    Lana Del Rey announced the release date for her new album Honeymoon, september 18. 

    The first single is called High By The Beach and it reached numer 1 on Itunes.  

    Comment your thoughts on the song, and the possibilities of the album being nominated for next year Grammy Awards.

    It’s catchy but nowhere near as good as Lana’s previous first singles. Let’s hope she gets the overdue recognition she deserves.

    Don’t you think it’s exactly what she needed? Ultraviolence was very disapointing for many because of it’s slower and darker feeling (I adore it), this catchy hook and beat it’s more commercial, and she needs more public support to keep herself alive after Ultra.

    Still not a great song, just good and fun. A little late for being a summer song tho.

    I like it, especially the beat and the hook, but it’s not as good as some of her previous singles.

    I actually really liked “Ultraviolence”. I think it deserved a Pop Vocal Album nomination.

    Ultraviolence’s first half (until Sad Girl) + Florida Kilos (the last track) are just some of Lana’s finest musical moments. The rest of the album is just a bunch of nonsensical, repetitive, boring songs that lead the album nowhere. It’s a downgrade from Born To Die (an absolutely flaw-free album) but it’s still good nonetheless.

    I have high expectations about Honeymoon but so far out of the two singles released, I didn’t like one of them and didn’t actually warm up to the other.

    I really liked about half the songs on “Ultraviolence” and didn’t like the others at all. I am not a fan of “High by the Beach,” and I haven’t listened to “Honeymoon” more than once to form an opinion.

    Big fan of “High by the Beach” and apparently lots of people are. It is #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. WOW!

    While I did really enjoy Ultraviolence, I think Honeymoon is shaping up to be a mix of old temptress Lana and last year’s mellow, moody rocker Lana.

    Very surprising to see it so high! And number 1 on Digital Songs. This is the sound people like on her, she needed the little commercial appeal to get back in the game. If radio played it and she performed it, the song could have some longevity.

    Yeah, I’m curious about its longevity on the charts. I’m not sold on the fact that it has long-term appeal. I’m also quite surprised the public craved new music from her so soon after Ultraviolence, which was released just over a year ago.

    Ok so apparently “High by the Beach” didn’t debut at #7 with 248,000 sales but actually #51 with 67,000. How on earth were they that off? Anyways, I really enjoy the song because it’s reminds of Born to Die/Paradise!

    I’m super excited for Honeymoon! It’s looks like it’s going to be Ultraviolence meets Born to Die which sounds amazing. Hopefully the track list will come out soon!

    Ugh I hope this puts her back on the awards map. She should’ve won by now.

    Lana Del Rey is a horrible singer and her music stinks.  However, she may be able to get another Best Pop Vocal Album nomination since it’s such a weak year.

    Lana has yet to fail me. ‘High’ is quite good. I am excited for the new album.

    My guess is that she won’t be nominated, but she’ll probably deserve a spot.

    Not sure Honeymoon will get a Grammy nomination if last year’s Ultraviolence failed to. Time will tell.
