Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence’ Promo Begins, Rumors Swirl About “West Coast” Release Date

By: Mike Wass / April 8, 2014

The second coming of Lana Del Rey is almost upon us. Posters for the gloomy diva’s crazily-anticipated sophomore set Ultraviolence went up around Brooklyn, New York today (April 8), which would fit in with the LP’s alleged May 1 release date. More excitingly, usually reliable LDR fan accounts are tweeting that new single “West Coast” could hit iTunes as early as tonight.

While those rumors have not been confirmed by the 27-year-old’s record label, new music can’t be too far away. Lana is performing at Coachella this weekend (and next) before kicking off her 2014 North American tour in Texas on April 24. It makes sense that she would use these promo opportunities to introduce fans to Ultraviolence. Right?

When will “West Coast” actually be released? Place your bets in the comments below.
