Soon-to-be featured on her sixth studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, Lana Del Rey has shared a new track titled “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it.”

Produced by Jack Antonoff, Lana’s latest release is a low-key number accompanied by a subtle piano that accentuates Del Rey’s breathy vocals about the author and poet Sylvia Plath – a major source of her inspiration.

The Grammy nominated artist sings, “I’ve been tearing around in my fucking nightgown 24/7/ Sylvia Plath/ Writing in blood on my walls/ ‘Cause the ink in my pen don’t work in my notepad/ Don’t ask if I’m happy, you know that I’m not, But at best I can say I’m not sad/ ‘Cause hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have.” The lyrics are driven home by the minimal use of production that highlights the song’s message. Listen to Lana Del Rey’s new Universal Music-released track below.

“Hope is a dangerous thing…” gives a better glimpse into the upcoming album’s overall feel, which includes previously unveiled recordings “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch” as well as the live-debuted works “Hey Blue Baby” and “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy.”
