Lana Del Rey's (opens in new tab) new album drop is just around the bend, but that doesn't make the wait any less excruciating. Luckily, on the heels of her Kimye wedding performance (opens in new tab), the chanteuse is satiating our appetite with two new tracks, as well as a smoky noir promo video. The first song, "Shades of Cool," boasts her signature retro resonance. She collaborated with songwriter Rick Nowels on the on the bitter ballad singing: "My baby lives in shades of cool blue heart and hands and aptitude. He lives for love, for women, too."

The next single is the title track, "Ultraviolence," which is another Americana-inspired number sure to set hearts on fire.

Lastly, her 17-second Ultraviolence promotional video is as seductive as her icey croons.

Ultraviolence hits shelves on June 16.
