We’re barely into 2017, but new music is on the horizon from a number of the biggest music stars in the world.
Lana Del Rey is expected to drop a new record, a follow up to her 2016 release, Honeymoon, in 2017.
Speaking about her new album, Del Rey stated she wanted the upcoming record to have a “pop-friendly” and “New York style” sound, and to be a little harder, faster, more upbeat, and less dreamy.
Well, three previously recorded demos by Lana Del Rey, including “Be My Daddy,” “Fine China” and “Yes To Heaven” have made their way online.
Be My Daddy was co-produced and written with John Frederick Fortis, and kicks off with a jazz feel, with piano backing.
However quickly transforms into something retro with sassy vocals backed by an electric guitar.
Fine China was originally meant to appear on Del Rey’s 2013 release Ultraviolence, but did not make the cut.
With just a piano, the song is a stripped back record where Lana sings about the deterioration of a formal union between her and a lover. The song was co-produced and written with Rick Nowels.
Yes To Heaven features haunting echoes as Lana sings about spending eternity with someone. It was also co-produced and written with Rick Nowels and recorded for Ultraviolence also.
Featuring the lyrics “If you dance I’ll dance, I’ll put my red dress on again. And if you fight I’ll fight, It doesn’t matter now it’s all gone.”
