The first magazine cover of the “Lust For Life” era is London based magazine DAZED! Lana Del Rey graces their Spring/Summer 2017 edition wearing elegant feathers for not only one, but TWO covers!
The interview is a conversation between Lana and Courtney Love which was conducted by Natasha Stagg. Styling director Robbie Spencer and photographer Charlotte Wales are to thank for Lana’s ethereal appearance!
On Instagram, Lana said “the interview was a conversation with one of the baddest bitches in town, Courtney Love, God only knows what we said.”
The issue is available worldwide on April 20 and can be ordered here.
To Lana: “What I hear in your music is that you’ve created a world, you’ve created a persona, you’ve created this kind of enigma that I never did” – Courtney Love.
“Adolescents know when something comes from somebody’s heart. It might not be the song that sells, but when people hear it, they know it.”
“If music is really in your blood and you don’t want to do anything else… you don’t care about the money until later. It’s about the vibe.”
Today, April 11, Lana Del Rey revealed the cover of her upcoming album, “Lust For Life,” which was photographed by her sister Chuck Grant. Lana posted it on all of her social media.
Lana’s hair was done by Anna Cofone and her make-up by Pamela Cochrane.
On March 30, Lana Del Rey announced the name of her new and upcoming album on social media along with a trailer, which can be viewed below.
The record is titled “Lust For Life” and although there is no official release date as of yet, Lana teases that it is “coming soon.”
The album trailer features a mysterious, explanatory voiceover from Lana, along with hints of old Hollywood, space and even witchcraft.

On February 24, Lana Del Rey spoke to Jo Whiley from BBC Radio 1 to promote her new single LOVE.
Lana revealed that she is in a rehearsal space in Los Angeles working on something with Miles Kane of The Last Shadow Puppets. She said it’s for a surprise, adding it’s “so funny.”
Jo also spoke to Lana about preparation for the Brit Awards – the dress, what’s in her handbag and what goes through her head whilst she’s in front of the camera flashes.
You may recall just a few weeks ago, Lana was spotted singing karaoke at a bar with Miles, and also Alex Turner of The Last Shadow Puppets.
On February 23, Lana Del Rey tweeted that, at the stroke of midnight, the “ingredients” can be found online on the following dates: Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23.
These dates just happen to line up with the dates witches are casting a mass spell against President Donald Trump. Witches all around the world are gathering to perform a binding spell to prevent Trump from harming other people.
In order for the spell to work, the witchiness must take place at the stroke of midnight on every waning crescent moon. It is important to note that the spell is said to be the most effective on June 21 as that is the summer solstice. June 21 is also Lana Del Rey’s birthday.
Some fans believe that the first ingredient is the single LOVE, believing Feb 24 to have been the official planned release date before the single was leaked. Lana’s official website changed it’s layout to promote LOVE today which further backs up this theory.
Or are we overthinking this? Maybe it has nothing to do with Lana’s upcoming album and she’s just encouraging people to join in the spell casting, because the ingredients for the ritual can be found online.
Either way, Lana was filming a video on February 23 which could indicate that a new song and video will be released soon. There is also another theory that her fourth studio album could be released on June 21. Lana was photographed with Chuck Grant, Alan Champion, Hunter Ray Crowder, Joanne Della Ragione and Alex Lill (the director).
