Lana Del Ray feels "discouraged" to make a second album after songs meant for it leaked.
The 'Young and Beautiful' singer had been working on the follow up to her 2011 debut, 'Born to Die', until a large amount of new material was hacked from her computer and leaked.
Lana claims her life has been "completely invaded" since unheard tracks such as 'Black Beauty' surfaced online earlier this month.
She told Radio.com: "I was [working on new material] until my record got leaked last week, because my life is like completely invaded. But yeah, I'm writing songs that I really like right now. I do feel discouraged. I don't really know what to put on the record. But I guess I could just put the [leaked songs] on and see what happens."
The 27-year-old is in no rush to finish despite a two-year-gap since her last album as she is still searching for inspiration.
Lana continued: "Each time I write... I'll never write a song if I don't think it's going to be perfect for the record. That's the way I do it, which means I don't write all the time. My muse is really fleeting. Sometimes it's six months. I don't really push it. 'Because you have to do things to write about. You have to go get into to trouble to write about it.
"It's too bad because it's been such a long time since the last record. I really feel like I need six months to live again, time to be normal or abnormal. I don't have anyone writing anything for me. It's such an internal well and if it's not full, it's just not full."
