Lana Del Rey Reveals New Album Release Date

Lana Del Rey’s new album comes in fast after the success of last year’s Ultraviolence.

America’s melancholy muse Lana Del Rey announced at a recent show in Washington that her fourth studio album, Honeymoon, will drop this September. A departure from last year’s Ultraviolence, she told Billboard in a recent interview that the new album will bear more resemblance to the noirish feels of Born to Die and Paradise.

It was also revealed on Instagram that Lana Del Rey already shot two music videos for Honeymoon, one of them being for the “future-retro” titular track.

The exciting news comes on the heels of the success of Del Rey’s Golden Globe-nominated song “Big Eyes” and the Endless Summer Tour, a few shows of which were co-headlined by Courtney Love in a pairing that surely made Kim Gordon’s head explode.

We’re excited to hear Lana Del Rey’s dulcet tones again on some new work, as well as her interpretation of Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, made famous by the one and only Nina Simone.

“After doing a cover of [the Jessie Mae Robinson track] ‘The Other Woman’, I like summarizing the record with a jazz song,” she told Billboard. “I’m having fun with my interpretation.”

We don’t want to rush the summer, but September can’t come soon enough.
