Lana Del Rey has accidentally let slip the release date for her new album "Ultraviolence," NME reports.

The "Video Games" singer was stopped by fans in a US street to sign autographs and was asked about her new album. Del Rey then blurted out the May 1 release date before attempting to backtrack. It was all captured on camera, which you can watch below.

Speaking about the new record, she added: "It's so good that it made me forget about the last record. I'm in love with it. I have that romantic feeling about it."

Del Rey revealed that her second album will be titled "Ultraviolence" at the launch event for her short film "Tropico" last year. Appearing onstage at a screening of "Tropico" at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome, Del Rey told fans: "I really just wanted us all to be together so I could visually close the chapter before I release my new album, 'Ultraviolence.'"

Last month, Lana Del Rey revealed new song "Once Upon A Dream," the theme song from the soundtrack to the new Disney film "Maleficient." The song can be heard above and downloaded for free via Google Play.

    This honestly comes as a surprise to me. I’m really glad to hear that she is releasing new material because I had read somewhere that she wasn’t planning to after Born to Die. I’m pretty excited about this. Not to compare her to other pop artist, but really enjoy Lana’s music than all the other techno dance stuff out there that’s topping the charts.
    Summertime Sadness was amazing until that one guy decided he could make a million bucks remixing said song coupled with b96.3 replaying the remix over and over.
    My thoughts exactly. Also, I'm positively surprised that there isn't any bashing here (not that anyone wouldn't want to bash that ), Lana is a fantastic singer.
