If you didn’t quite get enough of Lana Del Rey in 2011 and 2012, the singer-songwriter seems to be gearing up to impose a hostile takeover of 2013 too, with upbeat new track Queen Of Disaster leaking online. Take a listen below.
This is the third peek at new music from Del Rey in recent times. Her moody, cinematic contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack Young & Beautiful was streamed in full last month and her cover of Leonard Cohen‘s Chelsea Hotel #2 surfaced at the end of March. Queen Of Disaster is definitely the most upbeat number we’ve heard from the songstress yet, with a distinctive 60’s pop feel that will make you get your shimmy on.
American-born, UK-based Del Rey has been hard at work on the follow-up to her smash debut Born To Die, telling BBC Radio 1 that the process has been slow but she loves her new material: “It’s a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark.”
