Earlier this summer, we heard the news that Lana Del Rey was recording a new album called Honeymoon, perfectly befitting the queen of opulent gloominess. Well, far before the expected release date in September, a mysterious Instagram account with the username “Honeymoon” surfaced with a sneak peek of a video, possibly of the album’s title track.
The short snippet is rich with what makes Lana’s music work: Sensual crooning above overwrought, dramatic instrumentation. Oh, and there’s also a tiger. Along with the title track, Honeymoon is also said to feature a cover of Nina Simone’s “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” and the leaked “Music To Watch Boys To.”
Put on your finest suit and be pensive with Lana when Honeymoon drops in September.
