“Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind” is a song that makes allusion to Lana attending Coachella, remembering the freedom and excitement of the 1969 rock music festival Woodstock, but also realizing the difficult situations the world is facing right now.
Concerned about the future generations Lana tries to give hope by standing and speaking about it. She acknowledges that her contribution might not be the biggest but it will spread and make a change. The song features a political background which Lana has shown a great interest in.
I’m not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount. I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run.
On her way home after leaving the music festival, Lana decided to stop off in the woods to write the song. Which she subsequently shared via Instagram, singing it acapella while surrounded by the trees.
The song was released as third single of Lana’s fifth studio album on May 15th, 2017.
