Lana Del Rey has stated that she has “early” ideas of what she wants her next album to sound like.
The singer only released her latest album ‘Honeymoon’ in September, her third album in four years, but has already started planning its follow-up.
Del Rey features on the cover of this week’s new, free NME, saying in an interview: “I do have early thoughts about what I’d like to do with [the album]”.
She continued: “My label, Interscope, is pretty flexible and open to my records coming out at any time, so I don’t have that pressure. I’m just happy to be able to keep on making music I can stand behind. That’s enough for me.”
Elsewhere in the NME interview, Del Rey also spoke of her desire to work with cult director David Lynch.
In a 2012 H&M advert, Del Rey covered ‘Blue Velvet’, a song best known for its use in Lynch’s movie of the same name.
“I would love to do anything with David Lynch,” she told NME. “I don’t know too much about what’s going on but I certainly love the original TV series and his movies since then.”
Lynch has previously spoken highly of Del Rey, saying: “She’s got fantastic charisma, and this is a very interesting thing. It’s like she’s born out of another time. She’s got something that’s so very appealing to people, and I didn’t know that she was influenced by me”.
