How many old demos does Lana Del Rey have lying around? The flood of unreleased tracks continues today (August 14) with “True Love On The Side” — a half-finished rock demo that finds the “Ride” singer wailing over crunching guitars and a tinny drum beat. It’s obviously a very early draft of the song but this had potential.
“I’m a lion in a party dress, I won’t stop until I get the best” is a quintessentially Del Rey call-to-action and the spoken word chorus sticks in your head even if the lyrics are a little clumsy. Exhibit A — “I’m everything you want but it’s hard to decide, everybody wants true love on the side!”
As with the multitude of other leaks floating around the internet, this is an interesting glimpse into the evolution of Lana as an artist and a tidy little snack to keep us going until her next album. Listen after the jump.
