The cover song is called “West Coast” and was written with Rick Nowels. The production was covered by Dan Auerbach who is the lead singer of the Black Keys. Del Rey will finally be coming to the United States this June to tour her previous albums.
As Del Rey produces more and more albums, her lyrical maturity has increased. Her voice is also more enjoyable to a broader audience than her previous albums. When listening to her music, a person can reflect on other great artists to realize she is mixing new alternative pop with old classics. Her inspirations are Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, The Eagles and many more. Del Rey’s music is centered around her religion, family, and hardships.
Del Rey is very successful around the world. She earned a Grammy at the 56th annual Grammy Awards, an EMA for Best Alternative Act and many other awards.
