Listen to two new Lana Del Rey songs

Lana Del Rey has unveiled two new songs from forthcoming album Lust For Life – and you can listen to them right here.

The tracks are titled Summer Bummer and Groupie Love.

The New Yorker dropped in on Zane Lowe’s show earlier today at the Beats 1 studio in LA to premiere the tracks.

Speaking to the DJ, she said: “I felt like I was getting into this mid-tempo groove and now I’m all the way in, out all night.”

Speaking about Groupie Love, Del Rey said: “My tracklisting changed a lot in the last three months and this middle section – White Mustang, Cherry, Summer Bummer, Groupie Love and even Coachella – I feel like this middle section has a lot of fire in it even though it’s not that fast. The beats are hard.”

Lust For Life is due for release on July 21.

The album is set to feature a collaboration with Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks called Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.

Talking about what it was like to work with Nicks, 31-year-old Del Rey said recently: “She was amazing. She’s just everything you hope she’s gonna be. She’s so contemporary, and she knows all the new music that’s out weekly. She loved the track and she added so much to it.”

Describing the new album as “more socially aware”, Del Rey said of the record: “I started out thinking that the whole record was gonna have a sort of a 50s-60s feeling, kind of some kind of Shangri-Las, early Joan Baez influences.

“But I don’t know, as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that.

“So because of that, the sound just got really updated, and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have.

“I guess it’s a little more socially aware. It’s kind of a global feeling.”
