Lana Del Rey treated fans to a surprise today by sharing the first single from her upcoming album – the titular track ‘Honeymoon.’ Like tracks from Ultraviolence, ‘Honeymoon’ is a more stripped back and haunting sound for Lana that feels authentic, despite being a departure from her debut Born to Die.
‘Honeymoon’ clocks in at nearly 6 minutes and is a taste of what’s to come from the album. As magically ethereal and eerie as ‘Honeymoon’ is, it doesn’t best Lana’s own ‘Young and Beautiful’ – but time will tell if other songs on Honeymoon live up to high expectations. Taking to her Instagram account, honeymoon, Lana shared the following about the song and the upcoming album:
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.
Listen to ‘Honeymoon’ above. Are you excited for Lana’s new music?
