Lana Del Rey, Kanye West & UMG chairman/CEO Lucian Grange, who tops the list have featured on the cover of Billboard’s Power 100 issue.
“Lucian has such an extensive knowledge of music history, yet his eye is always on the future. As artists, we’re lucky he’s at the helm,” says Lana Del Rey.
Lana Del Rey also revealed to Billboard in early January that her new album will be titled Honeymoon and nine songs have already been written.
Lana Del Rey also said that she has covered Nina Simone’s ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ for the album explaining “I like summarising the record with a jazz song. I’m having fun with my interpretation.”
“It’s very different from the last one and similar to the first two, Born to Die and Paradise” she told Billboard. “It’s growing into something I really like. I’m kind of enjoying sinking into this more noirish feel for this one. It’s been good.”
