Lana Del Rey has said her forthcoming album was inspired by feelings of “anger.”
The singer has released her eighth studio album Blue railings in October and debuted the new track “Watercolor Eyes” on an episode of euphoria earlier this year.
In a new interview for WDel Rey opened up on the new sound and “cerebral” process of her upcoming music.
“In honeymoonthere were so many color references: ‘Sometimes I wake up in the morning to red, blue and yellow skies / It’s so crazy I could drink it like Tequila Sunrise,'” she said, referring to her fourth studio album from 2015.
“For this new music, there is none of that at all. It’s more like this: I’m angry. The songs are very talkative… It’s a very wordy album. So no room for color. It’s almost like I’m typing in my mind.”
Speaking of her recording process so far, the singer said she’s been practicing “meditative automatic singing” where she records her “unfiltered” thoughts in the Voice Notes app on her phone.
“It’s obviously not perfect. There are pauses and I stumble,” she said. “But I sent these really raw sounding files to a composer, Drew Erickson, and he puts an orchestra under the words, matching each syllable to music and adding reverb to my voice.”
