It’s been hard to get excited for Lana Del Rey‘s Honeymoon. She hasn’t dropped a jaw-dropping a head of the album like she has in the past like with “Video Games” or “Shades of Cool.” Instead, we’ve gotten average-to-slightly-above-average leaks like the title track, “Terrence Loves You” and “Salvatore.” With the style of music Lana thrives in — the old, scratchy ballads of love and heartbreak — it can get a little boring, but at the album rolls through, I know it’ll earn at least a couple listens.
Honeymoon is entirely produced by Rick Nowels, who she’s worked with sporadically in the past before. He albums had bright moments with Emile Hayne on Born to Die, and the moods got much darker when she worked with Dan Auerbach on Ultraviolence, so we’ll see if she finds a middle ground on Honeymoon.
