Lana Del Rey's new album 'Ultraviolence' is being produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach

Lana Del Rey's new album 'Ultraviolence' is being produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.

The 'National Anthem' singer took to Twitter yesterday to post a picture of herself sitting on the lap of the rock frontman and Grammy Award winning producer.

She teased fans by writing alongside the snap: "Me and Dan Auerbach are excited to present you Ultraviolence."

Dan has produced records for a number of artists including The Growlers, Hanni El Khatib and Dr John, and the picture hints that he has been working with Lana on the follow-up to 'Born to Die' in 2012, her second studio album.

'Ultraviolence' is rumoured to be released on May 1, after the singer accidentally told a fan the release date, whilst signing an autograph.

Speaking about the new record, she also said: "It's so good that it made me forget about the last record. I'm in love with it. I have that romantic feeling about it."

The 27-year-old singer revealed the title of her next record at the launch event for her short film Tropico last year. Appearing onstage at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome, she said: "I really just wanted us all to be together so I could visually close the chapter before I release my new album, 'Ultraviolence'."

Last month she also released new track 'Once Upon A Dream', the theme song from the soundtrack to the new Disney film, 'Maleficient'.

Bluesy garage licks a-go-go from Akron, Ohio, birthplace of the Cramps' Lux Interior, so it must be something in the local reservoir. Something fossilised by the sounds of the Keys' anachronistic sound.
