Lana Del Rey hints at new collaboration with rapper The Weeknd

Lana Del Rey has hinted she has a new collaboration with The Weeknd in the works.

The 'Born to Die' hitmaker took to Twitter recently to share the name of the Canadian rapper's record label "XO," leading fans to believe they've worked together again on a song for Del Rey's hotly-anticipated fifth studio LP.

The pair previously teamed up on the 'Cant Feel My Face' star's 2015 song 'Prisoner' from 'Beauty Behind The Madness' and 'Stargirl Interlude' from his latest outing 'Starboy'.

The singer recently dropped the track 'Love', from her follow-up to 2016's 'Honeymoon,' which was produced by her long-time collaborator, Rick Nowels, alongside contributing producers Benny Blanco and Emile Haynie.

Del Rey recently updated fans about her album, saying that she's altered the direction, following the election of US President Donald Trump. She said:

"I started out thinking that the whole record was gonna have a sort of a '50s-'60s feeling, kind of some kind of Shangri-Las, early Joan Baez influences. But I don't know, as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that. So because of that, the sound just got really updated, and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have. I guess it's a little more socially aware. It's kind of a global feeling."

"My label, Interscope, is pretty flexible and open to my records coming out at any time, so I don't have that pressure. I'm just happy to be able to keep on making music I can stand behind. That's enough for me."
