Double vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release, the fifth studio album and fourth major-label record by singer Lana Del Rey. Features the single “Lust For Life” with the Weekend. Lana music has been noted for it’s cinematic style, it’s preoccupation with themes of tragic romance and melancholia, and it’s references to pop culture, particularly 1950s and 1960s Americana. Lust for Life features recurring trap rhythms, classic rock references, “sepia-toned” orchestral backings, and Del Rey singing with a “hip-hop affectation”. The Daily Telegraph stated that the album “let’s a bit of light into the darkness of Del Rey’s moody past works,” noting that “there’s a sense of heightened drama in punchy Phil Spector style sixties back beats and the way the heavy timpani criss-crosses with echoing digital trap beats, all swathed in a gauzy haze of Shangri Las style girl group harmonies.”
