The new songs follow Del Rey’s contribution to the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby ‘Young & Beautiful’ and her duet with boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill of Scottish rockers Kassidy on Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood‘s 1967 track ‘Summer Wine’.

Del Rey revealed that her forthcoming second album will be a more “spiritual” affair. The ‘Video Games’ singer, who now lives in the UK, said the follow-up to her 2012 debut album ‘Born To Die’ will be stripped down but still “cinematic and dark”.

She told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that her songwriting has “moved on to a more spiritual place lyrically”. She said: “It’s a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark. I’ve been working on it really slowly but I love everything I’ve done. I’ve been writing in Santa Monica and I know what the record sounds like. Musically, I’ve worked with the same three guys. Now I just have to finish it.”
