Lana Del Rey‘s new album now has a release month. “We’ll have a new record in September, and we hope you like it,” she said during her May 22 concert at the Sleep Country Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington.

Del Rey is talking about her third album Honeymoon, where she returns to the “noirish” feel of her 2012 debut Born to Die and follow-up EP Paradise. To show what she means, she revealed the title track lyrics (“There are violets in your eyes / There are guns that blaze around you / There are roses in between my thighs / And a fire that surrounds you”) in booklets for sale at her Endless Summer tour.

Del Rey’s Ultraviolence became her first No. 1 album upon its June 2014 release. It sold 182,000 copies during its first week, making for the largest debut sales week for a female artist since Beyonce‘s 2013 self-titled album.
