Lana Del Rey Announces New Album 'Ultraviolence', Goes Topless in Short Film 'Tropico'


In her 27-minute Anthony Mandler-directed video, the 'Summertime Sadness' singer plays Eve who transforms herself into a stripper after being thrown out of the Garden of Eden.

Lana Del Rey has unveiled the title of her new album. During the premiere of her short film "Tropico" on Thursday, December 5 at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, the 27-year-old singer revealed that the follow-up to her 2012's "Born to Die" would be called "Ultraviolence".

The phrase appears in Anthony Burgess' classic 1962 dystopian novella, "A Clockwork Orange". "I really just wanted us all to be together so I could try and visually close out my chapter before I release the new record, Ultraviolence," Del Rey told the crowd who attended the screening of her 27-minute film. Other than the title, she didn't share more details about the album.

As for "Tropico," the Anthony Mandler-directed video opens with the appearances from John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Jesus and a unicorn in the Garden of Eden. As Del Rey's "Body Electric" plays, the clip then centers around the songstress and her on-screen love interest played by model Shaun Ross.

During second song "Gods and Monsters", the video flashes forward to a modern-day setting in which Del Rey's an exotic dancer at a strip club where she's joined by several other scantily-clad twerking women. Meanwhile, Ross who works as a clerk at a convenience store plans a robbery with his gang.

He's later seen leading his gang to rob a group of businessmen who's having a party with Del Rey and some of her stripper friends. Following the heist, Ross and his girlfriend cleanse themselves from their sins, cruise into a golden field as she sings her "Bel Air". The clip concludes with the couple ascending to heaven while a cover of Presley's "Always on My Mind" plays.
