Lana Del Rey has a bone to pick on her new song "Best American Record."
Lana says her forthcoming record began with a '50s/'60s concept, but "as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that," she said. "So because of that, the sound just got really updated, and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have. I guess it’s a little more socially aware. It’s kind of a global feeling.”
Lana Del Rey’s New Song “LOVE” Is “A Good Representation” Of The Forthcoming Album
Her post-Honeymoon era unexpectedly kicked off when lead single "LOVE" hit the net ahead of schedule, which forced the pop star to launch the song and music video immediately. It didn't seem to bother her. “I made my first four albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed," Lana said.
It's been a week since she hypnotized fans with the dreamy music video for the track, but another new song reportedly featured on the LP has surfaced. It's titled "Best American Record," which fans suspect is also the name of the album, and clocks in at just over six minutes.

Lyrics were posted on Genius.com: "You were so obsessed with writing the next best American record," Lana sings over a grandeur, cinematic background. Like "Love," her vocals are just as mesmerizing. "You did it all for fame."
No word if the song is a demo, meant for the new LP or a separate project. But don't be surprised if the pop star rush-releases another tune.
