the* defining sound of the album, which might explain why she's gotten a bit hesitant when attempting to describe the album. "Americana" and "American songbooks" are different terms, that imply a much broader soundscape. Not to mention the Quavo collaboration and the "strange" stuff she's been working on with Antonoff (and who knows what else at this point), assuming all this stuff has been put together in one album. 
     
    Another explanation would be that she has changed the soundscape of the album dramatically. In fact, there might not be strong "country" elements at all. Her reaction to how "quiet" the room went when she announced the album is quite telling. Did she get cold feet? Does she feel that she might be misinterpreted as someone who's simply following the trend? Who knows. The fact that she mentioned that the songs are more "American songbook"-esque means that she probably hasn't cancelled the album yet, though. But the Quavo collaboration - and who knows what else? - and her recent looks could be an indication of a completely different approach.
     
    Which leads me to a different interpretation of what she's been implying so far: what if the album is not a "typical" country/Americana album, and it's a little bit bolder/experimental or simply not easily categorized and defined in terms of its sound and style? Perhaps Lana is scared of the reception; critics and fans might be expecting something more "classic" or specific in general, but we are not getting that at all. "Cowboy Carter" was well-received, but what if she feels that she might be misunderstood (once again)? The "not following the trends" is a valid explanation of her potentially scrapping or changing the project a lot, but it doesn't sound very plausible, IMO. Assuming that it's been a passion project and taking into consideration her knowledge of the fact that the industry is going "country", I doubt that she's simply cancelling the entire project. 
     
    I don't know what to expect at this point, lol. The latest IG post feels like a prelude of what's about to come in terms of the new era's aesthetics. It feels intensely contemporary and urban (the street/car photos), but also alluringly gothic, nostalgic and quite unsettling (the swamps, the trees, the diner etc.). This is a far cry from the generic "yeehaw" aesthetics, so maybe she's simply unsure about the overall reception to this potentially singular take on country/American songbooks/whatever's been on her mind lately? I think that the album is probably not coming in September - I'd say Spring 2025 is likelier -, because the album just keeps evolving into something stranger and more eclectic. The "Lust for Life" comparison might be apt: this could be a mixture of trap, experimental alternative, hip hop, country, and throwback Americana ballads. Or...maybe not! She's so random indeed...

    I have to say I quite like this aesthetic. The pic on the Tough teaser gives off similar vibes. It sort of feels like it bridges a lot of the themes from previous eras all the way back to AKA. Also I’m interested in a more Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana southern style than full blown yeehaw Texas cowboy which has been super overdone (this year particularly so with Beyonce’s album)

    It is giving very southern gothic vibes which is puzzling to me because the album is called Lasso so it should be western vibes but that is too logical for Lana

    I’ve been thinking of you so much today beautiful girl!  How lucky I was to meet you in line at her show, and how lucky you were to dance and talk with her recently. It truly feels like it’s coming together full circle and the universe is aligned  I feel there’s a big chance that the Wichita show is brought up too, cause I plan to bring her flowers again like I did that night. I planned to tell her how I met you there and became friends as long as it’s ok with you of course ❤️ and any time you’re back around these parts you know I’d love for us to go out dancing too and catch up 🥰 you are the sweetest gem of a person Elle, thank you so so much!

    This is AMAZING!!! Oh babe, I’m so happy for you. This couldn’t have gone to a more deserving person in the whole state of Kansas - you’re truly the sweetest soul and I’m still so touched by your kindness when we met at her show in Kansas a few years back! What an incredible win that I’m sure will create memories that will last a lifetime. Have the best time ever!! Xx

    This reminds me there was a coffee date with Lana raffle held by a radio station in Portland and the winner during the meet was like recording her and giggling and shit while Lana was telling them to stop recording  They posted the clips online too 
     
    You're so lucky though, I could only ever dream of something like this. Have a great time!
