The Drop: Lana Del Rey

With Special Guest Jack Antonoff

Straight off the release of her new album, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey for an intimate conversation and performance. Joining her during the conversation moderated by Scott Goldman will be Jack Antonoff, who co-wrote and produced the album. 

 

Lana Del Rey’s music has been noted by critics for its stylized cinematic quality, glamour, melancholia, and its references to 1950s and 1960s Americana. Her sixth studio album “Norman F***ing Rockwell” was released this past August to high praises, with Pitchfork calling her “One of America’s greatest living songwriters.” The highly anticipated album includes previously released songs ‘Venice Bitch,’ ‘Mariners Apartment Complex,’ ‘hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have -but I have it,’ and her hit cover of Sublime’s ‘Doin’ Time’.

 

Her debut album, Born To Die was released in January 2012 and charted at number one on the official U.K. Albums Chart, peaked at number two on the U.S. charts and was the fifth best-selling album of 2012. Her extended play Paradise followed that November, garnering her first GRAMMY nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Ultraviolence (2014), her third studio album, became her first album to reach number one in the U.S. In 2015, she released her fourth studio album, Honeymoon. Both albums received positive critical response. 

 

Lana’s fifth studio album Lust For Life, was released in 2017. The album received critical acclaim and became her second album to reach No. 1 in the United States, while also reaching the top ten in almost every other country it charted in. The album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2018 GRAMMY Awards.
