“I’m growing my roots and meeting a lot of other friends, so I feel a little more settled… I have a friend called Ron who likes to swim with me. So every now and then, we find an empty beach, jump in and swim the length of the coast, from one side of the cove to the other.”
“I guess I have a little bit of a fantasy that really great relationships, friendships and romances can stand the test of time. Even though each person in the relationship or the group changes, they don’t change in ways that would make the relationship come to an end. The chorus [of Yosemite] is about doing things for fun, for free and doing them for the right reasons.”
“It’s about having artistic integrity; not doing things because you think they would be big, but because the message is something that’s important. And then, it’s about just being with someone because you really can’t see not having them in your life, not because it would be “beneficial” to you to be in their company. It’s that concept of just being in a relationship for 100% the right reasons. Being a good person, basically.”

This Saturday, May 20, Lana Del Rey will be performing at KROQ Weenie Roast at the StubHub Center in California, USA.
On Instagram today, Lana shared a video of her teasing a new song whilst rehearsing. She added “See u Saturday” which means this could be preparation for KROQ Weenie Roast. Maybe she’ll sing some new songs.
Lana also commented on the video saying “Cherry” along with the cherry emoji. Could Cherry be the title of the song?
The song in the video goes like this:
And then it burned off from the rush
Darlin’, darlin’, darlin’
I fall to pieces when I’m with you
I fall to pieces
My cherries and wine

After surprising fans with a new unplanned single this morning, Lana Del Rey hits us with another! She is on the latest cover of Flaunt Magazine, featuring a gorgeous old 70s styled photo shoot photographed by David LaChapelle and styled by Brett Alan Nelson.
LaChapelle commented on his experience photographing Lana:
“Lana’s a down-to-earth person. I like her writing. I saw her show at the Hollywood Bowl, and really liked the music, and that inspired the concept and ideas for the photos. Lana was interested in the artistic angle, not a promotional angle, which I really liked. Much more interested in creating art than promoting something.”
Here is a snippet from the interview with Matthew Bedard for Flaunt.
“The record has fewer dimensions,” she remarks. “But they’re more beautiful than in the past. I had no idea that would make it easier to talk about.” Has this ease with discussing the content perhaps coincided with a sort of softening, or openness toward her in the arenas of public or journalistic reception? “I feel that,” she says thoughtfully. “And it’s helped me be more open as well. Because it’s hard to talk about your innermost feelings if you feel the reception will be cold. And I hung back for a while. I did a handful of interviews, but not many in the last few years. But also I was writing and writing, and digging through stuff, and not writing things as easy to digest or discuss. It still comes from me, but as I’ve evened out as a person, I don’t have as much I don’t want to say. I feel comfortable.”

“I’d give it all away if you give me just one day to ask him one question”
Last month, Lana Del Rey attended the Coachella music festival. A few days afterwards, she shared with us part of a song she had recently written. Today, June 15, Lana surprised us with a release of the full song, which she has titled “Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind.” You can read the lyrics here.
Lana also wrote us a note, explaining how thankful she is to be able to release a song in real time. Here is what the note says if you find it difficult to read:
What a blessing it is to make music in general. And to have the freedom to put songs out about things that move me in real time. I wrote this one last month on my way back from Coachella. Thank you to my producer and engineers for turning it around so quickly. Hope you like it – the video with Starboy is out soon. x Lana
