Just last week Lana Del Rey shared a new track "Coachella —Woodstock In My Mind", her tribute to the mixed emotions of attending the music and culture festival as a party-goer as tensions between the USA and North Korea were increasing. Now the "Video Games" singer has returned with a the title track from her new album, Lust for Life.
On the song the singer reunites with collaborator The Weeknd for an anthem-like track and video. This is the singers third shared project and follows "Stargirl Interlude" and "Prisoner".
This new video follows some classic Del Rey themes —nostalgia and an American Bandstand inspired set, before joining The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) on top of the Hollywood sign, a location that Del Rey had previously used as her home in an album teaser.
Three other tracks from Lust For Life have previously been shared. "Cherry", "Love" and the previously mentioned "Coachella —Woodstock In My Mind". The first of these songs was debuted at the KROQ Weenie Roast Y Fiesta this past weekend, when the singer performed before welcoming fans.
Lust For Life promises another collaboration from the singer. This time Fleetwood Mac's legendary vocalist Stevie Nicks will join Del Rey to sing a track called "Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems".
Del Rey, speaking with KROQ, about the collaboration said "She's everything you hope she's gonna be. She's so contemporary, and she knows all the new music that's out weekly. She loved the track and she added so much to it."
With new videos sharing signature retro styles and modern twists, a new set of tunes and a bunch of live sets booked it seems like summer —the preferred season of Del Rey fans —is set up to be as smouldering as ever.
