The singer and songwriter shared a preview of the record on Instagram
Lana Del Rey wants some man named Henry to at least try to be a little bit serious. On Thursday morning, the singer and songwriter previewed an unreleased song on Instagram with the caption: “Henry, Come On.” The brief snippet found the singer slipping into the role of a frustrated country/folk singer, crooning: “Do you think I’d really choose it? All of this off and on? Henry come on.”
From the sound of it, Henry lacks both seriousness and accountability. “Baby come on, do you think I’d really lose it on ya? If you did nothing wrong? Henry come on,” Del Rey sings in the clip, which she posted with a black-and-white Polaroid. In the blurry photo, she can be seen swiping her thumb across her eye.
In the caption, she also tagged Luke Laird, the country music producer known for his work with Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, and more. The pair haven’t previously collaborated on any of Del Rey’s projects.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Del Rey would headline Coachella for the first time. The singer will perform on Friday, April 12 and Friday, April 19. The performances will mark her first time back in the desert in a decade. Back in 2014, she delivered a Tumblr dashboard-come-to-life performance to a sea of fans adorned with flower crowns.
Del Rey is also up for five awards at next month’s Grammy Awards for last year’s Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd? The record is up for both Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album. Meanwhile, “A&W” is nominated for Song of the Year and Best Alternative Music Performance, while “Candy Necklace” with Jon Batiste is up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
The singer is also the latest star in the Valentine’s Day campaign for Kim Kardashian’s Skims brand. “Warning: things are about to get crazy… For a long time,” the singer wrote in an Instagram story teasing the collection, which crowned her: “Music’s queen of hearts.”
