Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” Is Another Sad, Depressing And Utterly Beautiful Gem: Listen

053907565c6e360c202e619b7a03bfc0 Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” Is Another Sad, Depressing And Utterly Beautiful Gem: Listen

Lana Del Rey‘s “Ultraviolence” had its world premiere on BBC Radio 1 today (June 4) and was subsequently uploaded to the 27-year-old’s VEVO account. It has been part of the gloomy diva’s set for much of her North American tour but the studio version is considerably better than the already promising live performances would suggest.

Co-written with Dan Heath, the title track of Lana’s imminent sophomore LP is a brooding ballad about a destructive and all-consuming relationship. “I can hear sirens,” she sings over melancholy piano and hazy guitars. “He hit me and it felt like a kiss.” As the sprawling song unfolds, strings enter the mix and the Fader cover girl delivers a spoken-word interlude that includes the memorable lyric: “I’m your jazz singer and you’re my cult leader, I love you forever”. It’s dark, delicate and very beautiful. Listen to another killer cut from Ultraviolence after the jump.
