‘High By The Beach’ will appear on Del Rey’s new album ‘Honeymoon’. The singer recently told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that the single is “a little like a hip-hop record” and that it also has trap influences. “It started with the chorus. I was driving by the beach a lot,” she said. “This was probably one of the last ones on the record… Even with the harmonies, it almost sounded monotone. But with the beat, it has this trap influence.”

Speaking about the making of her new record ‘Honeymoon’, Del Rey added: “I always want to take advantage of feeling inspired because you don’t feel that all the time. The jumping-off point was the end of the other one. I wasn’t feeling too tired, still feeling inspired like I could keep going.”
