Speaking about the song in a recent interview with Courtney Love for Dazed, Del Rey said, “Maybe that’s kind of weird to have a feature on the title track, but I really love that song and we had said for a while that we were gonna do something; I did stuff on his last two records.”
On Instagram, The Weeknd said of the collaboration, “Thank you for letting me be a part of this. Also an honor to be the first feature on your discography!”
‘Lust For Life’ comes after previous collaborations with The Weeknd on songs like ‘Prisoner’ (From Behind The Madness), ‘Party Monster’ and ‘Stargirl Interlude’ (from Starboy).
Del Rey is yet to announce a release date for Lust For Life, but she’s previously shared its lead single ‘Love’.
