It's the singer's album title-track.
The song is lifted from Del Rey’s upcoming album of the same name, her follow-up to 2015’s ‘Honeymoon’. The record (its cover art is here) has already been preceded by lead single ‘Love’ and she recently unveiled a witch-themed trailer for the album and teased that the record is “coming soon”.
‘Lust For Life’ premiered today (April 19) on Mistajam’s BBC Radio 1 show. Listen here.
Speaking to Dazed recently, Del Rey said of her Weeknd collaboration: “Maybe that’s kind of weird to have a feature on the title track, but I really love that song and we had said for a while that we were gonna do something; I did stuff on his last two records.”
Lana Del Rey had previously appeared on The Weeknd’s tracks, ‘Prisoner’ and ‘Stargirl Interlude’.
Explaining the song’s formation further, she added: “On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song. I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run.”
