Lana Del Rey announces release date of new album ‘Ultraviolence’

By Julianne Mosher,

Lana Del Rey accidentally slipped a huge secret to fans this week, the release date of her new and highly anticipated album.

According to The Huffington Post, the 27-year-old singer and songwriter revealed in a fan’s video that her third studio album, Ultraviolence, will be coming out on May 1.

On Saturday, a YouTube video (below) surfaced that featured a fan asking her when the album should be released. She responded with, “It’s coming out soon” before she then lets slip the due date.

After realizing what she did and that her conversation was being recorded, she quickly and slyly added, “… I think.”

Lana has kept a low profile about the new album, but did reveal its name back in December at the premiere of her short film, Tropico.

The star, who usually keeps a low celebrity profile, states that it feels good to release something different than her previous albums, Born to Die and Paradise.

She says in the online fan video, “It’s so good that it made me forget about the last record. I’m in love with it… I have that romantic feeling about it.”

Recently, Lana released the single for her cover version of Disney’s “Once Upon a Dream,” a song featured in Angelina Jolie's newest film, Maleficent.
