Lana Del Rey promised that her new album, Honeymoon, would arrive in September. With less than two months to go and after much teasing, the pop singer’s finally revealed the LP’s first single in the title track.
Clocking in at a lush six minutes, the number is a sweeping ballad done in Del Rey’s signature sun-baked yet somber tone. “We both know that it’s not fashionable to love me, but you don’t go cause truly there’s nobody for you but me,” she croons, accompanied by weeping, sometimes thunderous strings. “We could cruise to the blues Wilshire Boulevard if we choose. Or whatever you want to do, we make the rules.” Check it out below via its lyric video.
While not much is known about the Ultraviolence follow-up, Del Rey previously mentioned it would contain a cover of Nina Simone’s “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” with production from pop music darling Rick Nowels.
