SINGLE REVIEW: Lana Del Rey – Love
BREAKING NEWS: It’s taken a while but it’s finally happened… Lana Del Rey has released a song that rivals her debut album! It’s been a long time since I’ve actually been impressed by this songstress with a string of messy albums that had giant potential but were executed poorly and a fanbase who seemed to over hype every career move she made. Basically she quickly became the most overrated pop star. Her debut album “Born To Die” is flawless and that saw every record she released after heavily scrutinised because everyone was expecting that classic Lana sound. “Ultraviolence” was an album that was ahead of it’s time and should have been released after one more “pop orientated” album because it really was a great record that got over sighted. But “Honeymoon” deserves the criticism as it was embarrassingly messy. However she has returned to the orchestral pop her debut cemented with lead single “Love” from her forthcoming fourth studio album. She has dedicated this song to her fans as it looks at youth through the experiences and feelings from their perspective. It is a very intimate and relatable track as she wrote it through the relationships and interactions she has had with them. “Look at you kids, you know you’re the coolest. The world is yours and you can’t refuse it. Seen so much you could get the blues. But that don’t mean that you should abuse it”. Her vocals have improved with a beautiful delivery that perfectly compliments this touching tribute. 2017 may just be the year that Lana Del Rey redeems herself and I’m very intrigued to hear what’s next.
