LANA DEL REY
Lust for Life (Polydor)
It’s hard to believe it now, but some used to sneer at Del Rey and question her authenticity. Well, this American is the real deal in pop terms and her new album is her best yet. There’s still that trademark widescreen sound and no shortage of radio-baiting tunes. Best of the lot are a pair of duets — ‘Beautiful People Beautiful Problems’ with Stevie Nicks, and ‘Tomorrow Never Came’ featuring Sean Lennon.
