Lana Del Rey has announced that High By The Beach will be the next single off her upcoming third album Honeymoon and will be released Aug. 10.

The album art remains true to her typical pastel palette and features Del Rey standing next to a model sailboat, looking resplendent in a mint green silk lace robe over a floral print silk chemise.

The latest single comes on the heels of the release of the title track of Lana Del Rey's album last month. Although the full-length album's release date has not been confirmed, this follow-up to her 2014's Ultraviolence, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last year, is due out sometime this fall.

Del Rey made the announcement on both her personal Instagram account and her “Honeymoon” Instagram account.

Billboard magazine is also reporting that Lana Del Ray will be featured on a track called Prisoner for The Weeknd's upcoming album, Beauty Behind the Madness. While a rep for the Weeknd called the leaked tracklist "inaccurate and incomplete," they didn't specifically deny the Lana duet exists.

Amazon apparently shared the 14-song track list off The Weeknd’s sophomore album. According to The Inquisitr, Ed Sheeran started the rumor that The Weeknd also collaborated with Kanye West, but their track didn’t make it on the final cut. Instead, the Can’t Feel My Face singer collaborated with Lana Del Rey.

It seems as if Lana Del Rey's personal life has been more prevalent than her music lately since she has been linked to actor James Franco.

Perhaps this latest single will redirect focus on Lana Del Rey's music rather than one her personal life.
