Following the release of singles “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch,” Lana Del Rey has teased a third track, “Sylvia Plath.”
Before the release of each single, Del Rey has shared a teaser video of the tracks on Instagram, and she’s just released one for “Sylvia Plath.” The snippet shows a slowed down, simplified ballad from the jazzy pop singer.
“I want to put one song out in October but I don’t know if it really makes sense to do it because it’s sort of like a standalone song,” Del Rey told Zane Low in an interview last month. “Not a fun one. Just a serious and thoughtful one.”
Listen to the preview and check out the lyrics for “Sylvia Plath” below.
I was reading Slim Aarons
and I got to thinking that I thought maybe I’d get less stressed if I was tested less
like all of these debutantes-
smiling for miles
in pink dresses and high heels
on white yachts.
But I’m not
