Lana's Witchcraft
Lana Del Rey outs herself as a witch for the sake of the political climate, while Azealia Banks calls her out.

UPDATE (3/18): Lana Del Rey closed her SXSW set with the live debut of “Love.” See the original post, then video of her performance, below.

Lana Del Rey is about to take over SXSW. On March 16, she announced that she will perform at the Apple Music space in Austin, Texas, tonight (March 17) at 8 p.m. CST. Official SXSW wristbands and artist badges are required to enter, according to The FADER. This will be Lana’s first live performance in nearly a year, and her first in 2017.

“Hi guys,” she said on Instagram. “I just wanted to let you know that we’re heading to Texas tomorrow to play a little show. We’re going to do it at the Apple Music space. So I’ll write down all the info. But I hope that we see you there.”

Lana returned to music earlier this year with “Love,” the lead single of her “more socially aware” fifth album. “I started out thinking that the whole record was gonna have a sort of a ’50s-’60s feeling, kind of some Shangri-Las, early Joan Baez influences,” she says. “But I don’t know, as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that.”
