Lana Del Rey Single “West Coast” Officially Debuts

After a few weeks of hints, Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast,” the first single off ‘Ultraviolence,’ dropped this morning. Lana Del Rey Single “West Coast” Officially Debuts

Buildup to Lana Del Rey’s first single off Ultraviolence began just a few weeks ago.

First, she hinted at the track on Twitter, after a fan asked about her latest single. At the time, “Under The Pale Moonlight” leaked, and many wondered if that track would be her sophomore album’s first single.

Then, in preparation for her North American tour, a series of billboards popped up – some displaying the album title with an image of Del Rey, and others with a lyric from “West Coast.”

Then, at her Las Vegas concert on April 11, Del Rey decided to give fans an unofficial preview by singing part acapella. She said, "I'll just sing you a little bit of the verse without the band," and then launched into the song.

Now, this morning, the singer officially debuted the track in full on Fearne Cotton’s BBC Radio 1 program and followed that by posting the full song online.

Although a release date for Ultraviolence hasn’t been made official, the singer accidentally slipped in telling fans it would come out in May. In addition, the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach has been working with her in the studio.
