Lana Del Rey is back with a brand new song, “Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd,” which doubles as the title for her newly-announced ninth studio album. After fans had speculated the star was ushering in a new era from clues on her website and public teasers, the theories paid off. In typical Lana fashion, the track is a dreamy ode to the West Coast, with references to The Eagles’ “Hotel California.”
“When’s it gonna be my turn?” Del Rey repeats the somber sentiment. “Don’t forget me.”
