The track appeared on streaming platforms early this evening. It’s yet to be announced whether this is the lead single from a new album by the Honeymoon artist, but the fact she has a busy summer of festival appearances scheduled suggests more new music is on its way.
Though ‘Love’ arrived online unannounced, there has been activity in Lana’s camp since the beginning of 2016 suggesting something was happening. Last month, a new song by the singer titled ‘Young and in Love’ was registered on a licensing database. The credits revealed that the track was co-written with ‘Born To Die’ collaborator Emile Haynie, ‘Summertime Sadness’ songwriter Rick Nowels and Katy Perry producer Benny Blanco.
Lana Del Rey’s last album, Honeymoon, was released in 2015. Last year, she collaborated with the Weeknd on two tracks, ‘Party Monster’ and ‘Stargirl Interlude’, from his latest album Starboy.
