“High By The Beach,” the second single off Lana Del Rey’s forthcoming album Honeymoon, is officially set to drop tomorrow. But after it leaked online over the weekend, fans are already excited by what they hear.
The song finds Del Rey singing to a boyfriend who she doesn’t seem to care much about. The lyrics are assertive and scathing at times, and even include a light hip-hop beat underneath the chorus.
She sings, “”You could be a bad motherfucker/but that don’t make you a man” and “The truth is I never bought into your bullshit when you would pay tribute to me/Because I know that all I want to do is get high by the beach.”
With this slight twist of her sound, we’re excited to see what other surprises she has in store on the new album.
Honeymoon is scheduled to drop in September. But for now, enjoy getting “High By The Beach” below.
