NFR was mainly produced and co-written with Jack Antonoff and includes 'Venice Bitch,' 'Mariners Apartment Complex,' 'hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but I have it,' and a cover of Sublime's 'Doin' Time'.
Lana describes the album as "in the vein of a Laurel Canyon sound, and it's kind of transformed a little bit because there's some surf elements to some of the songs - it's not really surfy like Dick Dale but a lot of electric guitar, a little Red Hot Chili Peppers influence in there."
"Over five albums, Del Rey's sound has swung between glacial, expansive rock and cabaret and glossy trip-hop. Rockwell plunges deeper into the first mode, with the producer Jack Antonoff forgoing the '80s synth shimmer he's known for. Del Rey's lyrics-always a serial-killer-note collage of quotations-reference Baby Boomer rock and So Cal hip-hop. But musically, Rockwell more so channels patient, spaced-out troubadours across generations-Simon and Garfunkel, Mazzy Star, Built to Spill-with a hint of anthemic pop. Against smearing guitar, piano, and horns, Del Rey sings with recital-ready stateliness, even though her melodies are quavering and fragile." - The Atlantic
