Lana del Rey has “three CDs’ worth of songs written”, says Polydor man

Though certain critics have concluded there’s barely an album’s worth of album-worthy material on Lana Del Ray’s debut LP ‘Born To Die’, it appears the singer has a high-quality cache of surplus tracks in waiting, should a deluxe edition of the record ever be released. And indeed, such a thing seems quite likely to materialise, given hints dropped by Del Rey’s label boss, Ferdy Unger-Hamilton of Universal subsidiary Polydor.
Describing Del Rey as “a really talented writer and a remarkable lyricist”, Hamilton has told MTV: “She had three CDs’ worth of songs written, with loads of brilliant tracks. Enough for us to do the album and a deluxe edition and still have stuff left for later records”.
Del Rey, however, has previously said she’s not keen on making a sequel to ‘Born To Die’, despite the LP becoming the fastest selling album of the year upon its release earlier this month. “I don’t think I’ll write another record. What would I say?” she asks of Vogue. “I feel like everything I wanted to say, I’ve said already”.
