She will release her fourth album ‘Lust For Life‘ on Friday.
“I’ve done so much with Miles,” she said when asked about working with him. “I think at first me and Miles and some of the guys in The Last Shadow Puppets were working on a side project and had our own band.
“This was December through March,” she continued. “I didn’t have a world tour planned and they didn’t have anything either cos Alex [Turner] is working on his stuff, but, after listening to the songs, I felt like the songs were probably for Miles’ solo stuff. Him and [Mini Mansions and The Last Shadow Puppets bassist] Zach Dawes are working on that.”
Del Rey also revealed that she has five one-off shows booked at the moment and discussed a track called ‘Yosemite’ that didn’t make it onto ‘Lust For Life‘.
“I’m getting to the place I was singing about in ‘Yosemite’ and I’m just not there yet. I think I felt by the end of this record I’d be in a totally different spot, but then I realised I was still figuring out so much stuff. ‘Yosemite’ is an idealistic, return to nature zone that I’ve dipped into.”
