Lana Del Rey’s ‘Hope Is A Dangerous Thing…’ is a stunningly intimate portrait of an artist at the height of her powers

It's the latest taster ahead of forthcoming full-length 'Norman Fucking Rockwell'.

Lana Del Rey has dropped that brand new track she promised us last week.

Titled ‘Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have – But I Have It’, it’s the latest taster ahead of forthcoming full-length ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’.

Originally previewed last October, at which point it went under the name ‘Sylvia Path’, it’s an intimate, singular song that shows off Lana’s considerable talents to maximum effect. You can read our first thoughts here.

We’re expecting ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ to arrive before the summer, though no official release date has been announced yet. The album was produced by Jack Antonoff, and may feature two previously revealed tracks ‘Venice Bitch’ and Mariners Apartment Complex’.

A press release issued describes ‘Hope Is A Dangerous Thing…’ as a “fan track”, and claims the first single from the record is ‘coming soon’.
