Lana Del Rey may release a 25-song album of leaks & faves

She’s already thinking about a major follow-up to Lust for Life

It’s only been a week since the release of the wondrous Lust for Life, but Lana Del Rey’s thinking ahead to swerving the illegal downloading “fuckers” she called out on Twitter. Get 'em Lana.

Speaking at an intimate album showcase in LA’s Amoeba Records, the singer told the crowd that her next album could be a collection of unreleased tracks.

“I was thinking about releasing a record of 25 of my favourite leaked songs…” she told a cheering audience, along with some “little folk singles”. Lust for Life is pretty much on constant rotation for the rest of summer, so we’ll happily welcome a bumper pack of tunes from the singer.

“I have an aversion to things that sound glossy all over. Some people say, ‘It’s not radio-ready if it isn’t super-shiny from top to bottom,’’’ Del Rey told Courtney Love in a recent Dazed interview, unpacking her thoughts on the production of her back catalogue.

She continued, discussing her creative journey: “In the last few years, I feel like I’ve grown up. Maybe I’ve just had time to process everything. Singing songs I wrote ten years ago... It does feel different. It’s weird listening back to my stuff.”
