Swift adds more Lana Del Rey to Midnights
Despite being a feature on the original ‘Midnights’ release of ‘Snow on the Beach’ Swift took the chance to add more of Lana’s vocals after fans asked the singer countless times for a real duet from the friends.
“In addition to Karma Ft Ice Spice... You asked for it, we listened: Lana and I went back into the studio specifically to record more Lana on Snow on the Beach. Love u @honeymoon,” Swift wrote on Instagram.
“But wait there’s more... for those of you going to the East Rutherford shows - we will have a new special edition CD available ONLY on site starting at 12:30pm ET on Friday! This CD will have a never before heard Midnights vault track called “You’re Losing Me”!”
Lana reveals she didn’t know she was a feature on Midnights
When ‘Midnights’ was originally released back in October 2022, fans of both Del Rey and Swift were ecstatic to hear the duo’s collaboration, but to their surprise, Del Rey’s vocals were barely audible in the track.
Fans weren’t the only ones shocked, though, Del Rey revealed in an interview with Billboard back in February that she didn’t know she was “the only feature”.
“I had no idea I was the only feature [on that song],” Del Rey said. “Had I known, I would have sung the entire second verse like she wanted.”
“My job as a feature on a big artist’s album is to make sure I help add to the production of the song, so I was more focused on the production. She was very adamant that she wanted me to be on the album, and I really liked that song.”
