Lana Del Rey is back with new music, dropping "Let Me Love You Like a Woman" - the first single from her forthcoming LP Chemtrails Over the Country Club. The track is her first solo song this year. Its sound is similar to "Mariners Apartment Complex" and "Hope Is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me to Have- but I Have It", both songs from her previous album.

New single "Let Me Love You Like A Woman" emerges from this energy, and it's a hushed return from the singer. "Let me shine like a diamond, let me be who I'm meant to be". The premiere composition is called "Let Me Love You Like A Woman" and was created with the help of Jacek Antonoff, the artist's permanent collaborator. "Feels so good to have my favorite song out in the open air XOXO". That takes us to the loved-up, sparse and distinctly melancholy chorus. "We came here to f-ing live", someone replies.

If you need a piano slow-burner in your life today, you can grab one courtesy of Lana Del Rey. A video accompaniment was released this morning as well on her YouTube channel in a vlog montage format.

This year she's stepped into controversy after controversy, from her Instagram screed about how she's treated unfairly compared to the likes of Cardi B and Beyoncé to her appearance a few weeks ago at an L.A. book signing where she wore a mesh face mask not exactly in keeping with COVID-19 precautions.
