Matt Maeson is having one hell of a year. 2019 saw the emotionally-gripping singer-songwriter from the Chesapeake Bay release his acclaimed debut album, Bank On The Funeral, make his late-night television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and head out on his Ones To Watch - headlining tour. Yet, what just happened in Oklahoma City may be his crowning achievement to date.
The one and only Lana Del Rey invited our favorite heartbreaking songwriter to perform a special rendition of his hit single "Hallucinogenics" during her sold-out show in Oklahoma City. The result is nothing short of a magical collaboration we didn't quite know we needed until now. Punctuated by both Lana and fans singing along to Maeson's heart-rending lyrics and diehards screaming, "I love you Lana" at the top of their lungs, this is the version of "Hallucinogenics" we so desperately needed.
Watch Lana Del Rey and Matt Maeson perform "Hallucinogenics" below:

6 years ago I lived in a trailer with a guy named Cliffy. I wasn't on the lease and the landlord found out I was staying there, showed up with three cops and they forced me to pack whatever I could in my backpack and said I couldn't come back on the property. I literally packed a 6 pack of beer, some weed and my guitar and I walked 20 miles to a shitty motel. On that walk I listened to "Born To Die" by @lanadelrey on repeat. Yesterday, I got to get up on stage and perform one of my songs with her. You can see how this is surreal for me.
