Lana Del Rey’s Collab With Stevie Nicks Is “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems”
Lana Del Rey shed some light on her collaboration with Stevie Nicks in an interview with KROQ on Saturday (May 20). For starters, she revealed the title. “The track is called ‘Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.’ I kind of thought I had finished the record a couple of times and then, one of those times, I really just felt like I wanted a woman on the record.” The dream-pop goddess turned to producer Rick Nowels for advice. “We both kind of could only come up with Stevie. Funny enough, he went to high school with her and he wrote his first hit with her.”
“I’m so bad, I don’t remember what song that was,” Lana continues. (Could it be 1985’s “I Can’t Wait”?) “So he know her really well and he called her and they actually started the track in New York at Electric Lady and then she flew back, I think, the following week and finished it at our studio.” What was the experience like? “She was amazing. She was… I don’t know, she’s just kind of everything you hope she’s going to be. She’s so contemporary and she knows all the new music that’s out weekly and she loved the track and she added so much to it.” Listen to the full interview below.
