Lana's Third Album Is Called 'Honeymoon'
Lana Del Rey isn't wasting any time between albums!

If the sounds of Lana Del Rey‘s 2014 album Ultraviolence left you longing for the sad orchestral tones of her debut LP, Born To Die, you might be thoroughly pleased with Emile Haynie‘s new track “Wait For Life.”

Haynie produced (or co-produced) much of Born To Die, including LDR staples like “Blue Jeans,” “Off To The Races” and “Summertime Sadness.” Here on his own song “Wait For Life,” the musician ropes in Lana for vocal duties, and you could honestly tell us this was a shelved Born To Die cut and we’d believe you one hundred percent.

Somber slide guitar notes kick off “Wait For Life” before strings and Lana’s humming float in.

“You’re like a baby who don’t got nowhere to go / I feel you eyeing me, you keep it on the low,” the recent Golden Globe Awards nominee sings.

“Wait For Life” will appear on Haynie’s debut album We Fall, which is due out February 24. Other vocalists featured on the LP include Lykke Li, Rufus Wainwright, Charlotte Gainsbourg, fun. frontman Nate Ruess and Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson.
