Lana Del Rey is one of the most powerful, if elusive, voices in pop. In the last year, Del Rey has recorded tracks with the Weeknd, Brian Wilson, and producer and Chateau Marmont regular Emile Haynie. She was tapped by Harvey Weinstein to write a track for Tim Burton’s acclaimed film Big Eyes — the song earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2015. And if you watched the VMAs last month, it’s pretty clear that even Taylor Swift is paying attention to what Del Rey does next. But still, something about the ethereally retro singer-songwriter seems out of reach.

All this time, according to a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Del Rey maintains that she has been working steadily on her forthcoming third LP, Honeymoon, since wrapping up her last album, 2014’s Ultraviolence. With just over one week to go until the official release on September 18th, we gathered all of the information that’s out there, from rare interviews and video clips to cryptic Instagram captions. This is everything we can say about the record so far.

“Honeymoon” Is the First and Title Track

We both know that its not fashionable to love me/But you dont go ’cause truly theres nobody for you but me,sings Lana Del Rey, sounding unadorned, as if setting ground rules, before being lifted out of reality on silken strings.

Del Rey recently told Beats 1 that her third LP is inspired by the beach. If this song is any indication, she was reading a lot of Daphne Du Maurier between swim breaks. “Honeymoon” unfurls like a psychological thriller, where signs of ruin are as true and intangible as perfumed air. Dark blue, dark blueends one verse and begins another. We both know the history of violence that surrounds you,” sings Del Rey.

Del Rey posted a picture of the lyrics along with a clip of her incanting the words Our honeymoonin a requisite shaky close-up frame. In the clip, a tiger ambles out of the brush, as if it walked out of her 2010 “Born to Die” video and right into this new one. The fatalism of Born to Dieis implicit in Del Reys new honeymoon dream; she even calls her man Mr. Born to Lose. I love this song because it encapsulates all of the things that come naturally to me,Del Rey said via her website in July. In some ways I feel it’s where the record begins and ends.
