- Lana Del Rey Premieres New Song “Mariners Apartment Complex” on BBC Radio 1
- American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey premiered a new song “Mariners Apartment Complex” on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac.
The song is taken from her upcoming sixth studio album. It’s the first of two tracks, alongside with the upcoming “Venice Bitch”.
She unexpectedly announced the song’s title and release on her social media on September 7, 2018.
This time, she has worked with Jack Antonoff, who is known as former Fun and a songwriter for Taylor Swift, Pink, Troye Sivan, MØ and Lorde, among others.
Lana Del Rey said of the song in an interview:
"The song is about this time I took a walk late at night with a guy I was seeing, and we stopped in front his friend’s apartment complex, and he put his hand around my shoulder, and he said “I think we are together because we’re both similar, like we’re both really messed up” and I thought it was the saddest thing I’d ever heard. And I said, “I’m not sad, I didn’t know that’s why you thought you were relating to me on that level, I’m actually doing pretty good”. And he was upset, and that’s when I wrote the song. I thought, I had to do so many times, where you know like I had to sort of step on that role where I was showing the way and I was sort of being the brighter light. But that’s why it’s so cool that you’re playing it. ‘Cause I thought that I’d just put it out and it would be one of those things that I’d put out just to have there for myself, but it’s cool being able to share it with people too."
