Lana Del Rey has teased details of a new song which will feature on her forthcoming third album.

Del Rey discussed new song 'Music To Watch Boys To' in an interview with the LA Times. In the interview the singer discusses the songs she recorded for new Tim Burton film Big Eyes and the differences between recording music for a film and for her own albums.

Del Rey said that she does not differentiate between the two. "I can see it and I can hear it. I'm working on a new record now, and I have this one song, 'Music to Watch Boys To'. The title lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl's eyes, her face. I can definitely see things."

The singer released her second album 'Ultraviolence' in June 2014 but revealed later that year that she has already begun recording the third.

Big Eyes tells the story of American artist Margaret Keane, whose paintings (characterised by their illustrations of large eyeballs) were falsely credited to her husband. The movie stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. Del Rey is nominated for a Golden Globe for her song from the film.

Last year it was announced that Lana Del Rey will tour the US with Courtney Love in 2015. The two acts will hit the road together as part of the Endless Summer Tour. The joint stint will begin at the Woodlands Festival in Texas, before heading to Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and other cities.
