Singer Lana Del Rey is hoping to build on the success of her debut album, Born To Die and has finally announced that she is planning on releasing another album soon. She revealed at the premiere of the Tropico short film that the new album will be called Ultra-Violence.
Del Rey spoke to the crowd before screening the new 30-minute short and dropped a few hits about the new album, reports Rolling Stone. “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, Ultra-Violence,” the “Summertime Sadness” singer said.
She said that the title comes from Anthony Burgess’ novel A Clockwork Orange. However, she didn’t give any song titles away or say when the album would be released.
According to JustJared, the event was hosted at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood before a sold-out crowd. Co-star Shaun Ross also attended.
Del Rey has been cryptic in interviews when asked about her plans for a Born To Die follow-up. “When people ask me about it, I just have to be honest — I really don't know,” she told Nylon. “I don't want to say, 'Yeah, definitely — the next one's better than this one,' because I don't really hear a next one. My muse is very fickle. She only comes to me sometimes, which is annoying.”
Tropico features music from the Paradise Edition of Born to Die, which was originally released last year. It will be available online later today.
