The song was recorded in 2013 and three takes were done.
On June 18, 2016, Del Rey posted a video of herself singing an acapella snippet of the song on Instagram. She captioned the post saying: "It’s so hot out today and all the birds are singing. I was reminded of a lullaby I wrote years ago called Cherry Blossom".
The version that is popularly known as the studio version is a remix made by the DJ Kristijan Majic using the vocals from the snippet.
On May 1, 2019, a snippet of the final version was leaked on a video via Instagram, but it was quickly deleted. The full version leaked minutes later on a Tumblr account. It is the third version and it features some different lyrics than the acapella posted by Del Rey.
