Lana Del Rey pens new track after Coachella over the weekend

Lana Del Rey reveals that she's penned a song after attending Coachella over the weekend.

The 'Born to Die' hitmaker says that she felt "compelled" to stop off by the sequoia grove on her way back from the three-day music festival in California yesterday (April 17) to write a track to observe the tensions between the US and North Korea.

Sharing a clip of herself singing part of the song, she wrote on Instagram:

"I'm not gonna lie - I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount. I find It's a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God's good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated.

"On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway, where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song. I just wanted to
share this in hopes that one individual's hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run. Hope everyone has a nice day, with love from California (sic)"

The 31-year-old beauty recently unveiled the details of her new album, 'Lust For Life', the follow-up to 2015's, 'Honeymoon'.

The brunette beauty explained in a video how she needed "space" to create her record and needed to be as "far away" from "real life" as possible to capture her thoughts into songs following the "tumultuous times" American find themselves in following the election of President Donald Trump.
