Lana Del Rey gives us another sweet taste of emotion that she’s promised to anticipating fans with the release of her third single from her upcoming album Norman Fucking Rockwell.

Her new single, “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it,” almost seems like a stripped-down recording because of its sound that’s held back when compared to Del Rey’s typical strong, building sound. Soft, beautifully muffled piano backs her smooth voice that feels like it’s about to break from the cage of inner self.

The track’s lighter elements don’t take away from its power, though. Del Rey still manages to reach into the deepest cave of your soul, and you feel it – just like you always do with Del Rey’s beautifully desperate and melancholic voice.

Del Rey alludes to artists like Slim Aaron and authors like Sylvia Plath, who the exhaustive titled track was originally named after. She explains the effects of being compared to the “all of these debutantes” in Aaron’s photos.

Del Rey says the forthcoming album produced by Jack Antonoff is done, but there’s no mention of its release date. On the other hand, she recently announced that her first poetry book is set to release along with the album this year.

Listen to the three singles out now from Norman Fucking Rockwell.
