On Wednesday, Lana Del Rey surprised fans with the track "Lust for Life," and she brought along The Weeknd to croon with her on the duet. The new song will be the title track of her forthcoming album, which currently has no release date. 

Del Rey shared a simple visual of both artists sitting on top of the Hollywood sign to accompany the song's release. Listen to the official audio below:

Del Rey told Courtney Love in the latest issue of Dazed that she and The Weeknd have collaborated in the past:

Maybe that's kind of weird to have a feature on the title track, but I really love that song and we had said for a while that we were gonna do something; I did stuff on his last two records.

Here is every verse from Del Rey's latest effort "Lust for Life," via Genius

[Verse 1: Lana Del Rey]
Climb up the H
Of the Hollywood sign, yeah
In these stolen moments
The world is mine (do it, do it)
There's nobody here
Just us together (shut up, shut up)
Keepin' me hot
Like July forever

[Refrain: Lana Del Rey]
'Cause we're the masters of our own fate
We're the captains of our own souls
There's no way for us to come away
'Cause boy we're gold, boy we're gold
And I was like

[Pre-Chorus: Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes
They say only the good die young
That just ain't right
'Cause we're having too much fun
Too much fun tonight, yeah

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive

[Verse 2: Lana Del Rey, Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
Then, we dance on the H
Of the Hollywood sign, yeah
Till we run out of breath
Gotta dance till we die (duwop, duwop)
My boyfriend's back
And he's cooler than ever (shuwop, shuwop)
There's no more night
Blue skies forever

[Refain: The Weeknd]
'Cause we're the masters of our own fate
We're the captains of our own souls
So there's no need for us to hesitate
We're all alone, let's take control
And I was like

[Pre-Chorus: The Weeknd & Lana Del Rey]
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes
They say only the good die young
That just ain't right
'Cause we're having too much fun
Too much fun tonight, yeah

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive

[Bridge: Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
My boyfriend's back
And he's cooler than ever
There's no more night
Blue skies forever
I told you twice
In our love letter
There's no stopping now
Green lights forever
And I was like

[Pre-Chorus: Lana Del Rey]
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd]
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
And a lust for life, and a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
