Lana Del Rey's Next Album Has a Title & It's Very Lana Del Rey-Ish
Though Lana Del Rey technically just released her third studio album, Ultraviolence , in June 2014, diehard fans are already itching for new releases from the gloomy songstress — and she's definitely delivering. After releasing two new songs for the fairly well-acclaimed Tim Burton film Big Eyes — one track titled "Big Eyes," another titled "I Can Fly," — the singer is reportedly already working on a new album, and she's so far into the process that it even has a name already. In a new interview with Billboard, Lana Del Rey revealed the titled of her next studio album will be Honeymoon.
"...the production is perfect; I'm looking for a few more songs to tie everything together," Del Rey said of the album in the interview. In addition, she also gave a few tidbits of info about what the album will actually sound like:
It's very different from the last one and similar to the first two, Born to Die and Paradise. I finished my last one [Ultraviolence] in March and released it in June and I had a follow-up idea. It's growing into something I really like. I'm kind of enjoying sinking into this more noirish feel for this one. It's been good. [...] I'm doing a cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." After doing a cover of [Jessie Mae Robinson's] "The Other Woman," I like summarizing the record with a jazz song. I'm having fun with my interpretation.
While the name Honeymoon does sound very Lana Del Rey in my opinion, it's definitely intriguing to see Del Rey saying that it'll be different from her last album. Though I enjoyed Ultraviolence, Born to Die is, after all, what made her as famous as she is, so a return to that era of her work isn't a bad thing at all — and keeping the title of the album consistent with the generally dark, doomed romantic feel of her music is definitely a good decision.
There's no word yet on when Honeymoon will actually be released, I think it's safe to say that we're all on the edge of our seats already with this one.
