It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! LDR finally dropped her latest album July 21st, and it’s super awesome! Entitled “Lust For Life”, this 16 track gem is complete with cameos, recycled themes like “white sunshine”, pearls, curls, America, blue, paradise, and “war on my mind”. There’s bits about clothing, illicit drugs, some alcohol, and all of the common hallmarks in LDR’s discography.
I am loving “Tomorrow Never Came” which features Sean Ono Lennon, I’ve never heard him sing before and his voice is amazing, it’s exactly how I’d imagine John’s son sounding.
The songs with A$AP Rocky, I didn’t think I would enjoy and I actually do. I’m normally not the biggest rap fan, but “Summer Bummer” is pretty good, and “Groupie Love” is a cool track too!
“God Bless America – And All of the Beautiful Women In It” was a stand out track for me. That and “Love” seemed the most reminiscent of standard LDR. “Get Free” is probably the best way to end the record. I get the feeling that a conscious decision was made and there’s no looking back, as if to say I’ve evolved and there is only forward to go from here.
- Lust For Life
- 13 Beaches

- Summer Bummer
- Groupie Love
- In My Feelings
- Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind

Overall it’s a good cohesive record, with that being said I love the “Born To Die/Paradise” days. There are some stand outs for me, but it’s more than likely that I’m in a different place in my life and I’m not relating to every word she writes anymore. It’s not bad, and her voice as always is top notch. And who else would work with A$AP Rocky, Sean Ono Lennon, The Weeknd, and Stevie Nicks all on one record? I would say fans will like this record, there is just enough to keep us entertained, even if you don’t know her work, check it out you may be surprised! And on that note, it’s time to end!
All for now,
Title from: Heroin by LDR
