Lana Del Rey - “Shades of Cool”

Here’s a new one from one of my top favorite female vocalists, Lana Del Rey. The Stereogum article about this song sums it up perfectly: “it’s a gloomy, jazzy waltz with a big chorus — major James Bond trad-pop vibes.” This track is all of those things, is definitely unique and interesting, and makes me eager with anticipation for her new album, Ultraviolence, to drop in mid-June.

For more from Lana Del Rey, check her out on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.

Amazing time at @matildabroadway with my aunties. Feel so lucky to have gotten to see this show, especially after being such a huge fan of the book/movie as a kid. #matilda #matildathemusical #broadway #musical (at Matilda at The Shubert Theatre)
