Lana Del Rey shares Coachella-inspired track
Lana Del Rey has been recording in a studio and has now shared her Coachella-inspired track, "Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind". In the song, the star sings the lyrics:
“I was at Coachella, leaning on your shoulder, watching your husband swing and shine/ I’d say it was hella cool to win them over, critics can be so mean sometimes.
"What about all these children?
"Maybe my contribution/ Could be as small as hoping/ That words could turn to birds and birds would send my thoughts your way.”
The singer-songwriter felt "compelled" to stop off at a sequoia grove on her way back from the three-day music festival in California last month to write the track and 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 star's latest track follows two previous releases from “Lust for Life,” “Love” and the album’s title track, a duet with The Weeknd.
Del Rey's forthcoming album, "Lust For Life," is expected to arrive soon.
