New Music: Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey is the human equivalent of marmite, bring her up in conversation and you are either greeted with exasperated eye rolls or infectious enthusiasm. For the past few months she has been silently working on her third full length, with no real leaks or news other than it is being produced by Black Keys‘ Dan Auerbach, and that the lead single was said to be called West Coast, so whether or not Meet Me By The Pale Moonlight is off the new record, only time will tell. Meet Me By The Pale Moonlight still manages to combine Lana’s obsession with both Hollywood glamour and blue collar Americana, but introduces a jazz beat and slick guitar which distance it from the mournful soundscapes which define the majority of The Paradise Edition. It’s no Video Games, but it’s sure to tide over diehard fans until Ultraviolence is released later this year.
