Lana Del Rey Shares Two New Songs Looking For America and Season Of The Witch

Tuesday, 06 August 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Lana Del Rey has released two new songs.

Neither will not appear on the California vocalist and songwriter’s upcoming album, ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’, which is due for release on August 30. Instead, Looking For America is a standalone track written in response to the recent shootings in the US.

Shared on Instagram, Del Rey commented: 

“Now I know I’m not a politician and I’m not trying to be so excuse me for having an opinion - but in light of all of the mass shootings and the back to back shootings in the last couple of days which really affected me on a cellular level I just wanted to post this video that our engineer Laura took 20 minutes ago. I hope you like it. I’m singing love to the choruses I recorded this morning. I’m going to call it Looking for America.”

Listen below for a live version of the emotional track, with Del Rey’s delicate and heartfelt vocals recorded in the studio with Jack Antonoff.

The second is a spooky, minimalist cover of 1966's Season of the Witch by Donovan, taken from the soundtrack for Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, an upcoming film produced by Guillermo Del Toro.

Thu 05 Sep 2019
When Lana Del Rey’s Video Games attained viral status in 2011, it felt entirely plausible that her success would be a flash in the pan. Many critics (often male) derided her as a contrived, inauthentic pop star whose cinematic melancholia could not translate to long term appeal. Eight years and four albums later, they’ve been proven wrong about her longevity, and yet Del Rey’s multi-textured inauthenticity has flourished, and become a kind of defining brand. Sometimes you can be wrong and right at the same time.
