There are very few artists that can sculp a universe of their own. Where every detail is compelling and every phrase is true and sincere. Lana Del Rey is among those chosen few. The line between the woman born Elisabeth Woolridge Grant and Lana Del Rey is as needless as comparing her to other artists. The Queen of Sadness can’t be of this world. From a poolside in a glamorous ruin Lana Del Rey has proven time and time again that she is nothing less than a masterful storyteller. Old Hollywood, vintage music, rockets, the Kennedys and Marilyn Manson – even though her lyrics are filled with nostalgia they remain highly contemporary and the same goes for the gloomy, dramatic music. Always cinematic and orchestral, topped with hip-hop beats and girl-group harmonies. If you add some of the best songs written this millennium, it is obvious that this is her time and we are blessed to be sharing it with her.
Lana Del Rey released her masterpiece Lust For Life in 2017 but shows no signs of slowing down. Earlier this year she gave us the two singles Mariners Apartment Complex and Venice Bitch, both taken from the coming album named Norman Fucking Rockwell. Gärdet, prepare to be transformed into Lana-land because this summer the Queen of Sadness will travel to Sweden for a highly anticipated show at Lollapalooza.
