Lana Del Rey has spoken to NME about the “music business going country”, what to expect from her new album ‘Lasso’, and feeling “playful” rather than “vindicated” after proving naysayers wrong.

Watch our interview above.Speaking to NME in the winners’ room of the Ivor Novellos yesterday (Thursday May 23) after picking up the Special International Award, the ‘Video Games’ icon was in a jubilant mood as she reflected on her career.“Because I met my managers 15 years ago, they spoke about this award since the minute I met them,” Del Rey told NME. “To them, it was just the crown jewel.

When they heard that I had won one, it was kind of a full circle moment. Especially because I won one 12 years ago to the day – so it’s cool to still be here!”During her acceptance speech earlier, Del Rey looked back on how naysayers at the start of her career would look down on her songs as “naval-gazing about just about my experience with challenging relationships”.

However, much has changed she since. “Now, what we’ve seen is that those songs were not written about a small microcosm of people and women; we’re seeing an acute amount of things written about difficult relationships,” her speech continued. “Even when COVID began, the second epidemic in the United States was interpersonal relationship violence –it increased by 300 per cent.“I think it’s amazing that female singer-songwriters have the freedom to write about absolutely whatever they want.
