And just like that, the first official glimpse into Lana’s “Honeymoon” era.
Lana Del Rey dropped her hauntingly authentic slow song for “Honeymoon.”
After teasing fans with lyrics from the lead single off her upcoming record, Del Rey swooped in on Tuesday (July 14) to premiere the album title track. The dreamy ditty shows off Del Rey’s powerful vocal strengths, belting out breathy notes as she sings about a honeymoon she might never enjoy.
“We both know the history of violence that surrounds you,
But I’m not scared, there’s nothing to lose now that I’ve found you.
We could cruise to the news
Pico Poulevard in your used little bullet car if we choose,
Mr Born to Lose.
“It’s very different from the last one and similar to the first two, Born to Die and Paradise,” Del Rey said back in January of “Honeymoon.” “I finished my last one [Ultraviolence] in March and released it in June and I had a follow-up idea. It’s growing into something I really like. I’m kind of enjoying sinking into this more noirish feel for this one. It’s been good.”
The intro is a bizarre candid short of Lana laying down gazing into la la land before coming to. Shortly after, the lyrics pop on the screen and the ballad ensues. We anticipate her latest single will crawl up our brains before eventually loving it. It’s typical Lana, which we appreciate, but her songs require a certain mood before embracing. Listen here:
