Lana Del Rey’s Next Record Is Called <i>Honeymoon</i>, And It’s Almost Done

7 January 2015
After staging a macabre wedding in her “Ultraviolence” video, Lana Del Rey is ready for the honeymoon. Literally. Because that’s the name of her upcoming album.

Del Rey teased Honeymoon in an interview with Billboard, revealing that she’s already nine songs — and a cover — deep into the record.

The cover in question is “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” made popular by Nina Simone. Ultraviolence also featured a cover: Jessie Mae Robinson’s “The Other Woman.”

“It’s very different from the last one and similar to the first two, Born to Die and Paradise,” the singer said of the new LP, its release date as yet unannounced. “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.”

Del Rey has been far from idle since her last record dropped — in case you’re not impressed that she’s almost done with the next one. Her song “Big Eyes” for Tim Burton’s movie by the same name is up for a Golden Globe, and she contributed another song, “I Can Fly,” to the film as well.
