Lana Del Rey 'Watercolor Eyes': HBO's ‘Euphoria’ OST single proves singer's genius
Though Lana Del Rey is not active on social media, the song was released on Lana’s official YouTube channel and other streaming platforms
While the fans are already enjoying season two of HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ starring Zendaya in the lead, their excitement knew no bounds when they got to know about a single from Lana Del Rey will be featured on the third episode of the show that is scheduled to be aired on Sunday, January 23. The track helped hype the series after fans saw the song's teaser in the second episode. The ‘Summertime Sadness’ hitmaker’s new single for the award-winning drama series has been titled ‘Watercolor Eyes’.
Though the Grammy-nominated crooner is not active on social media, the song was released on Lana’s official YouTube channel. The brand new Friday release was also up on streaming platforms like Spotify. Lana Del Rey’s new single is her first release of 2022 and comes after she dropped two critically and commercially acclaimed albums namely ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’ and ‘Blue Banisters’ in 2021. Music lovers soon rushed to Twitter to dub her as the "queen" of alternative music while praising the song.

Lana Del Rey's 'Watercolor Eyes' on 'Euphoria' OST
Lana Del Rey’s 'Watercolor Eyes' was recorded as a part of the soundtrack of ‘Euphoria’. The track was rumored to drop on streaming platforms on January 10 but that did not materialize. And now, we have a new confirmed release date. The new single sees Lana taking the folk approach with slower sounds and smooth melodies. Speaking of the lyrics, in the song, the 36-year-old songstress croons, “I think that you taste like rock candy/ Sweet like beaches, leave me all sandy/ Why do you leave me with watercolor eyes?/Young love don't always lasts forever/ Wild horses can't keep us together/.”
Channeling the vintage era, Lana further sings, “So what if you taste just like heaven?/ That don't make it right/ Hot summer and cold watermelon/ Your love stings like blood and a lemon/ Why do you leave me with watercolor eyеs?” The lyrics “Rock Candy Sweet” might also refer to one of the albums the singer had earlier teased. However, the project never saw the light of the day. Speaking of ‘Euphoria’ OST for Season 2, a few songs have already been released, and the official tracklist is expected to hit the Internet in the last week of February.
