Hot on the heels of supposedly clearing — according to Lana Del Rey— the whole Radiohead kerfuffle in which a lawsuit was filed over LDR’s song “Get Free” and its similarities to “Creep,” the noir Hollywood crooner has teased some audio to a forthcoming tune called, “Happiness is a Butterfly.”

Twirling around in the sunlight with her usual lips on full pout blast in some room from what is assumed to be her home, it’s pretty much an extension of the Lust For Life brooding lounge melodrama she’s become so adept at crafting, bound around a barebones piano fill and a winged insect metaphor about happiness and its elusiveness.

In case you can’t make out the lyrics, LDR included the short verse we’re let in on within her Instagram post:

happiness is a butterfly
try to catch it like every night
it escapes from my hands
into moonlight.
every day is a lullaby
I hum it on the phone like every night
and sing it for my babies on the tourlyfe

Coupled with a tweet earlier in the month that may or may not be another verse from the song, drink up ‘tourlyife babies’, it appears as though Momma LDR will be dropping some new tunes shortly.
