Lana Del Rey: 'Working on 'Ultraviolence' made me feel interesting'
'Born To Die' songstress Lana Del Rey has revealed that teaming up with Dan Auerbach, of the Black Keys fame, was great because it boosted her confidence as a recording artist at a time where it was flagging.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe recently about working with Auerbach, the beauty admitted that she was lacking in confidence before they teamed up and so was really happy to see herself come back to life throughout the project because it made her feel 'interesting':
"At the point I met Dan I didn't feel that confident. It sounds strange but him being interested in me made me feel interesting. He was a guy and he just kind of treated me like this New Yorker girl who wanted to make a record and was like, ‘Hey, let’s just see what happens.’ But he was in love with the songs."
Del Rey went onto add that, for her, confidence comes from happiness: "Obviously, it’s impossible to write a record if you don’t feel really sensual about it and confident. And I think for me, what makes me confident changes every day… but generally I would say confidence for me just comes from being really happy and that could be anything down to my environment or being lucky enough to have my muse with me, [or hearing] a really amazing melody for the first time."
