Lana Del Rey is streaming her new song, "Brooklyn Baby," NME reports.

Click below to listen to the track, which comes from her forthcoming album "Ultraviolence," which is released in the UK on June 16.

Meanwhile, the singer recently made comments, saying feminism is "not an interesting concept." The comments came in an interview with the Fader, in which she discusses her new album. Asked about the way she portrays women in relationships in her music, Del Rey said: "For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities. Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, god. I'm just not really that interested ... My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants."

In the same interview, Del Rey also explained why she broke down in tears during a performance of "Video Games" in Dublin in May last year. She explained that she was suffering ill health and doubting her passion for performing.

Del Rey said: "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes. I thought it was sad. I thought my position was sad. I thought it was sad to be in Ireland singing for people who really cared when I wasn't sure if I did."

    Am I the only one who thinks this woman is completely overrated?

    No. Her voice isn't good at all, she has no charisma live and her songs while fairly decent all start to sound the same pretty quickly.

    Her voice is different from what's been filling the pop charts, and to a point, you're right: she doesn't do mediocre shows live, it only ranges between "great" and "terrible". Fortunately, the only time I saw her live, she was in a great day. There is definitely some media propaganda surrouding her (NME and Pitchfork come to mind), that doesn't exclude the fact that she's an incredibly talented singer and a great songwriter.

    She's trying to take an early 20th century voice and pass it off as their own, not many people today remember what those early voices sound like that.

    She may not technically be the best vocalist around but there's some kind of hypnotic quality to her voice and most of her material lulls me into an enjoyable melancholy state.

    Ultraviolence... hm did that devotchka watch Clockwork Orange? Maybe we'll hear some Bethoven in samples? Probably not...

    If you guys are tired of the 24/7 strip pop on radio, it's people like her you need to support. If she becomes the new 'thing' in the eyes of record companies, the mainstream will start nudging towards the better.

    I have to admit my petty thought process overcame me when I'd heard her backstory with the whole privileged manufactured rise, but I actually really like her music and have to say it has an emotional impact on me.

    I like this. I'm surprised it goes for nearly 6 minutes. Felt shorter. She's got a really cool old school sound. Born To Die, although a bit repetitive, was a really sweet album and Ultraviolet looks like it might be better
