RNR News and Notes

Lana Del Rey is the perfect choice for Matt Maeson's new version of 'Hallucinogenics' - listen

Back in 2018 - a guy in a skull cap showed up to the WRNR studios to do an in studio performance ... Matt Maeson - from VA Beach was on his first promo tour for his LP Bank on the Funeral and played us a few tracks.  One that really caught our ear was Hallucinogenics ... there was something hauntingly perfect about it



 ... and apparently we weren't the only fans -  Lana Del Rey invited Maeson onstage in 2019  to perform a duet of the track live.  




Hallucinogenics Feat. @lanadelrey is out now! Lana sent me a message on Instagram at random asking if I’d like to come play Hallucinogenics at one of her shows last year. I very eagerly agreed even tho I’m a super busy guy who does super busy things and it was a surreal experience to say the least. I was nervous af and the crowd started singing along and it was just an insane moment for me. I remember listening to Born To Die on repeat when it came out and her songwriting heavily influenced the writing I do today. When we asked her to hop on Hallucinogenics with me she was into it and bang bang we got a duet! An absolute dream come true. Thank you so much Lana ????????????????????????

Lucky for us - someone was wise enough to recognize that this pair on this track was the right formula - and we now have the official remix featuring both singers.
