Lana Del Rey Wiki

"Roses Bloom for You" is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. It was recorded in early 2017 and produced by Rick Nowels. The song was recorded for her fifth studio album and fourth major-label studio album, Lust for Life, but ultimately did not make the final tracklist.

Background and writing[]

"Roses Bloom for You" was written during March 2017, and on June 3, 2017, Del Rey shared a video on her Instagram profile of herself recording the song in the studio with Rick Nowels, she captioned the video by saying:

"So many songs left on the cutting room floor but this was a special one I wrote in March called 'Roses bloom for you'. I don't film all my live takes but I'm glad I got this one because I was very excited about the beautiful chords my producer Rick Nowels found for this gem."[1]

On the same day, she also posted another short snippet of the same recording session on her Instagram story. Both the snippets were later removed from her Instagram profile. On December 26, 2017, Del Rey shared another video on Instagram of herself listening to what seems to be a more finalized version of the song featuring different vocal takes.[2]



Lilacs in my mind, all the time
Are blooming beautifully
Even though some stare and say
Her last affair went brutally
Well I don't let them rain on my parade
That's not my thing
'Cause I've got love on my side, now (Ah)
I've got nothing to hide, now (Ah)
And now life's a dream
