Song features on The Weeknd's album 'Beauty Behind The Madness'
The Weeknd performed at The Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday (December 9), with Del Rey joining the R&B singer for the song, which featured on Abel Tesfaye’s recent album ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’.
The Weeknd’s album Beauty Behind the Madness features a duet with Lana Del Rey called “Prisoner”. Last night, during his concert at the Forum in Los Angeles, Abel Tesfaye brought out Del Rey to perform the song, as SPIN points out. Watch footage of their duet below.
Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey is on the cover of this week’s new, free NME.
In the interview, the singer admitted she was interested in recording the theme to James Bond film Spectre, saying there are songs on her latest album which would have worked for the spy thriller.
Sam Smith’s ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ was picked for the theme to this year’s film, which once again starred Daniel Craig in the title role. Prior to the announcement of Smith’s involvement, many fans felt Del Rey’s drama-filled ballads would have been the perfect fit for the franchise.
Speaking to NME as part of this week’s cover story in the free magazine, Del Rey agrees. “I would’ve done it if I was asked but I wasn’t asked,” she said. “I love all of the Bond music that’s been put out over the years and I love soundtracks in general. There are a couple of songs on this record that have a Bond feel like ‘24’ and ‘Swan Song’.”
