Earlier this week, Lana Del Rey teased two songs: a cover of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” which is for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark film adaptation, and “Looking For America,” which was written in response to last weekend’s tragic shootings.
And lucky for us, they have now been released in full.
However, these songs will not be featured on Lana’s new album Norman Fucking Rockwell that comes out August 30.
“Looking for America” begins by describing a scenic road trip through California where Del Rey croons that she “pulled over to watch the children play in the park/ We used to only worry for them after dark.”
Later in the song, she sings “I used to go to drive-ins and listen to the blues/ So many things that I think twice about before I do.”
As for “Season of the Witch.” Lana is able to stay true to the original while giving it some “Lana” uniqueness.
