It is not the first time and unfortunately it won’t be the last… Worldwide press is taking out of the context and doing a misinterpretation of what Lana Del Rey really said on her recent interview for Nylon magazine.
Several mass media sources are spreading that, and we state a few, “Lana Del Rey says ‘fickle muse’ casts doubt on follow-up to Born to Die LP” – The Guardian; “My muse is very fickle’: Lana Del Rey on struggling to write her new album as she bares her midriff in gothic new shoot” – Daily Mail; “Lana Del Rey Might Not Put Out a New Album” – Complex magazine;
The reality is that Lana Del Rey is actually working on her upcoming new album. Below you can read exclusive excerpts of what she and Nylon said on the article:
“This fall, the singer stars in a film of her own, Tropico, a short directed by Anthony Mandler. Meanwhile, demos from her hacked email accounts continue to surface online, including at least one she’d stated for her next full-length, tentatively scheduled for 2014.”
The couple have been recording some ’70s-style rock with producer Jonathan Wilson in Silver Lake for fun, but Del Rey characterizes her next release as a work-in-progress, done on her own terms and timetable. “When people ask me about it, I just have to be honest – I really don’t know,” she admits. “I don’t want to say, ‘Yeah, definitely the next one’s better than this one,’ because I don’t really hear a next one. My muse is very fickle. She only comes to me something, which is annoying.”
“When ‘Black Beauty’ got leaked, I was a little bit discouraged, because I usually focus an entire record around one song, or one phrase, or one title, like… ‘Black Beauty,‘” she says. In a time of contrived viral videos and choreographed twerking, the incident feels legitimately unplanned, unfortunate, and unspinnable. The leak didn’t completely crush her creativity, “but it didn’t help,” she says.”
