She is most definitely young and beautiful.

It’s been a big year for “West Coast” singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey, and it’s only getting bigger. Lana sang her way to the top of the charts with her new Ultraviolence album, and she’s been covering magazines everywhere, her latest being Canada’s FASHION magazine.

Captured on location at Toronto’s famous Casa Loma property, Lana Del Rey was surrounded by the beauty of the Gothic Revival-designed estate as she caught up with FASHION‘s feature editor, Elio Iannacci.

Check out some excerpts from her interview below.

On the collaboration process for Ultraviolence

“Meeting [producer/Black Keys frontman] Dan Auerbach changed everything. He really brought fun back into my life. We had a natural chemistry between us that was kind of palpable and he was spontaneous. We’d go into the studio with the band and do one cut of Ultraviolence—raw and live with all seven players in the same room with an old bedroom microphone—and leave it as it was. It was thrilling.”

On how her relationship with Barrie-James O’Neill inspired Ultraviolence‘s lyrics: 

“I’m a dark character and he very is an even darker character than I am. Trying to get some consistency and some normality within the dynamic of that relationship has been impossible. Songs like “Shades of Cool” came out all that.”

On what makes her feel good: 

“Lately, I’ve sought comfort in one-on-one interactions with people backstage after the shows—spending hours with fans afterwards and drawing energy from that well. People liking what I’m doing on stage is a big ‘fuck you’ to whoever doubted me in the first place.”
