What Will Make the Cut?

Recommended Posts

We've learned about a lot of different songs that Lana has worked on during the past few years and knowing her, at least a few will be included on her forthcoming fifth studio album. The goal of this thread is to put in some early guesses on which tracks make the album and which ones get scrapped. Fill out the list below and I'll record your ballot in the OP. The person who comes closest to the actual answer gets bragging rights when the tracklist is announced. jj2 

 

Recent rumored track titles:

Spoiler

 

Architecture - Will have leaked about two years prior to the album dropping, so it doesn't seem very likely to be included. She did promise a standalone single release for it at some point, but those plans may have been scrapped. I'm just including it for completeness. 

Bartender - Mentioned by Lana during an interview by Pitchfork on the Grammys Red Carpet in January 2018. Described as a "weird" song that she hoped to find a home for eventually. This track was likely made prior to her sessions with Jack Antonoff, which seem to have begun in February, so it may have been scrapped.

Happiness is a Butterfly - Previewed by Lana on Instagram during March 2018. Confirmed to be produced by Jack Antonoff. Footage that later was used for the Mariners Apartment Complex video was originally shot for use in a video for this song, indicating she may no longer be intending to release it.

Mariners Apartment Complex - Released without much fanfare and in a way that never specifically confirmed it would be part of the album. Lana claimed that she was unsure if she was even going to put it out initially, but ended up deciding to, which throws its status into question. Nonetheless, this one seems like a pretty good bet to be on the album.

Mary (Scared of Me) - A rumored outtake from Lust For Life, which has never been specifically confirmed to exist by a reliable source. Some have stated that this title was a fake made by a trader to see if the fanbase was gullible enough to believe it, but others refute that.

Roses Bloom For You - Originally conceived of as an intro track on Lust For Life, but removed from the tracklist as development continued. Lana has played parts of this track (possibly the entire track) during Instagram videos on two separate occasions.

Sylvia - This track was rumored to have been mentioned by Lana to a fan after her concert in San Diego in February. She apparently indicated at that time that this track was about Sylvia Plath. There is no specific confirmation that this incident ever occurred, as no video evidence has ever been posted to indicate as such.

Talking Like an Answering Machine - A title registered on several regional registration entities during early 2018, which was apparently first discovered around February 2018. The registration is non-standard, using "Lana Del Rey" as the registered writer, rather than her legal name "Elizabeth Grant" like all other entries on these sites. Due to that discrepancy, this registration may be a fake that was placed online by another entity.

Venice Bitch - The second song Lana intends to release in the coming week. Just as with Mariners Apartment Complex, Lana has made no specific statements about the status of this song as a lead single, promotional single or standalone single. Again, I'd say this is another safe bet to include.

Wild One - A track registered in September 2015, alongside what was then titled "Beautiful People" (later the Stevie Nicks collab "Beautiful People Beautiful Problems"), as a co-write with Justin Parker. Though a long shot, this track may have been reworked at some point, just as BP was.

Yosemite - Famously removed from the tracklist of Lust For Life for reasons relating to its subject matter. Though this song is somewhat old now, Lana has expressed that it's one of her favorites and wanted to release it as a single at some point.

After this point, guesses were made with the knowledge that Mariners Apartment Complex and Venice Bitch were both on the album, due to confirmation from Lana during her interview with Zane Lowe.

Given her past record of scrapped material I'll be surprised if anything except the two tracks she's currently released make it.

If anything else does I'd expect it to be a bonus track.

This means that the most correct ballot was @Hunty Bear who got everything right other than the inclusion of The Next Best American Record!
