Lana Del Rey: Lust For Life Is The 'opposite' Of Born To Die


Lana Del Rey Stevie Nicks

Lana Del Rey insists her new album is the ''complete opposite'' of 'Born To Die'.

The 32-year-old musician released her debut studio album five years ago in 2012, and as she gears up to release her fifth venture 'Lust For Life' next month, the star insists her sound couldn't be more evolved.

She said: ''They're complete opposites, and it's funny because when I chose the title, I didn't think about it right away. It was the title of the first song I wrote for this record. But there are so many things that have gotten me to the point that I'm at now. One of them is just time. And because I do write everything myself, I just wanted to chronicle how I was feeling honestly, in the moment, for each record.''

G-Eazy's New Album Reflects 'new Chapter' In Life


Lana Del Rey

G-Eazy's new album will represent the ''next chapter'' of his life.

The 28-year-old musician - whose real name is Gerald Earl Gillum - is gearing up to release his fifth studio album 'The Beautiful and Damned' later this year, and has said the music on the record will explore the ''yin and yang'' of his personality.

He said: ''This is the next chapter of Gerald. I think [the fans] know me well enough by now, so this is just the next chapter of my life. I'm further exploring my Gemini; you know, the duality and the split personality of who I am. That's 'The Beautiful and Damned'. There's multiple layers to the title and the concept of the album, but that's one of the better messages. I'm exploring that yin and yang of my personality.''

Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon Album Review


In this somewhat sanctimonious and cynical world in which we live, where everything is analysed to the Nth degree and there is more time spent looking at flaws and faults than achievement and artistry, it would be quite easy to be derisory about Lana Del Rey (many of her detractors already have been). I think some are happier just to pick holes whilst others are just missing the point and don't get it. Either way they are losing out.

Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon Album Review

Lana Del Rey is unique. Her whole image, persona, style, song writing and delivery is unparalleled in contemporary music. Whether you think it's conceptualised or cliched doesn't really matter to me because the end result is such sublime music. She may be mocked and mimicked in equal measure but no one does what she does so well; there is no one who can touch her as a torch song singer.

Lana Del Rey is like a David Lynch dream realised. She flirts with the seedy, sleazy and subversive but sells the seductive, sultry chanteuse so well. Lana lives in a world between twilight and dusk where lamp light and shadows make for a sense of foreboding unease. She's a guilty pleasure that resides in a perversely attractive dimly lit underworld. On her fourth album, 'Honeymoon', Lana barely sets foot into daylight, she inhabits a world of cocktail dresses and kitten heels, double-breasted wide pinstriped suits and brogues, flock wallpaper, velvet and velour and you have to say she's in her element.

His name will be doubtlessly familiar to those fans of the rap world, having began his career in hip hop, but now he's set to make waves as a songwriter, enlisting some of the greatest vocalists and performers to work with him on his first release; an impressive feat for someone who started out working in a home studio in New York before dropping out of school.

Marilyn Manson Lana Del Rey Eli Roth

Last month a controversial NSFW video leaked online, directed by Eli Roth, which depicted singer Lana Del Rey being raped. The footage was said to have been shot for a Marilyn Manson music video, however the singer’s camp quickly released a statement denying his involvement. Now Manson has finally spoken out about the video and the exact nature of his involvement.

Marilyn MansonMarilyn Manson has spoken for the first time about the controversial Lana Del Rey video

Back when the video leaked online in November, a statement from Manson’s camp read, “"Manson did not direct this, shoot it, nor was it for a Marilyn Manson video or outtake footage made by him or to be used by him with his music.” Adding, “It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else's Lana Del Rey footage.”

Iggy Azalea Won't Take Nothing From Nobody, Especially "Old Men" Like Eminem


Eminem Iggy Azalea Lana Del Rey

It’s kind of a given in showbiz that fading celebs will do pretty much anything to inspire shock, awe and the occasional dollar flying their way. Enter Eminem and his recent string of rather violent, offensively unfunny lyrics directed at his fellow musicians of the female variety.  After Lana Del Rey, Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea was the latest to come under fire, with Shady’s latest leaked track, Vegas, featuring the following disturbing lyrics (trigger warning applies): Put that shit away Iggy/ You don't wanna blow that rape whistle on me.

Eminem
I know he has an album to promote, but was that really necessary?

The lyrics come just days after Eminem threatened to punch Lana Del Rey in the face in his freestyle rap video SHADYXVTHE CXVPHER off his upcoming Shady XV compilation album.

This Is Not A Drill. Lorde Is Curating The Soundtrack To "Mockingjay - Part I"


Lorde Taylor Swift The Civil Wars Kanye West Lana Del Rey Animal Collective

Ella Yelich-O’Connor, whom you may know better as Lorde, is 17 years old, an outspoken feminist and took the music industry by storm in 2013. It’s hard to think of anyone better suited to curate the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I. Lionsgate just made the announcement yesterday, so it’s time to get hella excited.

Lorde
We can totally see Lorde in heroine mode, fighting for the districts, by the way.

We can expect Lorde to assemble a full-on HBIC soundtrack – Marina and the Diamonds, some of her contemporary inspirations like Lana Del Rey, Animal Collective, Kanye West, Yeasayer and others, who are all on the list of likely contributors as far as we’re concerned. Lorde’s friend and fellow feminist Taylor Swift created the lead single for the first Hunger Games soundtrack with The Civil Wars, so we’d be surprised, if she didn’t at least contribute a chorus here and there.

Contrary To Her Song Lyrics, Lana Del Rey Worked Her Way To The Top


Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey is no stranger to vicious rumours, but she definitely did not sleep her way to the top. And she’s actually quite upset about that, the Ultraviolence songstress shared in an interview recently. Despite the fact that her new album contains a song called F****d My Way To The Top, it was made just for a laugh, apparently. Del Rey has given plenty of uber-serious (and some outright worrying) interviews in the past. This was not one of them.

Lana Del Rey was not an overnight success.

"You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals," the 29-year-old told Complex magazine for its August/September issue.

Sam Smith Beaten By Lana Del Rey To Billboard No.1


Sam Smith Lana Del Rey Lily Allen

Besides a promising musician, Sam Smith’s debut record has also shown him to be a savvy businessman – but not enough. In an effort to boost US sales and get the album to Number 1 on the Billboard 200, Smith’s management kept In The Lonely Hour off Spotify. The album did well, selling 166,000 copies in its first week, but ultimately fell short of Lana Del Rey’s sophomore effort Ultraviolence. The sultry pop record sold 182,000 units for Capitol Records, making it the biggest (bigger) debut of Lana’s career.

Lana Del Rey
Despite Smith's Spotify gamble, this round went to Lana.

Still, it wasn’t a bad week for Smith. Besides the respectable debut of In The Lonely Hour,  the singer-songwriter also discovered a lost connection recently. The saga of Smith’s relation to Lily Allen and her brother, Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen unfolded over Twitter, when Smith tweeted at the Sheezus hitmaker that, according to his parents, they were third cousins. To his surprise, Lily quickly responded, confirming his suspicion.

So Who Was Lana Del Rey's Boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill?


Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey appears to be now back on the market after splitting from Barrie-James O’Neill, the singer’s boyfriend/rumoured fiancee. Whilst the split has probably been the cause of some summertime sadness for superstar Lana, what about poor Barrie? Despite dating the headlin-making Lana, Barrie managed to spend most of the couple’s three year relationship flying under the showbiz radar. So since it might be goodbye for good, just who is Barrie-James O’Neill?

Lana Del Rey and Barrie James O'NeillA couple no more? Lana Del Rey and Barrie-James O'Neill

Before he starting dating Lana, Scottish Barrie-James O’Neill (who has very luscious hair and apparently goes by just Barrie) was the frontman of Kassidy, a folk-rock-indie band. He was first rumoured to be dating Lana in 2011 when the couple attended the Tartan Clef Awards together in November. The following February they then confirmed they were indeed an item, with Barrie telling The Sun he had “no idea” how he ended up bagging pop star Lana.

"Embrace Life": Frances Bean Cobain Warns Lana Del Rey Over Death Wish


Lana Del Rey Frances Bean Cobain Courtney Love Kurt Cobain

Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, has lashed out at pop star Lana Del Rey over quotes printed in a recent interview with The Guardian in which Del Rey expresses a desire to be dead.

In a conversation discussing Lana's heroes, including Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse, who happen to be dead, Lana revealed her disenchantment with fame and attraction to death. "I wish I was dead already," she said, adding "I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am."

On Sunday, Frances Bean, who lost her father to suicide at a young age, called out Del Rey in a series of strong, but not overly harsh, tweets. "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," she warned.

Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence Album Review


Having exploded with 2012's 'Born To Die' giving mainstream pop a more alternative figure, Lana Del Ray is back with her third album 'Ultraviolence'. Given the mass success of its predecessor which was loved by commercial pop fans just as much as it was indie fans, can album three live up to the buzz of 'Born To Die'?

Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence Album Review

'Ultraviolence' gets off to a mixed start. Opener 'Cruel World' has a cool 60s/70s psychedelic vibe to it with bright, but lonely guitar chords. Lana Del Rey's unmistakable voice strengthens the song with her haunting tone singing lines with lyrical themes of freedom, e.g. 'Finally happy now you're gone'. While it's not overly upbeat sonically, the lyrics remain positive. It's a decent chilled out number, but quite light, with little to keep your mind from wandering. The fault is in that it's perhaps too long, as it feels like its run its course by the forth minute out of six. The title track has strong strings, but obvious piano keys, and the minimal drum beat increases the morbidity that Del Rey was clearly going for. Lyrically, the chorus is weakened by the over-repeated title and the Madonna - 'Vogue'-esque spoken word part does not fit in the rest of it; these two small things make the track sound rushed and spoil the overall feel.

The first major strength on the album comes in the shape of 'Shades Of Cool', with its guitar riff that sounds like a laid back rendition of the James Bond theme. The chorus is a good percentage more lush, with Del Rey's voice more angelic and some subtle strings coming into the mix. Unlike 'Cruel World', this is relaxing, but actually has some interesting ideas at play to prevent you from drifting off completely. The sinister, not too in-your-face guitar solo definitely suggests a Portishead influence.

Lana Del Rey And Dan Auerbach's 'Ultraviolence' Conceived In New York Strip Club

Lana Del Rey and The Black Keys' guitarist and vocalist Dan Auerbach have decided to work together after enjoying each other's company in an unusual location - a strip club. 

Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey and Dan Auerbach ended up in a New York strip club.

It seems the pair had not previously met but were aware of each other's music. In an interview with The Sun, the singer described her meeting with Auerbach in New York and how the pair had met for dinner and wound up in a strip club. She said ''Dan and I weren't friends before this. We both knew each other's music, but it's not that we listened to it a lot of the time. The thing that was fun about Dan was we went out one night for a meal and ended up in a strip club in New York."

Lana Del Rey - West Coast Single Review


Being one of the most interesting pop stars of recent years, Lana Del Rey has become particularly popular for her unique pop sound influenced by more niche genres like art rock and trip-hop. With third album 'Ultraviolence' due to be released on June 14th2014 via Polydor/Interscope, here is the much-anticipate first single 'West Coast'.

Lana Del Rey - West Coast Single Review

First thing's first, not much has changed with Del Rey's sound. The moody but soulful vocals are still there and still as stunning as ever. As she starts to seductively whisper 'Down of the west coast', Del Rey sets the scene for the journey the song will take you on. The lyrics go on to tell you a story of what you can assume is a failing relationship as she desperately sings, 'I wanna say I miss you so much, but something keeps me really quiet'. The beauty of Del Rey's vocals is further increased as she hazily croons her way through the chorus.  

An interesting point in the lyrics is how Del Rey lists the assets of the West Coast: 'Down on the West Coast, they got their icons, their silver starlets, their Queens of Saigon', before adding: 'And you've got the music, you've got the music, in you, don't you?' It can either be conceived as lyrics made to empower the listener, or Del Rey questioning the greatness of the person she's singing about.

Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.

We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.
