"Color Blue" (also known as "The Color Blue" and "Wild on You) is the tentative name given to an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. The official title of the song is unknown as it is not registered on any music publishing sites. It was produced by Fabrizio Argiolas.
Background[edit | edit source]
The song was recorded in 2013 and comes from the same session as "Cherry Blossom".
On May 1, 2019, a snippet was leaked on a Tumblr account. The full song was leaked minutes later. The Tumblr account which posted the song could not confirm the official title of the track and claimed that it had never been given a name by Del Rey or the producer. The titles of this song and "Cherry Blossom" were under "Track 1" and "Track 2". The full instrumental leaked on June 5, 2019.
Speculation[edit | edit source]
Some fans speculate that the track is called and has been registered under "Wild One", however this is likely false since the tracks were produced by two different people. Although after a fan uploaded the track to Youtube, it was copyright-striked as "Wild One (Fusion Mix), so it is also possible that this track is a demo for "Wild One", but this is currently unconfirmed.
