Listen to Lana Del Rey’s Solemn, Strings-Heavy New Song ‘Ultraviolence’

Lana Del Rey has had a steady stream of content from Ultraviolence, her upcoming third studio album, hitting the Internet, with a live version of the record’s title track debuting late last month.

Now, she’s followed suit with the studio version of “Ultraviolence,” out on her YouTube page today (June 4).

While multiple songs from Ultraviolence, including lead single “West Coast,” have ventured a few paces from the Del Rey style found on her first two albums, often adding guitar in the mix, “Ultraviolence” retains the theme but also ups the lilting, low-tempo, strings-heavy form for which the singer was originally known.

“‘Cause I was filled with poison / But blessed with beauty and rage,” Del Rey sings on the first verse amid occasional piano. Her multi-layered, ethereal vocal that tends to permeate many of her songs joins in just in time for the chorus, which meshes strings with drums and delicately strummed guitar.
