Three months ago, Lana Del Rey dropped a new single, “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it,” set to appear on her upcoming album, Norman Fucking Rockwell. It joins singles “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch,” released last fall. Throughout the lead-up to her forthcoming album, Lana has also shared plenty of teaser clips of new songs, most recently of “Happiness Is A Butterfly” and an unnamed track we’ll call “In Your Car”. Today, Lana unveiled yet another song preview, including its lyrics as a caption:
u don’t ever have to be stronger than u really are
when ur lying in my arms
u don’t ever have to
go faster than ur fastest pace
or faster than my fastest cars
The new Instagram clip shows Lana laying down as she listens to the melancholy tune. Slow piano chords and simple strings hovering in the background set the stage for the crooned lyrics. It’s a short clip, but the song sounds right in line with Lana’s softer, sadder compositions.
The track will most likely appear on Norman Fucking Rockwell, expected later this year. Check out the song preview below:
The new song should appear on Lana’s upcoming album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, due out later this year. She’s teased numerous songs from the record already. Besides this latest clips, Lana also teased a few other songs throughout October: “Cinnamon,” “Sylvia Plath,” and an unknown song featuring Machine Gun Kelly. More recently, she previewed “Happiness Is A Butterfly” and an unnamed track some fans know as “In Your Car.”
Lana has released three official singles so far: “Mariners Apartment Complex,” “Venice Bitch,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it.”
She performed “How To Disappear” live, too. However, the two short country songs that Lana performed in December are not likely to appear on the album.
Lana’s last album, Lust For Life, came out in July 2017. Lana entered the studio in January 2018, working with Jack Antonoff on the project. There’s no release date for Norman Fucking Rockwell yet, but it should be out by this summer.
