That might be a little boring for any other artist, but two people singing to each other on the Hollywood sign is basically Lana Del Rey's core brand. The track hits all the marks that the pair have set out for themselves: Drugs, sex, death, and a dash of celebrity. She previously shared the song "Love".

Earlier this week, Lana confirmed as much in a cover story with Dazed, telling interviewer Courtney Love that the Weeknd and radio mainstay producer Max Martin helped lend the song that quality. The singer recently unveiled a witch-themed trailer for the album and teased that the record is "coming soon". "It's the title track of the record-Lust for Life", she captioned the snap, tagging their location as "Hollyweird". They sang together on the 2015 song "Prisoner" and Del Rey made a scene-stealing appearance on the short "Stargirl Interlude" off last year's Starboy. I played it for him and he liked it. No word yet on a release date for the new album. "But I don't know, as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that". "But then I was feeling like it was missing something, a little bit of the Shangri-Las element, so I went back for a fourth time and layered it up with harmonies". She captioned the clip, "I'm not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w (with) North Korea mount".
