In her music, Lana Del Rey frequently references other celebrities, but it’s rare that a celebrity responds to one of her songs directly.
Bruce Springsteen referred to a Del Rey song on his radio show, “From His Home To Yours,” which references him by name – and also to Del Rey’s work as a whole. Look at the song here – and what Springsteen had to say.
How Bruce Springsteen paid homage to an album by Lana Del Rey.
Del Rey is fascinated with people who are famous. She only mentions Walt Whitman, Jesus Christ, Marilyn Monroe, the Virgin Mary and Harvey Weinstein on her EP Paradise alone. Del Rey celebrates the singing talents of two of the greatest stars of American show business, Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen, in one of the album’s songs, “American,”
The shout-out may have been missed by Springsteen.
In 2012, Del Rey released “American” and for years had not publicly commented on the single. NME says, however, that, by performing it on his radio show, he wanted to pay tribute to the album. He referred to the mention of it in the lyrics. He said, “She, uh, mentions a guy from New Jersey in it,” “I’m not sure who.” didn’t land on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but it clearly meant something to The Boss. “American”

What Bruce Springsteen thinks about her song ‘Norman F*cking Rockwell’ and Lana Del Rey
Springsteen went on to speak about the life and career of Del Rey.
He said, “She’s from New York and grew up in Lake Placid, according to NME. Lake Placid, a fabulous little American town where over the years I’ve spent many lovely summer evenings with my children and family.”
And as we talk, Lana is just one of the best songwriters in the country. She just builds her own world and welcomes you into it. So, lovely Lana Del Rey, a huge favorite of mine.
Springsteen spoke about Del Rey’s album “Norman F*cking Rockwell” during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “I listen to Lana Del Rey’s Norman F*cking Rockwell album,” he said. “I listen to Lana Del Rey’s Norman F*cking Rockwell album.” “I just love her lyrics. It’s cinematic. Her album is great.”

Then wouldn’t “Born to Die” be the same without The Boss
There’s another crucial link between Del Rey and Springsteen beyond that. Del Rey cited Springsteen in an interview with The Telegraph as an influence on her album Born to Die – the album she released to a far wider audience than her previous work.
The song ‘Summertime Sorrow,’ which is perhaps the most popular song by Del Rey to date, is featured in Born to Die. Springsteen admired Del Rey – but without Springsteen’s influence, Del Rey’s career would not be the same.
