For those of you who would rather spend the dog daze of summer not feeling your face, just summertime sadness -- you're in luck. Two new Lana Del Rey tracks hit the Web today: one cut from her upcoming Honeymoon record, and her duet with The Weeknd, off of his impending Beauty Behind The Madness, out August 28.
"Terrence Loves You" -- the next single off of Honeymoon, due out September 18 -- is a decidedly jazz-tinged track, finding Lana characteristically singing about what seems to be a twisted relationship: "But I lost myself when I lost you/ But I still got jazz when I've got those blues/ And I lost myself when I lost you/ And I still get trashed, darling, when I hear your tunes."
As slow as and dreamy as previous singles, "Honeymoon" and "High By The Beach," "Terrence Loves You" also samples lyrics from David Bowie's iconic song, "Space Oddity": "Ground control to Major Tom/ Can you hear me all night long?/ Ground control to Major Tom." It's a sad, sweet piece of music -- perfect for listening to while crying in front of a vintage oscillating fan in your sparse Brooklyn apartment while possibly wearing something made of lace. (Not that this encapsulates my weekend plans or anything...)
Lana's Weeknd collab is dancier -- if equally gloomy. The track, "Prisoner," leaked onto the Web today (you can Google around if you like) and sounds like something off of the Weeknd's House Of Balloons mixtape. "I’m a prisoner to my addiction," Abel Tesfaye and Lana sing. "I’m addicted to a life that’s so empty and so cold."
