Lana Del Rey is gearing up to release her third album Honeymoon and today we’ve been gifted our first taste of it in the form of the record’s title track.
The haunting track sees Del Rey deliver retro Hollywood grandeur, not straying too far from her original sound. “We both know the history of violence that surrounds you/But I’m not scared, there’s nothing to lose now,” she sings, reprising the same themes that featured on her second record Ultraviolence.
Ultraviolence was released last year and was produced largely by The Black Keys’ Dan Auberach.
In May during a show in Washington State, Del Rey told the audience to expect the album in September. There’s been no further official word on that but let’s hope it’s a done deal.
“There are so many other tracks on the record, 13 others to be exact- Some with a muddy trap energy and some inspired by late-night Miles Davis drives,” she revealed of the album on Instagram, along with a link to this new track.
Back in April, Mark Ronson told Interview Magazine he was hitting the studio with Del Rey, although it’s not known what has materialised from those sessions. The songstress also revealed to Billboard earlier in the year that the album could feature a cover of Nina Simone’s Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.
We’d like to point out that she hasn’t toured Australia since the release of her second album so we’re
hoping for expecting a huge Aussie tour during this latest album cycle.
Listen: Lana Del Rey – Honeymoon
Here it is, the first and title track off my record – Honeymoon. In some ways I feel it's where the record begins and ends… there are so many other tracks on the record, 13 others to be exact- Some with a muddy trap energy and some inspired by late-night Miles Davis drives… But I love this song because it encapsulates all of the things that come naturally to me. http://lanadel.re/HONEYMOON
