Lana Del Rey wants to collaborate with The National

Following the release of her sixth studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, has been cooking up some future collaborations.

Arriving as the follow-up to 2017 album Lust For Life, the new record includes the previously released singles ‘Mariners apartment complex’, ‘Venice Bitch‘ and ‘Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have–but I have it’.

Having collaborated with Jack Antonoff in the creation of the record, Del Rey admitted that the formality of writing the new material isn’t her favoured part of the creative process: “I feel very much that writing is not my thing: I’m writing’s thing,” Del Rey said in a recent interview with Billboard. “When the writing has got me, I’m on its schedule. But when it leaves me alone, I’m just at Starbucks, talking shit all day.”

Now, in a new wide-ranging interview with the Times, Del Rey has been discussing her new record, her opinion on President Donald Trump and how she plans to follow up Norman Fucking Rockwell with another new album inside 12 months.

After the Times published the interview, author Al Horner took to social media to reveal that their conversation touched briefly on future collaborations but the quotes didn’t make the cut. After giving a shout out to iconic folk musician Joan Baez, Del Rey revealed her admiration for The National and Matt Berninger’s voice.

“Well, I really like the National His voice,” Del Rey said. “I think about it… a lot. Every time Ia song is playing and I’m like, who’s that? It’s always them.”
