Lana Del Rey visited our shores this week, and spent a rainy morning signing copies of her new album, Lust for Life. Of course I’d already heard it, but I couldn’t resist an autographed CD. You may notice a crack on the case – I’d like to think Lana stamped on it after many tedious hours of signing her name, but it probably just got bashed in the post.

Are you enjoying Lust for Life as much as I am? A full review is in the works, naturally. So far, my favourites among the sixteen tracks are ’13 Beaches’, ‘Cherry’, ‘White Mustang’, ‘When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing’, ‘Heroin’, ‘Get Free’ – and, of course, ‘Love’.
