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.
