Lana Del Rey has revealed that she’s recorded a cover album full of country songs.
Speaking to MOJO (print edition), the singer said that in addition to the country covers album she’s got another collection of “other folk songs” waiting to be released.
Del Rey also insisted there has always been a country tone running through her music. “I went back and listened to ‘Ride’ and ‘Video Games’ and thought, you know they’re kind of country,” she said (via ContactMusic). “I mean, they’re definitely not pop.”
She continued: “Maybe the way ‘Video Games’ got remastered, they’re pop – but there’s something Americana about it for sure.
“So let’s see how these things come out – I’m not going to have pedal steel guitar on every single thing, but it is easy for me to write.”
Del Rey previously announced the release of the single in December and confirmed that the album pre-order would arrive on the same day. She recently announced that the album would be released on March 19 and can be pre-ordered here.
