This creative reunion follows Lana Del Rey’s ninth full-length album, ‘Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd,’ released in March. The critically acclaimed album garnered multiple nominations at the 2024 Grammys, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Alternative Music Album.
Recently, Lana Del Rey treated fans to a sneak peek of an unreleased track titled ‘Henry, Come On’ through a social media clip. The stripped-down song featured fingerpicked acoustic guitar, complementing Del Rey’s ethereal vocals as she sang introspective lyrics.
Lana Del Rey spent time in Alabama last summer, even taking on a shift at a local Waffle House. Her exploration of country music was further evident with a cover of the John Denver classic ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ released as a one-off single last month.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Del Rey shared insights into her Waffle House stint, explaining it was a result of spending seven straight days at one in Florence, Alabama, with her siblings before deciding to work there. Del Rey humorously recounted her excitement on the first day, saying, “We were on our third hour, and the servers asked, ‘Do you guys want shirts?’ Hell yeah! We were thrilled.”
