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”.

Lana spoke to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio. You can listen to the full interview here on Apple Music, however here are some highlights:
On Relationship with Rocky
“He was in my video for National Anhtem and I’ve been in touch with him since then. He travels a lot but whenver he’s in town.. I’ll come down to the studio and see what he’s working on, do background vocals on his tracks. There probably are lots of tracks sometimes that we’ve both worked on. We do them and forget them.”
On Groupie Love
“I think I had four tracks I wanted to play for Rocky. I played them for Hector first (one of ASAP’s producers). He thought out of all of them, Rocky would like Groupie Love. I played it for Rocky and Rocky loved it. He came down and he did a verse. A couple months later he decided he wanted to do it different so he did a different verse, then we changed up the production a bit.”
On Her Tracklisting
“My tracklisting changed a lot in the past few months. The middle section has a lot of fire in it, even though it’s not that fast; the beats are hard.”
On If She’s Awkward
“Yeah, I can be so awkward. Depending. I mean I don’t really care that I’m awkward.”
On A World Tour
“I have five one off shows that people probably wouldn’t know about. It’s weird with the festivals because it almost feels like a tour, but it’s not. I really want to go out with somebody that I love. I want to go out on the road. Like I did with Courtney Love. 2 Years ago.”
“I’ve done so much with Miles Kane. The guys from TLSP were Working on a side project. It was like December through March. It seemed like a good idea, but after listening to all the songs I felt like they were really for Miles. For his solo stuff. I hope they keep the tracks that we did. We did so many of them. I was doing some stuff with a couple of people but I don’t really want them to come out. [..] We were talking about Marina before, we always say we’ll do something but I don’t know what she’s gonna do with her music.”
“It’s a track I spoke about online and in interviews and it’s just not on the record. It’s too happy. We’re just not there yet. JK. That was a weird thing to say. I’m getting to the place I was singing about in Yosemite, and I’m just not there yet.”
