Lust for Life is the fifth studio album and fourth major-label record by American singer Lana Del Rey, released on July 21, 2017.[2] The lead single, titled "Love", was released worldwide on February 18, 2017, and the album title was announced on March 29, 2017, through a trailer on Del Rey's official Vevo channel on YouTube.[3] The title track, which features Canadian singer The Weeknd, was released on April 19 as the second single.[4] The album also features guest appearances from ASAP Rocky, Stevie Nicks, Sean Lennon, and Playboi Carti.[5]

The album was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.[6] It is Del Rey's second nomination in this category.[7]

Background and release[edit]

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."[8] 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.[9]

On February 18, 2017, the album's lead single, "Love" was released. On April 18, in an interview with Courtney Love for Dazed, Del Rey confirmed a collaboration on the album with The Weeknd called "Lust for Life", and a collaboration with Sean Lennon called "Tomorrow Never Came".[10] She claimed to have worked with Max Martin for the title track, and was inspired by The Shangri-Las for the record's sound. A collaboration with Stevie Nicks entitled "Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems" was also confirmed to be featured on the album.[11][12] The second single, "Lust for Life", was released on April 19. The title of the album was announced on March 29, 2017, when Del Rey released a trailer for the album,[13] and the album's cover art was released by Del Rey on social media on April 11, 2017.[14] The album was released on July 21, 2017.[2]

Composition[edit]

Lust for Life features recurring trap rhythms, classic rock references, "sepia-toned" orchestral backings, and Del Rey singing with a "hip-hop affectation".[15] The Daily Telegraph stated that the album "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."[16] 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."[17] 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."[18]

Promotion[edit]

Singles[edit]

In January 2017, the lead single from the record, "Love", was registered online on Harry Fox Agency under the alternate title, "Young in Love".[19] Fans began the speculate that the song would be featured on Del Rey's upcoming record, and on February 17, 2017, promotional posters for the "Love" music video directed by Rich Lee were put on display across Los Angeles.[20] Later that day, the song leaked online, forcing Del Rey to officially release the song earlier than she had expected. The song was officially released worldwide on February 18, and the music video on February 20.[21][22] "Love" debuted at number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on Hot Rock Songs.[23][24] On April 19, BBC Radio 1 premiered Del Rey's new song, "Lust for Life" featuring singer The Weeknd.[25] The official audio was released to the iTunes Store and streaming services a few hours later as the second single from the album.[26] "Summer Bummer" featuring ASAP Rocky and Playboi Carti was released to UK radio as the third single from the album on July 28, 2017.[27] "Groupie Love" featuring ASAP Rocky was released to Italian radio as the fourth single from the album on July 28, 2017.[1]

Though not released as a single, White Mustang was accompanied by a music video, published on September 17, 2017. The video illustrates a futuristic Los Angeles in an aesthetic reminiscence of High by the Beach.[28]

Promotional singles[edit]

On May 15, Del Rey released "Coachella – Woodstock in My Mind" as the album's first promotional single.[29] On July 12, she premiered the songs "Summer Bummer", featuring ASAP Rocky and Playboi Carti, and "Groupie Love", featuring ASAP Rocky, as the second and third promotional singles with the album's pre-order.[30]

Tour[edit]

On July 24, 2017, Del Rey began a small promotional tour at the Brixton Academy in London in promotion of Lust for Life.[31] Other stops on the promotional tour include San Diego, Anaheim,[32] Glasgow, Liverpool,[33] San Francisco,[34] Santa Barbara[35] and New York City.[36] Aside from these select side shows, Del Rey embarked on an official world tour entitled the LA to the Moon Tour to further promote the album, as her first official headlining concert tour since The Endless Summer Tour in 2015.[37] The tour began on January 5, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and it further includes shows in North America, South America, Australia and Europe.

Lust for Life received positive reviews.[48] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 77, based on 26 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[39] This effectively makes Lust for Life Del Rey's second best reviewed album to date, after Honeymoon.[49]

Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph said the album is a "welcome throwback to the hip hop swagger that pushed through her fantastic 2012 debut Born To Die".[42] Jon Pareles of The New York Times wrote a favorable review, saying the album "in rare moments, hints at a wink behind Ms. Del Rey's somber lullabies."[50] In a very positive review from GQ Magazine, Kevin Long wrote that "Like Lorde's Melodrama, Lust for Life is an accomplished piece of art, an antidote to the banal tunes permeating the charts and one of the best albums released this year so far."[51]

Billboard named Lust for Life their album of the week, writing "In a 2017 pop game riddled with thirst, trend-hops and burn-outs, Lana Del Rey has earned a remarkable, singular consistency."[52] Writing for The Independent, Roison O'Connor wrote that "Lust For Life is more of an elaboration on her favourite subjects rather than a repetition, in fact, it's her most expansive album to date," concluding that "Del Rey is far more self-aware than she has been on her previous albums."[53] El Hunt of DIY wrote that Lust for Life is "a record that is prepared to be truly vulnerable, and is all the more impactful for it."[54]
