The lead single from Lana Del Rey's forthcoming LP Ultraviolence will get its first play on BBC Radio 1 on Monday (April 14).

As confirmed by a Guardian journalist on Twitter, 'West Coast' will be premiered on Fearne Cotton's show (which starts at 10am) on Monday, April 14. The news follows rumours that 'West Coast' will be released on iTunes over the weekend (which is obviously not going to happen now).

The single artwork to 'West Coast' was revealed by Del Rey on her Facebook today (April 11). The campaign for the single and forthcoming second album Ultraviolence seems to have kicked into gear in the past few days, with billboards promoting the record popping up in LA and New York.

The 'Ride' star will play her first live show of 2014 at The Chelsea, Las Vegas, tonight. She'll then head to Coachella to play the Sunday of the California festival this weekend.

Ultraviolence is rumoured to be released in May - but an official date is yet to be confirmed.

Below - 7 reasons why Lana Del Rey is pretty much the perfect pop star:
