Lana Del Rey Releases Title Track From Upcoming Album

Dream pop sensation Lana Del Rey has been gearing up for the release of her new album, ‘Ultraviolence,’ by releasing a few songs here and there. She’s just released the title track from the album.

It’s sort of a restructuring of the Crystals’ 1963 song ’He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss).’ If the title of that song makes you uncomfortable, don’t sweat it. It made people uncomfortable even back in the ’60s when it was released.

Del Rey added a sung “ultraviolence” during the chorus, making it (we’re assuming) satirical. But in a recent interview with the Fader, the singer made a few comments that may or may not be taken as contradictory to the notion that this song is indeed satirical.

Give it a listen above and judge for yourself.

Del Rey doesn’t seem too interested in feminism, or at least talking about feminism. “Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, God,” she said. “I’m just not really that interested.”

When pressed to further explain, she talked about her concept of feminism: “My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants.” The subject of violence came up, as well. She responded to a question about her being choked in her music videos by saying, “I like a little hardcore love.”

The new album comes out on June 17. Here’s the video for ‘West Coast’ to tide you over:
