We are ready to go on a “honeymoon” with Lana Del Rey as the talented indie darling is back with the first official single for her upcoming full-length album.
The “Brooklyn baby” singer has been building anticipation for her album since last month, teasing bits of it through various social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. Each time she teases the song, we’d wish that she’d release the album as soon as possible!
Though the New York songstress uses her lower vocals and has produced numerous hit songs such as “Summertime Sadness” and “Born to Die”, Lana is breaking away from her signature musical style with “Honeymoon”. Following her soundtrack contributions to last year’s “Big Eyes”, she continues to put us in a cinematic mood with this slow, blue-hued soul. Compared to her earlier works, this new single hints that her new album is going to sound slightly different. On top of that, Mark Ronson previously told Q-Tip of Interview magazine that he had been recruited by Lana to work together on her 3rd album.
Titled “Honeymoon”, Lana’s new album will consist of a cover of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” (Nina Simone’s version) and 9 songs written by Lana Del Rey herself.
It’s very different from the last one and similar to the first two, “Born to Die” and “Paradise”. 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.
According to Stereogum, LDR’s new album would be out in September.
