    Lana Del Rey’s third studio album Ultraviolence will be released next month. The lead single West Coast‘s video is out. Here.

    Her previous album sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Due to the success of Born to Die‘s sales, she was recognized by the Grammys with “Best Pop Vocal Album” (for her EP Paradise) and “Best Song Written For Visual Media” (Young and Beautiful) nominations.

    Years ago I wasn’t the biggest fan of Ms. Del Rey, but she has grown on me recently, especially “West Coast” (maybe it’s the Dan Auerbach-factor). I’m actually looking forward to this album!

    I really like “West Coast”, and I think a big reason why is Dan Auerbach’s production. It’s perfect for her style.

    She’s grown on me over the past year. Interested in her new album.

    Just heard “West Coast.” That’s some song! Wow. Guess I have to start checking for hacky Lana again.

    If you had told me last year that Lana Del Rey would have one of my ten favorite albums of the year, I would have thought you were insane, but here we are.  DAMN this album is great – so much more focused and layered than her previous works, finally matching the promise that “Video Games” brought back in 2011.  Check out “Brooklyn Baby”, “Money Power Glory”, and “Cruel World”.  I know it’s only June, but thus far, I would support this for an AOTY nomination (though she won’t get it) – easily one of the best pop albums (if not the best) of the past year.

    I definitely agree with you. When Lana first came on the scene I was a bit put off by her musical stylings, but I must say that I was completely surprised by Ultraviolence. The production from Dan Auerbach really takes the album to a different level…and despite her vocal limitations she actually sounds great. My favorite tracks are “Money Power Glory”, “Shades of Blue”, “Florida Kilos”, “Fucked My Way to the Top”, and “Ultraviolence”. I really hope she can get some Grammy love for this project, it truly is an awesome pop album.

    It’s interesting…I either love these songs or I’m not a fan. My favorite tracks are “Cruel World,” “Ultraviolence,” “Shades of Cool” and “Black Beauty” from the deluxe version. But the songs I don’t download I don’t really like. Some songs seem repetitive in theme. I will say that this album is very ambitious and altogether a better effort than “Born to Die.” Lana’s vocals are a lot stronger, too.

    Dan Auerbach, bitches! The production on this album is crazy good.

    Lana owes mountains to this guy.

    Lana Del Rey debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 (her first number one album) with first week sales of 182,000.  This is the best sales week for a female artist since Beyonce debuted at #1 in December 2013.  Sam Smith debuts at #2 with 166,000.

    http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/chart-alert/6133900/lana-del-rey-lands-first-no-1-album-on-billboard-200

    I know it’s still a longshot, but with a #1 debut on the Billboard 200 and the reviews Ultraviolence has been getting, it may be a longshot contender for AOTY / General Field.  We’ll see what other pop contenders come into play the remainder of the time and what legs the album has, but it may be a solid top 15 contender at least if Del Rey is able to carry buzz over at all.  As the above article notes, she hasn’t performed on American TV in over two years and has done little promotion for the album; if she starts performing and lands an SNL slot or performs through another major venue, she may be able to keep sales up for the rest of the eligibility period.
