Listen: Lana Del Rey, “Brooklyn Baby”

Lana Del Rey has unveiled yet another track from her new album, Ultraviolence, out June 17th on Interscope Records. Co-written by the singer’s beau, Barrie O’Neill of the band Kassidy (“My boyfriend’s in a band,” she boasts several times throughout), the quietly haunting “Brooklyn Baby” is the most understated of the songs previewed from the album so far, and at nearly six minutes, it’s also the longest. A generous helping of reverb makes Del Rey’s vocals sound like they were recorded at the bottom of a well, her catchy “da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da” trills echoing the opening guitar melody in between wistful references to Lou Reed, the ’70s, and hydroponic weed. Listen below:
