On the moody, reverb-heavy track off her new album (out June 17), Lana plays the lovesick flower child we all know that she is, but it’s not all peace and love, she’s dealing with whether or not her older flame can handle her hipster lifestyle.

“My boyfriend’s in the band, he plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed,” she sings over a persistent snare drum. “I’ve got feathers in my hair, I get down to Beat poetry…I’m a Brooklyn baby.”
