Lana Del Rey Debuts Sexy New Song ‘West Coast’ — Listen

Your favorite throaty singer is back! After lighting the world on fire with her retro-indie attitude in 2012, Lana is prepping to release her third album and has given fans a new taste with the bipolar song, “West Coast.” Read on to listen and tell us what YOU think!

We didn’t think we’d ever say this, but we really missed Lana Del Rey. After the singer stole our souls with her haunting rendition of “Once Upon a Dream” for Maleficent, Lana dropped her new single “West Coast” on April 14 to ramp up anticipation for her next album, Ultraviolence.

Lana Del Rey Debuts ‘West Coast’

The song, as most Lana tracks are, is remarkably captivating, mostly because it’s like two songs in one. One section is relatively upbeat with a cooler than cool, rumbling guitar while Lana croons about her beloved West Coast before ramping up the emotion and injecting a little Tori Amos into the track.

But just like that, the music breaks down and “West Coast” becomes a slow-burning, vibrating love song. Then, just as you’re getting used to this new sound, the song morphs back into its original form. It’s a daring approach to a song, and the track proves that Lana is trying to push herself and her sound with this upcoming third album, which is set to be released later in 2014.

Along with the song, Lana released a trademark looped video of her and a hunky guy in leather on the beach, which was fitting — the over and over again loop — because it makes your head spin as much as the song itself.

So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Take a listen above and let us know!
