Lana Del Rey is the cover of the french magazine “Les Inrockuptibles” this week. The magazine revealed a new interview by the french journalist Jean-Daniel Beauvallet, who already published an interview of Lana in January 4th.
In the interview Lana explaines that she worked around 8 months on “The Paradise Edition”. She has begun around the time after the release of “Born To Die” (January) at the Santa Monica studio in Los Angeles. “Bel Air” is her favorite song of Paradise.
She is writing news songs for some movies with the composer Daniel Heath at the moment. The french journalist explains in the interview that Lana showed him some melodies she recently made: she sang a part of a new song acapella for him and he started shaking! (A journalist, but maybe a fan too!)
Lana wants to make new versions for some songs of the 1st album: she loves the new version of Yayo, and she wants to do the same with “Kill Kill” and “Mermaid Motel”.
She explains that Paradise is a sort of new album, totally different from Born To Die. She didn’t like the production and the new versions of songs like “This Is What Makes Us Girls”. She wanted new songs, being more “Sixties”, “peaceful” and “american”: she didn’t ask the producers to put beats and additionals sounds on her news songs, like for “Born To Die”. In the end, she said about the new songs of Paradise: “It’s always me, but without make-up”.
