Lana Del Rey has released her sparkling new track ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’.Lana Del Rey is currently in the studio working with Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff and is set to unveil two new songs in the coming weeks. A full-length record won’t be due for release until 2019 but Lana is excited to preview some early material from the sessions for fans. The first, ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’, was played on Annie Mac’s radio show as “Hottest Record In The World” last night and is available to stream and download now. The second track ‘Venice Bitch’ will debut next Tuesday September 18th – details to follow. Both songs will have accompanying visuals created in collaboration with her sister, mixed media artist Chuck.
‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ is a beautifully elegant number swooning in a delicious flurry of brooding melancholic romance. Graceful piano wistfully floats about the track while whining guitars lament over a steady beat and glistening bitter sweet dreamy soundscape. Del Rey’s vocals soothingly and sorrowfully coo over this delicate haze with dignity and a whispered rich warmth as lush backing vocals lull with a hushed consoling quality. This swooping, dreamy number blends perfectly into its psychedelic hues as it builds sweetly and delicately into a sublime soft crescendo. It’s another refined immaculate 1970s-style rock ballad from the noir pop goddess.
