Lana Del Rey Prepares For ‘Honeymoon’

Published on

Lana Del Rey has revealed the title of her next album, and that she already has nine songs ready for it. The follow-up to last year’s worldwide million-seller ‘Ultraviolence’ will be called ‘Honeymoon’ — and will include a cover of a much-covered song associated with Nina Simone, the Animals and others.

Del Rey tells Billboard of the forthcoming project: “It’s very different from the last one and similar to the first two [by which she is referring to 2012’s ‘Born To Die’ and the expanded ‘Paradise’ edition of it that followed later that year]. “I finished my last one 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 ‘The Other Woman’ [the song by R&B writer Jessie Mae Robinson that Del Rey recorded on ‘Ultraviolence’], I like summarizing the record with a jazz song. I’m having fun with my interpretation.”

She adds that for four songs for the ‘Honeymoon’ record, “the production is perfect. I’m looking for a few more songs to tie everything together.”

Meanwhile, the title song for the movie ‘Big Eyes,’ which Del Rey wrote with Daniel Heath, has a Golden Globe nomination, and is thought to have a strong bid for the Oscar nominations, which will be announced on January 15. Here’s the song:
