Lana Del Rey kicks off her “Endless Summer” tour this week in Woodlands, Texas, and the enigmatic singer-songwriter may be bringing some new tunes with her to try out on the road.
According to Stereogum, the singer revealed that she has at least 10 new songs for her next album, which will be called Honeymoon. And it’s only natural to think Del Rey will be showcasing them when she takes the stage May 7th and beyond. The songs include nine originals and at least one cover.
In an interview with the L.A. Times recently, the Lana Del Rey revealed that one of the song titles for the new album is “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,” Lana described.
She’s also reportedly shot a new music video for the song, as reported by Inquistr. Del Rey posted pics of herself onset last week via Twitter.

Acclaimed producer Mark Ronson recently revealed that he is collaborating with Lana on the new album. He told Interview that he was “going to do some recording with Lana Del Rey” while he was visiting Los Angeles.
“She has some songs and I said I had some demo ideas, and if they are any good, then maybe she’ll like them and we’ll go from there.”
He then revealed that his method of contacting Lana was a bit unorthodox with Ronson seeking out Del Rey and not the other way around. “I call everybody until I find somebody who’s actually making an album, and then I’m like, ‘Well, can I just do some demos for free.’ [laughs].”
The current Endless Summer tour, meanwhile, kicks off in Texas before immediately heading West. The tour takes Lana Del Rey through Dallas and Phoenix before swinging up the California coastline and into Ridgefield, Washington. From there, Lana will take her “Endless Summer” tour through the midwest before playing a few gigs in Canada as well. Finally, Del Rey circles down the East Coast briefly, performing in Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia before wrapping up the tour in West Palm Beach, Florida at the Cruzan Amphitheater.
No word on exactly when the new Lana Del Rey album “Honeymoon” will hit, but it’s a good bet that if you catch her on tour, you’ll get a special sneak preview.
