Lana Del Rey leaks were practically a weekly event back in July, but those of you set to drooling over possibly new demos or Gaga-dissing throw-away tracks were left wanting in August — until now. It seems someone has found yet another LDR demo and like the last batch, which featured a few of her Lizzie Grant-era tunes, it sure ain't pretty, though it's way more polished. Over a "Walk This Way" ripoff beat, "True Love on the Side" conjures up memories of the more rock-oriented songs pop acts like the Spice Girls and Christina Aguilera have attempted over the years. Cheesy vocal gymnastics and monotone-whisper interludes abound. Like all of the other Lana leaks, there's no information as to how this one was unearthed — if it is indeed legitimate — but it's probably for the best if it gets buried again before it multiplies.
