All of Lana’s 60s and 70s rock references on “Lust for Life”
If you’re a Lana Del Rey fan, or even just vaguely familiar with LDR as a concept, then you know Lana loves her vintage references.
So obviously her new album “Lust for Life” was full of them. And while most of the references were pretty obvious, one of them was a definite deep cut.
