Lana Del Rey Releases ‘Ultraviolence’ Title Track [LISTEN]

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Lana Del Rey has released the title track off her forthcoming album, ‘Ultraviolence,’ which will be released on June 13. The song was co-written by Del Rey and Daniel Heath.

The song is a melancholic indie rock tune with an ambient and moody tune. She sings about a guy named Jim and describes him as a “cult leader.” “Cause I’m your jazz singer / And you’re my cult leader / I love you forever / I really love you forever.”

The lyrics portray that of a complicated love story between Lana and Jim. “He used to call me poison / Cause I was poison ivy / I could have died right there / Cause Jim was right beside me / Jim raised me up / He hurt me but it felt like true love.”

In an interview with the BBC last year, Del Rey described the album as being “a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark.” In the tracks that Del Rey has released so far, including ‘Ultraviolence,’ ‘Shades of Cool,’ and ‘West Coast,’ she’s varied the sound and tempo of each track but still maintaining that Lana Del Rey stamp.
