Recorded back in 2013, the standalone track was originally intended to feature on the singer-songwriter’s third studio album ‘Ultraviolence’ (2014).
As Stereo gum notes, several iterations of the cut have since surfaced online. Last year, a sped-up clip from ‘Say Yes To Heaven’ went viral on TikTok.
Fans then noticed in March that the song had been copyrighted by UMG/Polydor ahead of its official release today (May 19). The single – which was co-written by Rick Nowels – is accompanied by a sped-up version.
‘Say Yes To Heaven’ marks Del Rey’s first release since dropping her ninth full-length, Did You Know There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, earlier this year.
The singer subsequently achieved her sixth UK Number One album with the project, beating Depeche Mode’s 15th LP ‘Memento Mori’ to the top spot. Del Rey also tied with Arctic Monkeys, Blur and Radiohead on the list of acts with the most UK number 1s to their name.
Last month Official Charts confirmed that ‘…Ocean Blvd’ was the 18th best selling album of 2023 so far. It has since become the year’s best-selling vinyl album and surpasses LPs by e.g. Taylor Swift and Paramore.
Del Rey is set to headline the Other Stage at Glastonbury 2023 next month. During a recent interview, the artist said it was “unfathomable” to her that she has such a prominent place at the legendary festival.
Following that show, Del Rey will top the bill on the final day of this summer’s BST Hyde Park concert series in London.
