Lana Del Rey says Courtney Love is a "born performer".

The 'Born To Die' hitmaker was joined by Courtney on the 'Endless Summer' tour earlier this year and Lana was impressed with Courtney's stage presence.

She told NME magazine: "Touring with Courtney was great - we have some things in common that might not be visible from the outside. I did spend some time with her, and I still see her now and then. I think the most important thing I learned was that some people just have it when it comes to performing. She's totally entrancing, a born performer."

Lana also admitted that she sometimes finds performing "overwhelming" and is unsure when her next album will be released.

She said: "Every show is different, I'm not always overwhelmed by my show, but sometimes I am. It's not dependent on the size of the crowd, it's just how I'm doing that day... Touring for six months out of the year is so different from doing anything else; it's freeing, but there's something strange about it in the way that it's such a transient experience.

"My label, Interscope, is pretty flexible and open to my records coming out at any time, so I don't have that pressure. I'm just happy to be able to keep on making music I can stand behind. That's enough for me."

Seductive, self-styled 'Hollywood sadcore' sounds from the pop siren of the moment.
