The Inquisitr previously reported that Del Rey is preparing to unleash a new batch of tunes in the coming weeks. If all goes according to the singer’s master plan, then the record should hit retail shelves on May 1.
Idolator reports that Lana is keeping details about the project under wraps for the moment. Although a tune from Ultraviolence recently appeared online, Del Rey isn’t saying too much about her latest effort at the moment.
“It’s so good that it made me forget about the last record. I’m in love with it, there’s something about it,” she recently explained.
While it’s difficult to find any concrete information about the upcoming album anywhere online at the moment, Lana Del Rey reportedly tapped The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach to help out with some of the tunes.

Auerbach infamous said of Del Rey’s longevity:
“On some level, we’ve seen that Lana Del Rey thing since we first started, like, all of a sudden this new band would be headlining festivals, and we’re like, ‘Wait, how did they get that? We’ve been here for two, three, four, five years and we’re still working our way up. But then they’re gone. Just as quickly as they get up there, they disappear.”
