If there's anything that could make my day, that would be new Lana Del Rey. She's been teasing for some months now, but after her Coachella performance this weekend, Lana has now unveiled the first official audio from the Ultraviolence project. And in timely fashion too, with CHVRCHES and Ellie Goulding quietening down on the material front, it's the perfect time to turn my fanboy attention elsewhere. "West Coast" is the name of the new single and it's extraordinary. It comes with the same vocal breeze and suppressed expression that we've loved her for, but with an added dimension of power in the production — whether it's the heavier, rawer instruments I don't know — but it's fantastic and I'm ready to fall in love with her all over again. That tempo change is tingling. I can't wait for more, though for the time being you know I will be abusing that repeat button.
