Lana Del Rey is one of the most powerful, if elusive, voices in pop. In the last year, Del Rey has recorded tracks with the Weeknd, Brian Wilson, and producer and Chateau Marmont regular Emile Haynie. She was tapped by Harvey Weinstein to write a track for Tim Burton’s acclaimed film Big Eyes — the song earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2015. And if you watched the VMAs last month, it’s pretty clear that even Taylor Swift is paying attention to what Del Rey does next. But still, something about the ethereally retro singer-songwriter seems out of reach.
All this time, according to a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Del Rey maintains that she has been working steadily on her forthcoming third LP, Honeymoon, since wrapping up her last album, 2014’s Ultraviolence. With just over one week to go until the official release on September 18th, we gathered all of the information that’s out there, from rare interviews and video clips to cryptic Instagram captions. This is everything we can say about the record so far.
