Lana Del Rey

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Like any other larger-than-life pop star, Lana Del Rey is ultimately a persona that has been crafted over the course of several albums—and it's a character that only continues to become more compelling. On Norman Fucking Rockell!, Del Rey oversees a collection of profane, insightful, wordplay-ridden ballads that act as sepia-tinged snapshots of life and love in 2019. Did we mention that she also turns in a breezy cover of Sublime's reggae-fusion hit "Doin' Time" for good measure? She's never as flashy as Gaga, or as woke as Beyoncé but Del Rey's tragically romantic vision of the modern world is as intoxicating—and timely—as its ever been.
