Lana Del Rey has revealed that a song off her anticipated third album is titled “Music To Watch Boys To.” She was talking with Los Angeles Times about how her music ends up being “noirish and visual,” whether for albums like 2014’s Ultraviolence — a reader and critic favorite alike — or films like Tim Burton‘s Big Eyes (the title track, “I Can Fly”).

“I can see it and I can hear it,” Del Rey said. “I’m working on a new record now, and I have this one song, ‘Music To Watch Boys To.’ The title lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl’s eyes, her face. I can definitely see things.”

The “West Coast” singer has been working with Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Bruno Mars) on her third album, with the music bearing a “strong jazzy influence.” It’s due out in August 2015.

Del Rey also recorded a song with producer Emile Haynie (Eminem, Kanye West), though it’s likely to appear on his album instead of her follow-up to Ultraviolence.
