It's going to be a dark week—there's no way around it. But if anything can offer us hope for this strange new year, it's the thought of new music from our favorite whispery warbler Lana Del Rey. And today Lana registered a new track, "Young & In Love," offering the latest sign that a new album could be blessing us this at some point year.
"Young & In Love" is reportedly produced by Emile Haynie, Rick Nowels and Benny Blanco, which is very exciting: Haynie collaborated with the Lana on her debut album Born to Die, as did Nowels, the two of them responsible for one of four all-time favorites, "Summertime Sadness." Blanco, meanwhile, is the producer behind pop staples, from Kesha's "Die Young" to Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream."

Of course, registering a song doesn't mean it will ever see the light of day, but with this production team attached, we pray it does. Lana has another track, "Wild Side," registered as well, and posted this studio selfie ten months ago, which means there must be some moody pop brilliance waiting to be shared.
Could Lana save 2017?
