Lust for Life is the fifth studio album and fourth major-label studio album
by Lana Del Rey. The album features guest appearances from The Weeknd, A$AP
Rocky, Stevie Nicks, Sean Lennon, and Playboi Carti.
Lana Del Rey first discussed the follow-up album to Honeymoon during an
interview with NME magazine in December 2015. When asked where she would like to
go with it and when it would be released, she replied by saying, "I do have
early thoughts about what I'd like to do with it. My label, Interscope, is
pretty flexible and open to my records coming out at any time, so I don't have
that pressure. I'm just happy to be able to keep on making music I can stand
behind. That's enough for me." In February 2016, during Clive Davis's Pre-Grammy
Gala, Del Rey told Billboard that her upcoming record would be a different
direction from Honeymoon, while retaining the same aesthetic.
Featuring recurring trap rhythms, classic rock references, "sepia-toned"
orchestral backings, and Del Rey singing with a "hip-hop affectation", The Daily
Telegraph stated that Lust For Life "lets 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."
The Guardian described the album's sound as "sleek contemporary-sounding
soundscapes," and noted "Summer Bummer"'s "eerie production and futuristic
melancholy sounding closer to a track from Frank Ocean's Blonde than her usual
50s and 60s enthralled shtick."
The A.V. Club praised its modern simplicity, noting that "its beats are subtle
hip-hop twitches or electro-pop swells, with percussion redolent of faraway
fireworks booms or mellifluous melodic washes."
"'Part of the past, but now you're the future,' Lana Del Rey sings on Lust
for Life's opening track, 'Love,' as the bass hollows out a cavernous space that
connects Phil Spector to Atlanta trap. Del Rey's fifth album drifts along on a
sunset cloud so familiar and comforting, it's easy to miss how focused and
quietly audacious this music is. She shuffles mythic figures like she's
scrolling contacts in her phone. The lyrics invoke Iggy Pop, Patsy Cline, Brian
Wilson and Led Zeppelin; the guests include the Weeknd, Stevie Nicks, A$AP Rocky
and Sean Ono Lennon. Whatever she needs to invoke the weightlessness of life in
our new not-normal, she takes. 'Is it the end of an era? Is it the end of
America?' she intones in 'When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing.' 'No, it's
only the beginning.' As true, and as terrifying, a thought as any song this year
produced." - Rolling Stone, 50 Best Albums of 2017
