Update (April 4, 9:05 am EST): “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” is actually not a track off Del Rey’s upcoming album, Ultraviolence. According to the singer, it’s a song she wrote four years ago for someone else that was leaked. Her first single off Ultraviolence will instead be “West Coast.”
With her new song, “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight,” Lana Del Rey is playing the girl of your dreams, making it known she’ll be your one-time baby, your little dairy queen. All for one little kiss.
The track off her upcoming album, Ultraviolence, has a bit of a disco flair with Lana cooing over a jumpy guitar line, “I’m the sweetest girl in town, so why are you so mean?”
It’s the first track fans have gotten to hear from her follow-up to her 2012 album, Born To Die, a testament to Lana’s ability to keep the details of under wraps. Since announcing her new album’s title last year, she has only revealed that Dan Auerbach produced the record and that it is “beautiful.”
“It is absolutely gorgeous – darker then the first – so dark it’s almost unlistenable and wrong. But I love it,” she wrote in a Twitter Q&A earlier this year.
