Lana Del Rey has discussed the influences behind her new track, ‘High By The Beach’.
The singer, who released the only on Monday night (August 10), told Zane Lowe on Beats 1: “It’s a little like a hip-hop record. It started using the chorus. I was driving through the beach lots. This was probably on the list of last ones for the record… Even together with the harmonies, it almost sounded monotone. But using the beat, it offers this trap influence.”
Speaking concerning the making of her new record ‘Honeymoon’ about the whole, Del Rey added: “I was always wish to take advantage of feeling inspired simply because you don’t think that all the time. The jumping off point was the conclusion of the other one. I wasn’t feeling too tired, still feeling inspired like I could carry on.”
“I didn’t think it will turn into a completely new record, but by January I’d written three-quarters of the record, and yes it felt excellent and could change into a real record. I’ve been mixing for probably 8 weeks. It’s so technical. And sometimes it’s ready to go back into the studio enjoy yourself writing.”
The singer later told Radio 1’s Annie Mac: “I think I feel better about things because I know what you should expect. Making the records is fairly similar whenever. Any time you feel inspired or have new ideas, that process is absolutely easy. Everything that comes afterwards, like promoting the record, takes a serious amounts of get used to.”

Earlier this current year it was reported that Del Rey had written several tracks on her new album, which she says will probably be “very different” to ‘Ultraviolence’.
Lana Del Rey has reportedly recruited the help of producer Mark Ronson for that album, after The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach confirmed that she won’t be working using the singer following their collaboration on ‘Ultraviolence’.
