Lana Del Rey is featured in the February 25, 2023 issue of Billboard magazine. The photoshoot was photographed by Lia Clay Miller on January 27, 2023 at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. Lana’s hair was by Sheridan Ward at Walter Schupfer Management, with makeup by Etienne Ortega at The Only Agency. In the interview, Lana speaks to Kristin Robinson about her upcoming album, which is her most personal yet. She talks about starting out in the industry, the creative process behind ‘Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd, collaborating with Taylor Swift, and more.
Can you remember what it felt like creatively when you were just starting out?
I think back to the beginning, being in New York. I would just go to a little deli by Grand Central and all you had to do to sit at the table for hours was buy a black coffee. I remember thinking, “I’m doing it. I’m living it.” It was all very thrilling. I was so psyched back then.
You recently featured on Taylor Swift’s “Snow on the Beach.” What was collaborating with her like?
Well, first of all, I had no idea I was the only feature [on that song]. Had I known, I would have sung the entire second verse like she wanted. My job as a feature on a big artist’s album is to make sure I help add to the production of the song, so I was more focused on the production. She was very adamant that she wanted me to be on the album, and I really liked that song. I thought it was nice to be able to bridge that world, since Jack [Antonoff] and I work together and so do Jack and Taylor.
