Released from her Facebook page, Lana Del Rey exposed the track list from her up and coming album Ultraviolence along side the album cover artwork.
The post also managed to omit the released date of the album, leaving us to anticipate very vaguely for sometime next month
The track list oozes Del Rey’s stylistic retro glam essence and promises to deliver everything we could possibly want from the Queen of retro pop and wonderfully weird visuals to match.
Track list is as follows:
SHADES OF COOL
PRETTY WHEN YOU CRY
MONEY POWER GLORY
FUCKED MY WAY UP TO THE TOP
THE OTHER WOMAN
BLACK BEAUTY *
GUNS AND ROSES *
FLORIDA KILOS *
* BONUS TRACKS
In a recent interview with the Sydney Morning Heralds’, Kirsten Tranter, Del Rey reveals: “I’m not a provocateur. I love to write. The written word is one of the last forms of magic we have. I love rhyming and writing. For years my focus was on building a beautiful visual world and beautiful sonic world and yeah, having such a strong reaction was … surprising? I don’t know.”
She says that while ‘Authenticity’ is an issue that her critics obsess over, she doesn’t really feel that way: “I’m a very independent agent. I run my own show, it’s my world. There’s never that many talks about, you know, ‘When you go on tour, what are you going to look like?’ because they know it’s going to be as it is – I’ll put a dress on, I’ll do my hair. My public perception is different from my personal life, which is a very easy, natural way of going about things.”
While her ability to fall in love with her own work allows Del Rey to produce such exuberant and wonderfully-weird performances, her hint of normalcy proves she really is one of the most provocative performers around today.
And while you desperately await with a mind-boggling level of anticipation for Del Rey to drop Ultravilence, enjoy her latest single, West Coast
