As she explains in the video's caption, it was written after a post-Coachella visit to a sequoia grove (a "favourite old place" of hers) and it hears her reflecting on "complex feelings" about spending a weekend dancing away as global tensions escalated in North Korea.
Read the full description and listen to the tiny "Stairway to Heaven"-referencing musical snippet in the Instagram post below.
The track won't be appearing on Del Rey's upcoming album Lust for Life, which is already finished and ready for release on May 26 via Interscope.
I'm not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount. I find It's a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God's good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated. On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song. I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual's hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run. Hope everyone has a nice day, with love from California
