Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd have reunited, revealing that they have worked together on new music, and we could not be more excited. Music publishing rights organization ASCAP recently listed a new Lana track titled “Lust For Life” in their database with The Weekend credited as a songwriter. The enigmatic songstress teased their collab earlier this week with a good ol’ fashioned cryptic tweet.
Lizzie and Starboy have linked up several times before, but this will end up being the first time The Weeknd will appear on a Lana Del Rey album. Previously, Lana has featured on The Weekend’s albums Beauty Behind the Madness (on “Prisoner”) and Starboy (on “Party Monster” and “Stargirl Interlude”).
Both of them have been extremely busy lately. The Weeknd recently wrapped up his Starboy tour, and dropped a crazy Star Wars-themed video with Daft Punk for “I Feel It Coming.” Lana’s last album was 2015’s Honeymoon, and she’s currently wrapping up her newest, which so far is an untitled project. The first single, “Love,” from the upcoming LP dropped last month. With its themes of surviving in an increasingly precarious world, we can already see that the album will definitely be “just a little more socially aware,” as Lana explained in a recent interview.
Revisit the music video for “Love” below.
