Now even Lana Del Rey announces a new album?

Seriously, I'm naming this week the official 'New Album Announcement Week': first Band of Skulls, then , and now even Lana Del Rey has said words about a forthcoming album. Well, to be honest, the only thing she did reveal was the album title Ultraviolence but that's more than nothing at all and hey, at least it's now confirmed that the Tropico film project will not be marking an end to her music career, but rather just serve as an end of an era. This was obviously suggested by the various leaked demos, too, but it's always nice to have something concrete to hold on to.

The album title was revealed by Lana herself at the premier of her short film Tropico, where she said the following words: "I really just wanted us all to be together so I could try and visually close out my chapter before I release the new record 'Ultraviolence'". Check out the Instagram video below for evidence! Furthermore, according to Twitter user Lana Del Rey News, she also confirmed the album title in a Youtube comment of which the user shared the following screen capture:

The term 'ultraviolence' - meaning excessive, unjustified violence - comes from the 1962 dystopia classic A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Perhaps the new record will be a concept album of some sort? Who knows, there's only so much you can predict from an album title alone. But there you have it: more's on the way!
