Lana Del Rey is vintage vixen in her new photoshoot for Flaunt mag by renowned photographer David LaChapelle.
The photos are accompanied by a wall of text that includes interviews from Lana, LaChapelle, Lust For Life collaborator Sean Lennon and more.
A highlight worth mentioning: she recorded a song titled “When the world was at war we kept dancing,” though it’s not clear if it will make the record or not. “Well, I have a song that’s quite aware about the collective worry, about whether this is the end of an era,” she said. “It’s called ‘When the world was at war we kept dancing.’ But I actually went back and forth about keeping it on the record, because I didn’t want it there if it would make people feel worse instead of better. It’s not apathetic. The tone of the production is very dark, and doesn’t lead to a ******* happy feeling. And the question it poses: Is this the end of America, of an era? Are we running out of time with this person at the helm of a ship? Will it crash? In my mind, the lyrics were a reminder not to shut down or shut off, or just don’t talk about things. It was more like stay vigilant and keep dancing. Stay awake.”
Lana released a different socially-aware song today – it’s titled “Coachella – Woodstock in my Mind.”
