The home-recorded clip at the beginning of Lana Del Rey's newly released "Honeymoon" might seem like a throwback to her earliest work (see: "Video Games"), but the song itself certainly isn't. Lush with classical string arrangements and deftly layered vocal harmonies, the lead single off her upcoming third album gives us a gentler, softer Lana -- the kind of woman who pleads, "Say you want me too" -- than the steely-eyed alt-pop princess we saw in previous hits like "Born to Die." Keep your eyes (ears?) peeled for the full album, because if this track is any indication, we'll be hearing Del Rey at her romantic, noirish best.
