Last month, following her trip to Coachella Music Festival, Lana Del Rey uploaded a short video of a song she started writing on her way back to Los Angeles. In the middle of the woods, she sings what would eventually become the chorus of "Coachella - Woodstock In My Mind," released worldwide early this morning. The track is a reflection on attending the yearly music festival juxtaposed with the mounting political tensions and threats of violence worldwide, specifically North Korea's nuclear threat to America.

In a handwritten letter, a photo of which she posted to Instagram, Lana thanks her producers for turning around the track so quickly, and takes a second to reflect on being able to make music as a profession. She finishes the letter by promising that her music video for "Lust for Life" with The Weeknd is coming soon. In the meantime, listen to "Coachella - Woodstock In My Mind" below.
