One of the best parts about Lana Del Rey’s sultry debut album Born To Die was that it introduced the singer to us as a self-proclaimed “gangster Nancy Sinatra,” mixing her newfound sadcore with bass-y hip-hop influences.
Since then, she distanced herself from trip-hop (for the most part), but her forthcoming album Lust for Life, out July 21, has already demonstrated a faithful return to the genre. Del Rey debuted two new songs from the record today, titled “Summer Bummer” and “Groupie Love,” which both feature rapper A$AP Rocky. As an added bonus, the former also features a guest turn from Playboi Carti.
Both songs dropped at noon on Beats Radio, and have since landed on Spotify.
Including the collabs with the rapper, there are five duets on Lust for Life — we’ve already heard the spaced-out pop of the title track, which features The Weeknd, and the just-released tracklist on iTunes also shows efforts with Stevie Nicks and Sean Ono Lennon.
Peep snippets of the songs, as well as the titles of all 16 songs, via iTunes.
