Lana Del Rey shared the newest tune off her upcoming record "Ultraviolence
," Consequence of Sound
reports. The album, produced by the Black Keys
' Dan Auerbach
, will be released on June 13.
"Shades of Cool
" sees Del Rey reunite with songwriter Rick Nowels
, who co-wrote both the "Young and Beautiful
" and "Summertime Sadness
." Unlike its '80-inspired predecessor "West Coast
," "Shades of Cool" is a slow and slightly gloomy ballad marked by reverberated guitars, slight atmospherics, and Del Rey's vocals that alternate between a hushed whisper and ephemeral wailing. It definitely harks back to 2012's "Born to Die," but there's also a bit more grace and sophistication going on. Also, more raw and less produced sound.
