Lana Del Rey Teases New Song 'Brooklyn Baby'
The preview was posted on her official YouTube account, where she also provides one of the song's lyrical couplets: "My boyfriend's in the band, he plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed. I got feathers in my hair, I get down to poetry. I'm a Brooklyn Baby."
The moody, reverb-heavy snippet reveals Del Rey crooning amidst stark guitars and a mournful snare drum beat that plays like something from an '80s David Lynch soundtrack.
The song is supposed to be on Ultraviolence's standard edition as the fourth track, sandwiched between the previously released "Shades of Cool" and "West Coast."
It's the latest reveal from her full-length that's set to hit retailers on June 17. Del Rey recently released another song from the album, "Shade of Cool," as well as debuting the title track during a concert in Vancouver, Canada.
