Listen to Lana Del Rey’s ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ from Mare of Easttown, Season 1, Ep. 2

American dream pop singer songwriter Lana Del Rey’s ‘Mariners Apartment Complex‘ was one of the songs featured on the new episode of the HBO drama Mare of Easttown last night — Mare of Easttown, Season 1, Episode 2, “Fathers“.

Lana Del Rey’s ‘Mariners Apartment Complex’ is from the artist’s sixth studio album Norman Fucking Rockwell.

Released in August, 2019 via Interscope Records and Polydor, the album spawned six singles, with ‘Mariners Apartment Complex‘ the lead single from the release.

The dreamy guitar-laden folk song, written by Del Rey and Jack Antonoff, premiered on BBC Radio One, followed by an official  music video filmed by Del Rey’s sister.

Del Rey says she wrote the song after being on a walk with a guy she was dating, and they stopped in from of an apartment complex where he then told her he knew they were together because they were “both messed up”.

The singer says she couldn’t understand that as she was happy, while he wasn’t, and so couldn’t relate to that being the real reason they were together.

Needless to say, the couple eventually broke up.

While not an enormous hit for Del Rey, the song went on to chart in 15 countries and on four different charts in the United States.

Listen to Lana Del Rey’s ‘Mariners Apartment Complex‘ in the song’s official music video and on her sixth studio album.

Mare of Easttown stars Kate Winslet, Julianne Nicholson, Jean Smart, Evan Peters, Guy Pearce and Angourie Rice, and is currently airing on HBO.
