Yesterday a new EP from Lana Del Rey leaked to the internet. While blogs were initially picking up the slow jam “Black Beauty,” a quick search on Soundcloud revealed that there were four more tracks.
For me, the stand out has to be “Hollywood,” a more uptempo and uncharacteristic Lana Del Rey track that falls slightly on the dream pop side of things. The rest of the tracks are a little bit cumbersome, though I’d have to say that “JFK” was a pretty interesting listen — perhaps just for the chord progression.
No word on when the EP Black Beauty will officially be released, but it’s probably safe to say that a number of these tracks will be on the songstress’s third full-length album, reportedly set for release sometime this year.
