When it comes to new music from her upcoming album, UltraviolenceLana Del Rey is being something of a tease.

The “Young and Beautiful” singer has released a quick 36-second snippet of album track “Brooklyn Baby” on her official YouTube account, where she also provides one of the song’s lyrical couplets: “My boyfriend’s in the band, he plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed. I got feathers in my hair, I get down to poetry. I’m a Brooklyn Baby.”

The moody, reverb-heavy snippet reveals Del Rey crooning amidst stark guitars and a mournful snare drum beat that plays like something from an ’80s David Lynch soundtrack.

The song is supposed to be on Ultraviolence‘s standard edition as the fourth track, sandwiched between the previously released “Shades of Cool” and “West Coast.”

It’s the latest reveal from her full-length, which is set to hit retailers on June 17.
