CURRENT: Lana Del Rey – “Shades of Cool”

The promotional cycle for Ultraviolence, the new studio LP from Lana Del Rey, is heating up. After the release of “West Coast” a month ago, here comes the first promo single from the album, “Shades of Cool”. The song refreshingly adds to Del Rey’s signature sound, exchanging the canned hip-hop flourishes of Born to Die for a psychedelic rock hue, complete with an unexpected and pretty awesome guitar solo. Lyrically, Del Rey continues to explore romantic themes, and her vocals are a delight, especially the way they soar during that shimmering chorus.

Ultraviolence is out 13 June via Interscope in the U.S.
