"You got the music in you, don't you?"
Lana Del Rey has now released her new album "Ultraviolence". Listening to it, you can see that this album ties in with the well known. Nevertheless the musician seems much more grown up and not as fragile as on the previous album "Born To Die". "Super-8 films for the ears" is how the artist herself likes to describe her new songs
Her new songs offer complexity and Lana shows what she can do with her voice. Sometimes she sings rather girlishly lascivious, in other tracks she sings rather casual and cool. Also own experiences flow into the songs and provocations are not missing. It just never gets boring. Simply fantastic
Lana Del Rey, of course, still has that certain sadness that made her famous, but her new single "West Coast", for example, is not another dark operetta, but rather a simple and hypnotic evocation of the West Coast lifestyle
Rick Nowels - among other things responsible for "Summertime Sadness" - remains faithful, graceful and gracious in his production Lana Del Ray's noir-pop style. Dan Auerbach on the other hand, producer of the Black Keys, turns this template into a heart-pounding psych-rock production, which is characterized by surprising changes in tempo. The magic in the songs, however, comes solely from the wonderful Lana Del Rey herself, with her unique vocal performance and lyrics like "He's crazy and Cubano como yo my love" she simply enchants you.
