Update (9/8): It might not be a single, but it's a total banger. Lana Del Rey has dropped yet another sweetly morose tune, "Music To Watch Boys To" via Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show. The song will arrive on her upcoming, high-anticipated Honeymoon LP. In it, she whispers for a desperate chorus, "I like you a lot / So I do what you want." Listen to it here.
Original Story (6/4): Lana Del Rey recently announced plans to drop her new album Honeymoon this fall, meaning its first single had to be on the way. Today, we get a major hint that seems to indicate the Ultraviolence star's new direction and release schedule.
Male model Jake Mast shared two new photos of himself with the singer on Twitter, captioning the snaps with: "Lana del Rey music video titled 'Music To Watch Boys To' coming out verry soon this month!! Check us out!" Meaning the beefcake probably plays Lana's love interest in the visual.
The title and timing all make sense given everything we know about Honeymoon. Lana previously spoke about the song in an interview, telling the Los Angeles Times her new music was "noirish and visual." She also gave a slightly dreamy, very vague description of the song, saying, "I have this one song, 'Music to Watch Boys To,' it lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl’s eyes, her face. I can definitely see things."
Honeymoon is due for September, meaning a single in June would give just the right amount of lead-in time.
There's been no official announcement regarding "Music to Watch Boys To," but it's safe to say it'll be Lana season very soon.
