Lana Del Rey has discussed the influences behind her new track, ‘High By The Beach‘.

The singer, who released misused on Monday night (August 10), told Zane Lowe on Beats 1: “It’s a little like a hip-hop record. It started using the chorus. I was driving from the beach lots. This was probably one of many last ones within the record… Even with all the harmonies, it almost sounded monotone. But together with the beat, it’s got this trap influence.”

Speaking regarding the making of her new record ‘Honeymoon’ around the whole, Del Rey added: “I was always desire to take advantage of feeling inspired simply because you don’t think that all the time. The jumping off point was the final of the other one. I wasn’t feeling too tired, still feeling inspired like I could carry on.”

“I didn’t think it will turn into a wholly new record, but by January I’d written three-quarters of any record, also it felt great and could transform into a real record. I’ve been mixing for probably 8 weeks. It’s so technical. And sometimes it’s ready to go back into the studio and enjoy yourself writing.”

Any time you feel inspired or have new ideas, that process is actually easy. Everything that comes afterwards, like promoting the record, takes serious amounts of get used to.”
