Published May 15, 2017We're not sure exactly when Lana Del Rey's Lust for Life will arrive, but in the meantime, she has already released a couple of songs from the collection with "Love" and "Lust for Life." Now, she's shared yet another new tune, this one titled "Coachella - Woodstock in My Mind."
The track is a sultry ballad that puts an electronic spin on Lana's classic torch-song style. The lyrics recount an experience watching a performance at Coachella (we even hear the sound of a festival crowd cheering) and take a philosophical turn as Lana ruminates on war and asks, "What about all these children? And what about all their parents?" There's also a rather prominent lyrical hat-tip to "Stairway to Heaven" during the chorus.
Lana previously shared an a cappella snippet of this song on Instagram. She explained at the time that it was inspired by tensions in North Korea. Evidently the song was written just last month while stopping in the California forest on the drive home from Coachella.
Hear "Coachella - Woodstock in My Mind" below. Lust for Life will be out this year through Interscope.
