Lana Del Rey says new album will be "more socially aware"

Lana Del Rey has opened up about her highly anticipated new studio album and revealed that the current political landscape has influenced it. 

Chatting to BBC Radio 2's Jo Wiley this week she discussed her recent quote about her forthcoming new album, in which she said, "This one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed".

The songstress explained: "I guess I started out thinking that the record would have some kind of fifties/sixties feeling [...] but as things kept getting more heated politically I found, like, lyrically everything was just directed towards that. Because of that the sound got really updated and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have. I guess it's a little more socially aware - it has kind of a global feeling."

She then confessed that she was in the studio with well-known artist, Miles Kane: "I'm actually doing something different from my record - I'm kind of just working on something else for fun. Sometimes I just come down here and play... it is with another artist, yeah. He's over in the other room actually... Miles, do you want to say hi to Jo?"

When asked what they were doing in the studio together, Miles Kane said: "We're just having a coffee."

The 'Born To Die' sensation then added that they are collaborating creatively, but it isn't for Miles' The Last Shadow Puppets' project: "We've been writing some stuff, which has been going well. No, it's for something else we've been doing."
