The singer is coming with a new album soon.
We really didn't have to wait long for Lana Del Rey's accompanying video for new single 'Love', which came out over the weekend. The video dropped yesterday (February 20th 2017), after the singer announced that it was on the way via an Instagram video stream.

The video starts off in black and white, with Lana singing away with flowers in her hair before coloured images of various couples hanging with their friends appear, all in full vintage gear. Then things transcend into the supernatural as all characters in the visual explore outer space.

Andrew Lockwood picks his favourite albums of 2015.
10. Belle & Sebastian - 'Girls In Peacetime'.
A glorious return to top form for Belle & Sebastian. 'Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance' contains all the bands trade mark signatures as well as introducing a few new ones. The generally up beat, playful tone of the album is full of pathos, dark humour and heartfelt musings. This is Belle & Sebastian back to their creative best. With an arty intellect and a wry take on life they have combined some of their most varied musical scores to date with more of their joyous lyrics.
9. Girl Band - 'Holding Hands With Jamie'.
A wake up call that needs to be heard. 'Holding Hands With Jamie' is a shot in the arm; a torrent of musical mayhem and magnificent noise. Distorted and unrelenting, 'Holding Hands..' is an unapologetic onslaught to the senses and a nerve tingling jolt of excitement. A quite brilliant debut.

We thought we'd dedicate this week's round-up to the celebrities who may want to lay low for a while.
Lana Del Rollercoaster: Lana Del Rey has had a week she'll never forget. The pop star's new album, Ultraviolence, has been met with positivity by critics and has earned Del Rey her first Billboard 200 number one. However, the singer's album publicity has risked being blighted by certain comments Lana made in a recent interview in which she appears to glamorise the troubling trend of musicians dying young. Decide for yourself here. Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, lashed out at Lana over her words. Find out what went down.
Gary Oldman Blunder: Silly, silly Gary Oldman. The actor has earned himself a reputation as one of Hollywood's thinkers but his thoughts on political correctness caused a stir this week. In a Playboy interview, the 56 year-old referenced Mel Gibson's infamous 2006 run-in with the police where he voiced an anti-Semitic view. In an attempt to play down Gibson's words, Oldman ended up sounding an awful lot more anti-Semitic than his fellow actor. Find out what was said. Oldman did release an apology, which can be read here.
Her album's success hasn't been tainted by a little negative press recently.
Lana Del Rey has managed to land her first album to top the Billboard 200 with her new release, Ultraviolence. The follow-up to 2012's well-received Born To Die, the album, which was released June 17, sold 182,000 in the week ending June 22, according to Nielsen SoundScan, via Billboard.
The figure represents her best sales week yet and also the largest sales week for a female artist since the week ending Dec. 29, 2013, when Beyonce's self-titled a surprise release shifted 310,000 copies in its third week in the charts.
Although Born To Die was a commercial and critical success that put Del Rey firmly on the pop map, the highest position it could manage in the chart was second with 77,000 sold in its first week ending 5th February 2012. However, the album has since proven its longevity by surpassing one million sales as of February this year.

The Scottish musician refuses to admit his romance with Lana has ended. "It's not over, it's not over, don't believe what you read ," he adamantly says.
The 28 year-old singer confessed to have separated from Barrie James O'Neill, whom she dated for three years, when speaking in an interview with Switzerland's 20 Minuten newspaper.
Lana called time on their turbulent romance because she apparently wants time apart to feel ''free''.

Unlike her first record as Lana Del Rey, "Ultraviolence" is doing great with the critics so far
Lana Del Rey’s sophomore album (post-transformation, that is), Ultraviolence, is finally out after some questionable promotional tactics. The album is now up for the top spot in the iTunes chart and LDR has her work cut out for her in competing with Sam Smith’s debut record In The Lonely Hour.
Lana Del Rey returns as a perfectly crafted drama queen in Ultraviolence.
Besides her competition, Del Rey is up against some unfortunate odds; her previous album, Born to Die, was panned by just about every critic in the Western Hemisphere and a good chunk of the hipster crowd.

In the wake of her success, Del Rey admits that she isn't nearly as happy as everyone thinks she is.
To some, the life of a pop star on the rise might seem like the dream – Lana Del Rey is not one of those people. The singer, best known for her song Video Games, as well Young and Beautiful, off the soundtrack to last year’s The Great Gatsby adaptation, is just about to release her sophomore studio effort, Ultraviolence. Before we go any further into the story, this is probably a good time to insert a massive trigger warning for mentions of suicidal thoughts and depression.
Lana Del Rey revealed a much darker side of her life and personality in a recent interview.
She is currently doing a the press rounds, as you do, but her depressing Guardian interview borders on disturbing.
Rumours are flying, invites are secretive and every media outlet under the sun appears to have different information about the upcoming nuptials of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. So what do we actually know about the Kimye wedding?
Not very much actually. We’re vaguely aware Kanye West will be marrying Kim Kardashian sometime this month but that’s about as far as it goes. The rumour mill has been working overtime meaning the event is clouded in an air of secrecy, quite an impressive feat for a family who broadcast their lives on national television!
Kimye are not releasing any details of the wedding.
Here’s what we know so far:
The album cover and release date are out. Let the hype begin.
Lana Del Rey’s upcoming album hasn’t really matched the buzz of her debut record so far. Things might be about to change, however, with the reveal of the cover art for Ultraviolence. Along with the cover – a black and white shot of the singer looking as pouty as we remember – the album release date was announced for June 16.

With great food, a healthy atmosphere and a short but 'sweet' line-up, Sweetlife 2014 is not worth missing.
Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!

Award-nominated actors work through Super Bowl weekend, as Night at the Museum 3 takes to the streets of London, which also features in the A Long Way Down trailer. And we get glimpses of Owen's Blood Ties, more Rio action, a sinister Oculus and an eerie Maleficent theme song...
In the lull between big awards shows, media attention turns to Super Bowl halftime performances and adverts, while award-nominated actors and filmmakers travel around the world to squeeze in their next projects before Bafta and Oscar nights. Judi Dench is in India filming The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 with the reunited cast from the original. Chiewtel Ejiofor is in New Zealand filming something top-secret. Cate Blanchett is taking a well-deserved holiday. Meanwhile, Ben Stiller and Robin Williams have been snapped on the streets of rain-swept London filming scenes for Night at the Museum 3. We braved the British weather to snap the filming in action.
We got our first glimpse of the comedy-drama A Long Way Down this week, with a new trailer that plays up the film's black humour and warm emotion. Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots play four people who meet as they're planning to end it all by leaping from a London skyscraper. In the media circus that follows, they make a pact to live for at least one more month. It looks funny and rather sweet, with the terrific cast on great form. It's out in March. Watch 'A Long Way Down' Trailer here.

Beyonce models various bikinis and beachwear in her campaign for H&M.
Summer is almost upon us, and Beyonce is making sure we all know it. The R&B superstar recently signed up to be the face of high-street store H&M and the brand has released the first images from Bey's new summer campaign. The singer models an array of bikinis and beachwear, which will no doubt fly off the shelves following its release in May.

Beyonce, who launches her Mrs Carter tour in Serbia this week, appears to be the perfect match for the Swedish retailer. "What makes these [H&M] pieces even more special is that Beyoncé herself had input into the design, and they are full of her own personal style," Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of design at H&M, told The Telegraph. The print shows were shot by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, while an upcoming commercial was helmed by Jonas Akerlunda and features a brand new Beyonce track "Standing on the Sun."

When Mumford & Sons performed at the iTunes Festival, they probably didn't expect some of the U.K's biggest stars to attend, but that's exactly what happened according to The Sun.
Adele, Chris Martin, Simon Pegg and Emma Watson were all in attendance as the folk-pop quartet bashed out tunes from their latest album, Babel. Company indeed! "We've been all around and now we're home, it feels so good," said Frontman Marcus Mumford. "This is our album launch party, celebrate with us." The band have been touring for years now, and experienced some tough times in some of the far corners of the earth, so they'll be glad to be playing in front of home crowds again. A review of their Roundhouse gig in The Telegraph says: "The show's highlights were when the band loosened their grip on the anthemic jugular. A shimmering Timshel was played unplugged, and the band displayed an enviable mastery of the crowd, who fell deathly silent." Their new album, Babel, which the band describes as "an advert for our live shows" has received mixed reviews, to put it lightly. The Guardian gave their follow up to the incredibly popular debut album, Sign No More, 2 stars. But over in America, where the band is making significant inroads, The Huffington Post described it as "a joy".
Lana Del Rey’s latest single ‘Ride,’ has made its way online. The track is taken from the ‘deluxe’ edition of her debut album, ‘Born To Die.’ Never one to be deterred by constant criticism, Lana is pushing her album once more and this time, there are eight new tracks for fans to listen to. Since she hit the big time with her track ‘Video Games’ late last year, Lana Del Rey has divided opinion across the globe. Whilst many are in awe of her David Lynch-esque imagery and dusky vocals, others have lashed out at her awkward live performances and dismissed the hype surrounding her as unfounded.
Just a few lines in and ‘Ride’ contains some trademark Lana Del Rey lyrics. Think what you like about her; the fact that she even has a ‘trademark’ so early into her career is probably a sign that we haven’t seen the last of her just yet. ‘Born To Die’ – The Paradise Edition will be released on November 23, 2012. The original track-listing remains intact but eight bonus tracks will be added to the CD and vinyl versions of the album. A special box set will also include a remix album and DVD, according to Billboard.com
As for the song itself, ‘Ride’ – which was written by Lana Del Rey and Justin Parker and produced by Rick Rubin – feels more accomplished than some of her previous efforts and makes the most of her voice, rather than showing up its flaws. All that doe-eyed “you can be my full-time daddy / baby” shtick is going to start getting a little tired pretty soon, though, we reckon.
One Direction almost caused a riot at the iTunes Festival at London’s Roundhouse on Thursday evening (September 20, 2012) just by, err, being there. The Press Association reports how fans “squealed and cried” as the boy-band took time out from their set to answer ‘Twitter questions’. Some of their answers were inaudible due to the high pitched din that enveloped the historic venue.
The question-and-answer session was an intriguing affair; for example, we found out that Zayn things Harry is sexy, and that Liam thinks Niall is cute. Oh wait, and Louis thinks Zayn is kind! Anyway, after that, the audience were treated to a blistering set from the group, who performed some of their biggest hits – You Don’t Know You’re Beautful, One Thing and Moments – as well as some of the tracks they performed while on The X Factor. Their cover of Kings Of Leon’s ‘Use Somebody’ went down a storm, as did The Zutons’ ‘Valerie’ and The Black Eyed Peas’ ‘I Gotta Feeling’. It’s safe to say One Direction have been one of Simon Cowell’s biggest success stories, topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and selling out huge venues with ease. Addressing the band’s storming success across the pond, Louis (who said Zayn was nice, remember!), told fans, “We have spent time outside of the UK and it is incredible to be back in London.”
It's the MTV Awards 2012 season and, with the VMA 2012 winners have recently been announced, attention is now turning to another continent and the MTV Europe Music Awards. The nominations have been announced for the event that's taking place in Frankfurt, Germany on November 11th, and it looks like it's going to be 24 year-old pop star Rihanna who is going to be the one to beat.
RiRi is up for six nominations; Best Female, Best Pop, Best Look, Best Video, Best Song and Biggest Fans. She's pretty much out of the running already in the latter, with a fan-vote seeing rivals One Direction and Justin Bieber skyrocketing ahead of the competition. As for the rest though she stands every chance, although she'll have to do battle with Taylor Swift in the first three of those categories; the country star is up for two additional nominations too in Best Live and Best World Stage.
Behind the two female stars, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are up for four categories, whilst a host of stars are up for three, including Lady GaGa, Nicki Minaj, Lana Del Rey, Carly Rae Jepsen and Fun. A few wins for Rihanna will certainly put an upward swing on a turbulent year for the pop star who has found herself mired back in controversy after forgiving a seemingly unrepentant ex-boyfriend Chris Brown after his physical assault on her three years ago.
Rihanna has received 6 nominations for the MTV Europe Music Awards; more than any other act, reports The Telegraph. Muse, Coldplay and One Direction also pick up nominations.
The 24-year Barbadian star has been shortlisted for the awards for best song, best video, best female, best pop, biggest fans, and best look. Both ‘best song’ and ‘best video’ were for the same song, ‘We Found Love’ and ‘best look’ is a brand new category. She is up against Taylor Swift in the female, pop and look sections, whilst Swift was also nominated for best live and best world stage act. Other acts to be recognised, or at least they hope so, are Lana Del Rey, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z and Kanye West, all of which garnered three nominations each. Lady GaGa dominated last year's awards - held in Belfast - coming away with four awards and performing ‘Marry the Night’. This year she is also nominated for three categories.
Given the name of the awards, one would be forgiven for thinking that European acts are the most prominent, but it’s the Americans that continue to dominate year after year, and despite being held in Germany this year, that trend is set to continue. Great Britain represents the biggest European contingent with Muse Coldplay, Rita Ora, One Direction, Florence and the Machine, and M.I.A all hopeful to take home an award come November 11, 2012.
As hyped next big things go, it's fair to say that Lana Del Rey has courted more global attention since GaGa made meat a fashion accessory rather than carnivorous delicacy. The 25-year-old New York based songstress christened Elizabeth Grant at birth somehow managed to polarise opinion before many of those commentators had heard a single note of her music. Although judging by the way 'Video Games' found itself being the most blogged song on the Internet last year it would have been more difficult to avoid her. Controversially derided over her marketing, image, alleged silicone enhancements and even the fact a former British reality television contestant had co-written one of the songs on her record, the days of media hype being enough to justify the means to an end are long gone. And we haven't even mentioned the questionable live television performances or cancelled shows.
