In 2015, NightBird Studios shared a note from Del Rey on their Twitter. She mentions how she loved recording "Unidentified Flying Bill" in their studio.[1]

The song's title was mentioned by a leaker on June 15, 2020. The song was originally speculated to have been recorded in 2011, but was later confirmed to have been recorded in 2013.

A 6-second snippet of the song leaked on October 16, 2020 under the title "This Year's Girl," though this title was later confirmed to be incorrect. The title "Slow Burn" was also rumored, though this was also debunked. The snippet was confirmed to be from "Unidentified Flying Bill" on October 26. A slightly longer version of the previously leaked snippet leaked on November 25, and another snippet leaked the following day.

A snippet of the song's intro leaked on April 1, 2021 which was followed by two more snippets leaking on July 7. The full song leaked on October 1.

Lyrics[]

Mmmm

Bill takes me down to the beach
In the coat that he got from his father
He whispers to me that sometimes
He thinks he sees things over the water
Like maybe UFOs or something
Flying in the air
Well, I don't know about those, Bill
But I don't care

Slow burn, I'm hot like a fire
I'm sober but you're getting higher
Life is so crazy, I can't take it
But at least we've got the night

We still got tonight

Bill takes me down to the beach
In East Hampton and walks on the water
Says "They don't know it yet
But I'm the second coming of The Father"
And he keeps on fishing
Tryna turn one into twenty
He's turnin' the ocean into wine for the summertime

Slow burn, I'm hot like a fire
I'm sober but you're getting higher
Life is so crazy, I can't take it
But at least we've got tonight

We still got tonight
We still got tonight
We still got tonight

Tell it to me
Tell me I'm wrong
Come to me
Come to me
Tell me I'm wrong
Come to me
Save me, now
Tell me I'm wrong
(Tell me I'm wrong)
Ohh

Slow burn, I'm hot like a fire
I'm sober but you're still getting higher
Life is so crazy, I can't take it
But at least we've got the night

We still got the night
