Synopsis: After releasing three critically acclaimed albums from Lana Del Rey, the Grammy Award-winning producer hits Rue Boyer Studios to revisit her latest groundbreaking single, “A&W.” This episode was filmed at Rue Boyer Studios, where the album was mixed. Jack explores the performance and recording techniques that brought the track to life.
The series of videos begins with a demonstration of the instruments on which the song’s tender atmosphere is based. He looks at how each element was performed and recorded, emphasizing the value of “playing compression” to create more emotional performances.
Jack develops these ideas by exploring the use of dynamics and tuning to create an arrangement that stands out from the rest. By combining these approaches with modern technology, he and engineer Laura were able to create a world around Lana’s vocals that evokes both vintage and modern aesthetics.
This balance is fully restored after Jack introduces the song “Jimmy” into the arrangement. Originally intended to be a completely different song, these two worlds collide, creating one of the most exciting musical medleys of the year. Jack shares how the team created this musical juxtaposition and shows how bold ideas often reap the biggest rewards.
