CURRENT: Lana Del Rey – “Honeymoon”

What Lana Del Rey has accomplished in music is pretty impressive. For an artist with only one radio hit to her name, the Cedric Gervais remix of “Summertime Sadness”, Del Rey has become one of the better album selling artists in the 2010s. Following last year’s turn towards rock ‘n roll on Ultraviolence, LDR slows things down to a snail’s pace on the first teaser from her forthcoming Honeymoon LP, the album’s title track. Much like previous showstopper “Video Games,” “Honeymoon” works in ways it shouldn’t. One of Del Rey’s best qualities is her ability to weave her way into a melody, all fronted by lyrics that showcase her singularity as an artist. Oftentimes audiences crave for an artist to experiment with their sound, to take unforeseen risks with their music. “Honeymoon” finds Lana Del Rey very much operating within the lane she helped construct. Who says you can’t grow by staying the same?
