Lana Del Rey Releases New Single ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’

The post-summer blues are officially here, with Lana Del Rey’s highly anticipated new single.

The newly released single also has Bleacher’s member Jack Antonoff featured, and will be shortly followed with ‘Venice Bitches’, which is being released on Tuesday 18th September.

Lana’s individuality seeps through the track. The classically tireless, lyrical rhyming is introduced with piano, before her signature, elegant vocals sooth there way through, accompanied with angelic strums. The distanced vocals gradually become closer which leads the track to the bridge, where a heavier, liquified, distorted guitar sets the song amongst the Californian sunset.

Lines from the song include the following: Catch a wave and take in the sweetness
Think about it, the darkness, the deepness… ‘Cause even in the dark I feel your resistance
You can see my heart burning in the distance. 

The full album will not be released until 2019, but with this teaser, we are already not-so-patiently awaiting.

See the black and white, concept video Lana Del Rey has released, which was directed by her sister, Chuck Grant, with the lyrics for the song below:

[Verse 1]
You took my sadness out of context
At the mariners apartment complex
I ain’t no candle in the wind

I’m the board, the lightning, the thunder
Kind of girl who’s gonna make you wonder
Who you are and who you’ve been

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And who I’ve been is with you on these beaches
Your Venice bitch, your die-hard, your weakness
Maybe I could save you from your sins

So, kiss the sky and whisper to Jesus
My, my, my, you found this, you need this
Take a deep breath, baby, let me in

[Chorus]
You lose your way, just take my hand
You’re lost at sea, then I’ll command your boat to me again
Don’t look too far, right where you are, that’s where I am
I’m your man
I’m your man

[Verse 2]
They mistook my kindness for weakness
I f*cked up, I know that, but Jesus
Can’t a girl just do the best she can?

Catch a wave and take in the sweetness
Think about it, the darkness, the deepness
All the things that make me who I am

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And who I am is a big time believer
That people can change, but you don’t have to leave her
When everyone’s talking, you can make a stand

‘Cause even in the dark I feel your resistance
You can see my heart burning in the distance
Baby, baby, baby, I’m your man (yeah)

[Chorus]
You lose your way, just take my hand
You’re lost at sea, then I’ll command your boat to me again
Don’t look too far, right where you are, that’s where I am
I’m your man
I’m your man

[Outro]
Catch a wave and take in the sweetness
Take in the sweetness
You want this, you need this
(Are you ready for it? Are you ready for it? Are you ready for it?)
