Lana Del Rey‘s ULTRAVIOLENCE, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, is one of the most anticipated albums of the year. It doesn’t have an official release date as yet – you can expect it some time “next month” – but yesterday, the sleepy-voiced singer released the album’s track list, and it’s the most wonderfully Lana Del Rey thing ever.

The song titles ooze Lana’s particular type of bi-coastal bad girl glamour, and as usual, read like entries from a game of Mad Libs with Martin Scorsese. The list, which appeared on the singer’s Facebook page overnight, is as follows:

CRUEL WORLD

ULTRAVIOLENCE

SHADES OF COOL

BROOKLYN BABY

WEST COAST 
SAD GIRL

PRETTY WHEN YOU CRY

MONEY POWER GLORY

FUCKED MY WAY UP TO THE TOP

OLD MONEY

THE OTHER WOMAN

BLACK BEAUTY *
GUNS AND ROSES * 
FLORIDA KILOS *

* BONUS TRACKS

Oh boy. That guy on your Facebook feed who secretly hates women and has a lot of thoughts on the subject of Lana Del Rey and authenticity will have HEAPS of fun with ‘FUCKED MY WAY UP TO THE TOP’.

In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Dan Auerbach had nothing but praise for Del Rey, saying that he considers her to be “a true eccentric” and “extremely talented.” 

“Her demos were so good, her songs were so strong [that] I didn’t want to mess it up,” he told the magazine. “She sang live with a seven-piece band. That’s the whole record – a seven-piece band with her singing live. It was crazy.” 

Meanwhile, the full video for ‘West Coast’ was released yesterday, and sees Lana Del Rey cavorting on a beach in arty black-and-white, and smoking in slow motion.
