Listen to Lana Del Rey’s New ‘Ultraviolence’ Tease, ‘Brooklyn Baby’

By Scott T. Sterling

When it comes to new music from her upcoming album, Ultraviolence, Lana Del Rey is being something of a tease.

The “Young and Beautiful” singer has released a quick 36-second snippet of album track, “Brooklyn Baby,” on her official YouTube account, where she also provides one of the song’s lyrical couplets: “My boyfriend’s in the band, he plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed. I got feathers in my hair, I get down to poetry. I’m a Brooklyn Baby.”

The moody, reverb-heavy snippet reveals Del Rey crooning amidst stark guitars and a mournful snare drum beat that plays like something from an ’80s David Lynch soundtrack.

The song is supposed to be onĀ Ultraviolence‘s standard edition as the fourth track, sandwiched between the previously released “Shades of Cool” and “West Coast.”

It’s the latest reveal from her full-length that’s set to hit retailers on June 17. Del Rey recently released another song from the album, “Shade of Cool,” as well as debuting the title track during a concert in Vancouver, Canada.

The singer was also recently part of the much-ballyhooed marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, with Del Rey performing for the couple during a special event at the Palace of Versailles in Paris.
