Lana Del Rey somehow became a mainstream pop star on the back of a cheesed-out Euro-dance remix of her “Summertime Sadness,” and maybe that’s why she’s suddenly made a disco song. The new LDR track “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” recently showed up online without much in the way of context, and there’s no indication that it’ll appear on her forthcoming sophomore album Ultraviolence (which the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach may be producing). The track welds a liquid funk guitar and big, thudding beat to the melodramatic strings and narcotized vocals we’ve come to expect from this lady. It’s a bit of a mess, but at least it’s an interesting mess. Listen below.
Ultraviolence is coming out later this year on Interscope.
