Down on the West Coast, they got a sayin’ — but there’s no time for that right now. We’ve got to talk about Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence album cover, which the reigning queen of sway-pop confirmed via Twitter on Friday (May 9), following a reported leak from Universal Music Group’s intranet.
Clad in a semi-transparent, white V-neck tee, the “West Coast” singer’s gaze will pierce you right to the shallow, shallow depths of your unsalvageable soul. The visual is so powerful — arresting, even! I can almost hear her voice echoing faintly in my head, as she scathingly mutters: “I told you it was coming, you little bitch.”
This news comes on the heels of the Ultraviolence track list, which was revealed on Thursday. No release date has been set, but as they say on the West Coast. … Actually, wait, I don’t think they have any sayings about Lana’s release date. There or anywhere. That would be weird.
