Lana Del Rey last night released her first of two new tracks expected this month. She gave Annie Mac the premiere of ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ and it has all the hallmarks of a classic.
Lana has made her name on a dream-like vocal and on this track she delivers that in spades. Falling somewhere near Chris Isaak’s brilliant song ‘Wicked Game’, it feels genteel and like a lapping ocean despite the somewhat sombre lyrical context.
With the follow-up album to 2017’s Lust for Life due out next year, the new song ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ was co-written and co-produced by Jack Antonoff. With the other track, called ’Venice Bitch’, set to be released 18th September.
Take a listen to the new song below.
