After much teasing and anticipation, Lana Del Rey has finally released her new track with The Weeknd!
Titled “Lust For Life”, the dreamy number is the title track of her upcoming 5th album of the same name. This comes 2 months after the release of “Love” (originally titled “Young and In Love”).
In an interview with Courtney Love of Dazed Magazine, the 31-year-old singer revealed that “Lust for Life” was the first song she wrote for her upcoming album. She also added that it was reworked after consulting Swedish songwriter-producer Max Martin.
The 60s-inspired track is hauntingly beautiful and it features layered synths and keyboards. “Cause we’re the masters of our own fate/ We’re the captains of our own souls/ There’s no way for us to come away/ Cause boy we’re gold, boy we’re gold/ And I was like…” sings Lana.
In the music video, the songstress and the “Starboy” singer can be seen sitting on the “H” of the famed “Hollywood” sign. Everything is in black-and-white except for Lana’s bright pink ensemble.
This is not the first time the 2 stars had worked together. They sang together on the 2015 song “Prisoner” and Lana was also featured on The Weeknd’s “Stargirl Interlude”.
