“Sometimes it feels like I’ve got a war in my mind
I want to get off, but I keep ridin’ the ride
I never really noticed that I had to decide
To play someone’s game or live my own life
And now I do
I wanna move
Out of the black (out of the black)
Into the blue (into the blue)”

Lana Del Rey, “Get Free”

She may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but Lana Del Rey is renowned for being a unique artist in both look and sound. I adore her retro-sounding voice and the lure and sensuous image that she always showcases. She is that kind of artist that speaks to us through her music, and the lyrics in her last album “Lust for Life” are significantly powerful as she sings of love, control and politics. My favourite tracks are “Change”; “Get Free”; “In my feelings”; “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems”; “Lust for Life” and “13 Beaches”. But I must say that the entire album is incredible as you can hear her emotions coming from her recognisable singing voice.
