Lana Del Rey just released another new song, called "Coachella - Woodstock In My Mind," which will possibly appear on her forthcoming album Lust For Life.
In classic Lana fashion, her latest offers a sorrowful, mopey and brilliant reflection of youth, death and love. While she sways in the California festival's crowd, she wonders how the world can possibly celebrate amidst so much injustice: "I'd trade it all for a stairway to heaven," she sings. "I'd trade the fame and the fortune and the legend / I'd give it all away if you'd give me just one day to ask him one question."
Lana sounds like she's wanting to speak with God about the world's tumultuous state, but that's just us hypostulating. After all, she could just be serving what we've always known her to serve well: sad girl at a music festival.
Lana teased the song last month on Instagam, writing, "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."
