Lana Del Rey confirms new album ‘Honeymoon’ will be out in September!

Lana Del Rey is reported to have said her new album will be released in September during a gig in Washington last night (May 22).

Fan accounts from the Amphitheater Northwest in Ridgefield, Washington date on Reddit state that Del Rey confirmed a September release date for the record. This would mean the album arrives almost a year after ‘Ultraviolence’, which was released in June 2014.

“She indeed said she had a new album coming out in September and that she hoped we enjoy it,” one fan reported.

Del Rey is currently on tour in the US with Courtney Love on the 'Endless Summer’ tour and has showcased lyrics from a song titled 'Honeymoon’ in a booklet available to buy from the tour’s merchandise stall.

Reports have previously stated that Del Rey has written nine tracks for her next album already, which she says will be “very different” to 'Ultraviolence’. Lana Del Rey has reportedly recruited the services of producer Mark Ronson for the album.

I don’t care about Eurovision, I don’t care about Gaga, all I care now is Lana’s record and future retro genre. Honeymoon is gonna slay us all

Honeymoon in Jamaica!!! I am so not ready to be home but here I am. We had so much fun and it was absolutely amazing!!!! Massages, kayaking, snorkeling, beach time, bamboo river rafting, we seriously could not have asked for better. If you are going anywhere in Jamaica make it Sandals Royal Plantation, it is beyond phenomenal!
