Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated recording artist Lana Del Rey released her eagerly awaited new track “West Coast,” the first cut from her forthcoming album Ultraviolence (Interscope/Polydor UK).
Written by Lana and Rick Nowels, "West Coast" was recorded in Nashville and produced by Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys.
Commenting on “West Coast” and Ultraviolence Lana explains, "The record is finished and it's beautiful - it's so wrong and exquisite. It is absolutely gorgeous - darker than the first.”
Lana kicked off her sold-out North American tour this weekend, playing Las Vegas on Friday and Coachella last night, with dates in Miami, New Orleans, Nashville, San Francisco, Montreal, Vancouver, and more to follow. She will also perform at festivals around the world, including Rock En Seine, Vida, Bravella, Bergenfest, and Glastonbury.
Lana captivated the world with her debut single “Video Games.” Her debut album Born To Die went platinum in the US and she has sold over 6 million albums and 12 million singles globally, including her release “Young and Beautiful” taken from the soundtrack of the hit movie The Great Gatsby, her massive worldwide hit “Summertime Sadness” and her haunting version of “Once Upon a Dream” taken from Disney’s Maleficent, in theatres May 30.
