Lana Del Rey debuted her short film, "Tropico," this week, and made a major announcement at the premiere. After months of anticipation, Del Rey revealed that she will release a new album called "Ultra-Violence."
The only detail Del Rey divulged on the upcoming project is the title. No word as of yet as to when fans can expect "Ultra-Violence." She made the album title public before the screening of "Tropico" at its Hollywood premiere. "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,'" Del Rey told the audience.
This summer, multiple songs from the 27-year-old singer leaked, with one in particular making major waves. In August a track called "So Legit" hit the web, dissing Lady Gaga in the lyrics.
Del Rey was asked about the progress of her album after the leaks, telling Nylon, "When people ask me about it, I just have to be honest, I really don't know. 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."
