Lana Del Rey – High By The Beach


“Your artistic streak is intoxicating and brings you into this world for the highs and the lows” – Zane Lowe, Beats 1

Lana del Ray unveiled her new single ‘High By The Beach’, which premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 and Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1.

From the skittering trap beats and synth infusions throughout, Lanas sultry vocals glide effortlessly above the hip-hop inspired beats. Lana’s infectious hook ‘All I wanna do is get high by the beach, get high by the beach, get high’, shrouds the song in a blissful haze, making it one of her poppiest contributions to date.

Speaking with Lowe, Del Ray commented:

It started with the chorus. I was driving by the beach a lot…Even with the harmonies, it almost sounded monotone. But then with the beat, it has this trap influence, which I liked.”

She continued to describe her creative approach:

‘It’s different for every artist. For me it was a way of sorting through questions I had and doing something I love doing…The lure for me is the blessing of being able to tell your life story and getting to be witnessed, if that’s something that’s important to you, which I think is important to everybody.

High By The Beach’ is Del Rey’s second single from her forthcoming LP, ‘Honeymoon‘, which is set for release in September. The single is available now on iTunes and GooglePlay
