Lana Del Rey Goes ‘Old-School Italian’ with “Salvatore”

With just a handful of days until the release of Honeymoon, Lana Del Rey is streaming another new song from the upcoming record. The new song is titled “Salvatore” and finds the songstress even singing a couple of lines in Italian. The track made its official debut Tuesday (Sept. 15) afternoon on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 show.

In the interview that followed the song’s debut, Del Rey revealed that the track is the most different song on the album since it gives an “old school Italian feel.” Stephens’ proceeds to describe the song “as filmic” which Del Rey agreed with. Then, Stephens’ asked her if she had done any soundtrack work before. As any Del Rey fans can tell you, the answer to that question is yes. In 2014 she covered the Sleeping Beauty song, “Once Upon A Dream” for Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent and in the same year, she contributed two songs (“Big Eyes” and “I Can Fly”) to Tim Burton’s film, Big Eyes.

Listen to the new song here which is then followed by the interview with Del Rey.

“Salvatore” will join “High by the Beach,” “Honeymoon,” “Music to Watch Boys To,” and “Terrence Loves You” on Honeymoon which is set to be released this Friday, Sept. 18 through Polydor/Interscope Records.
