Lana Del Rey – “Ultraviolence”
We’ve already heard two full tracks from Lana Del Rey’s upcoming Ultraviolence — “West Coast” and “Shades Of Cool” — as well as a snippet of “Brooklyn Baby” and a live version of the title track. Now, La Lana has given us the studio version of that last one, in which she conflates the ultra-creepy 1962 Phil Spector-produced Crystals hit “He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)” with the ultra-creepy 1962 Anthony Burgess novel A Clockwork Orange. 1962, man. Weird time. Listen to LDR’s update of the era below.
Ultraviolence is out 6/13 on Interscope. The alternate album cover above is for Urban Outfitters’ exclusive vinyl.
