Miles Kane recently spoke about how Lana Del Rey would feature on his upcoming album, ‘Coup de Grace which is due in the summer. In another interview with BBC Radio 1, on April 16, Annie Mac played the track in question, titled ‘Loaded’. Lana doesn’t sing on the track, but Miles explains that she co-wrote the song along with himself and Jamie T.
“Last January, Jamie T was in LA doing a little gig and we’d planned to some writing together that we’d been saying we’d do for 10 years. As I walk in [to the gig], Lana Del Rey was there.”
Miles says he’d just gone through a rough break-up. “She was like, ‘What’s up with you? Girl trouble?’ I go, ‘yeah can you tell?’”
“So the next day me and Jamie started writing ‘Loaded’ […] We started writing that tune and she facetimed us and she was like ‘What are you up to? Can I come over?’ So we we’re like ‘this is mental.’”
“She came over and we finished writing loaded that afternoon. There’s a lot of tunes that were written around that time, but this one’s stuck around.”
On March 29, Lana Del Rey shared a snippet of a new song of hers titled ‘Happiness Is A Butterfly’. She posted it to her Twitter and Instagram, and shared some of the lyrics!
happiness is a butterfly
try to catch it like every night
it escapes from my hands
every day is a lullaby
I hum it on the phone like every night
and sing it for my babies on the tourlife
Lana also commented on the post, saying “don’t try too hard to catch it … just dance until it finds u”.
