Review: A&W by Lana Del Rey

March 7, 2023

Whether you like the music of Lana Del Rey or not, you’ve got to respect the work rate. She’s constantly out material, and the latest is a single called A&W, or ‘American Whore.’ It’s very much a work of two parts, both good.

The first half is classic Lana. A tale of broken lives and the real American dream half whispered by Lana over a down beat, it’s got the myth making, the don’t shit a shit vulnerability and the sense she can’t really sing we’ve come to expect.

Then… the song morphs into a sort of ambient electro chant, which is simultaneously a perfect fit and the last thing we expected. Thanks to this sweet and sour, this salt and caramel, A&W becomes one of Lana’s best ever and something you can stick on repeat.

Great stuff.
