Previously unheard Lana Del Rey tracks have leaked online. It's regular occurence for the Born To Die superstar...

The singer had a hard-drive stolen in 2013, and as a result, many demos and unfinished tracks have emerged online in the months since. The latest tracks to be revealed are 'Criminals Run The World' and 'Behind Closed Doors'. Listen to both below.

'Criminals Run The World'

 

'Behind Closed Doors'

 

At the end of last year, Del Rey announced plans for her second album, Ultra-Violence, during the premiere for her Tropico movie. However, both leaked tracks are believed to be from demos from her early days and not taken from sessions for her next release. No further details or release date has been announced.

"I really just wanted us all to be together so I could close the chapter before I release my new album, Ultraviolence," she told her fans at the premiere, who responded to the news with screams and cheers.

Below: Ultra Violence and more big albums of 2014 to get excited about

  • You Me At Six: In an interview with Gigwise recently, the band's frontman Josh Franceschi said that new album 'Cavalier Youth' was "the best record we've ever done." It will be released on 27 January 2014 and will be the band's fourth album.

  • Kanye West. We don't have a name, track list or release date for this yet, but what we do know is it's being produced by Rick Rubin and Q-Tip, and West will probably claim it to be more important than the Declaration of Independence.

  • Mutya Keisha Siobhan. Technically, they're more Sugababes than Sugababes. The three original members of the band have reformed under the inspiring name Mutya Keisha Siobhan. Slated to be released in early 2014, the new album will feature debut single 'Flatline.'

  • The Black Keys. Following the success of 'El Camino', Black Keys' lead singer confidently predicted that they would be able to make their next album in just "two weeks." This was in 2012. One can only hope the band's eighth studio album will at least be out next year.

  • Adele. Adele's third album is surrounded by more rumour than actual fact, but that's not going to stop people talking about it. The singer confirmed at the 2013 Grammy Awards that she was in the "very early stages" of her third album. Reports have circulated that she's working with Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford, but Adele is remaining uncharacteristically quiet about the whole thing.

  • Sia. Sia's probably better known for her collaborations - most notably with David Guetta , Flo Rida and Eminem - than her solo music. But the famously low-profile singer has a solo album due to be released in March, and it may come as a surprise to some that it will be her sixth.

  • Elbow. Though it was originally titled All At Once, Elbow have since renamed their sixth album Carry Her Carry Me. Lead singer Guy Garvey described the album, which will be released on 3 March 2014, as "experimental" with "big themes." Intriguing.

  • Beck. New album Morning Phase will be Beck's first album in five years. After a long wait for fans, Beck's twelfth album will be released in February. According to Beck himself, it's full of "infectious optimism."

  • Best Coast. Following the release of their mini-album in October, Best Coast have confirmed that they are recording their fourth full length studio album, due for release in Spring. Lead singer Bethany Cosentino has said "The first record was super Sixties, the second record was really Seventies and this one is going to be really Nineties." Maybe their next one will be set in the future.

  • Warpaint. If it's anything like as good as their debut album The Fool, there's a lot to look forward to with Warpaint's self-titled second offering. And there's not long to wait now, with the album set to be released on 20 January.

  • Bombay Bicycle Club. The band's fourth album is called So Long, See You Tomorrow, and is due out in February. The colourful artwork is inspired by photographic pioneer Eadweard Muybridge. They are set to preview a number of tracks from the album at Abbey Road Studios on 13 December.

  • Metronomy. It might look like a forty year old record you just found in a discount store, but this is actually Metronomy's new album Love Letters. Due for release in Spring 2014, the album includes the single 'I'm Aquarius', which was made Zane Lowe's Hottest Track In The World (for a day)

  • Asgeir. This isn't exactly a second album from Icelandic singer Asgeir. It has more or less the same songs of his highly successful debut album, but it's in English. Thanks to translations by John Grant, the album looks set to bring Asgeir's music to a new audience.

  • St Vincent. The singer's fourth solo album is reported to be self-titled, and will be released in February. The lead single will be the the ominous sounding 'Birth In Reverse.'

  • M0. Finally, an album we have all the details about. M0 debut album No Mythologies To Follow will be released on 24 February via Chess Club. It was recorded at No Wav studios with producer Ronni Vindahl. Just look at all these facts. Not a rumour in sight.

  • The Avalanches. The Australian band haven't released another album since their debut in 2000, but now finally they have a follow-up in the works. The Guardian's Nosheen Iqbal was granted an exclusive listen to the new songs, and tweeted "They sound exactly the same... But in a really GOOD way."

  • Manic Street Preachers. Described by frontman James Dean Bradfield as "more aggressive and experimental" than their previous album, Futurology is expected to be released in May.

  • Band of Skulls. The Southampton rock band are due to release their third album Himalayan in Spring. Lead single 'Asleep' was premiered last month on BBC Radio 1 and will be released 5 January.

  • Interpol. The band took a short(ish) break following the release of their self-titled fourth album in 2010, but now work is underway on new material. The band tweeted about their new work in August, saying that the month had been a "breeding ground." For music, we hope.

  • The Kills. The Kills have confirmed they're working on a new album to be released at some point next year. The album will be the duo's fifth, and has a lot to live up to following 2011's critically-acclaimed Blood Pressures.

  • Lily Allen. After announcing she was leaving pop music for good a few years ago, Lily Allen has clearly had a change of heart since then. Releasing an insipid John Lewis Keane cover and a brash feminist satire in the same breath, Allen has returned to grabbing headlines with ease. Let's hope she doesn't dismiss her March album as she did her version of Keane's Somewhere Only We Know.

  • Solange. Featuring collaborations with Patrick Wimberly of Chairlift, Sampha and Dave Logstreth, Solange's new album is set to be released at some point next year. Speaking of the album, which will be released on Saint Records, Solange said "I'm trying to stay motivated because I know it took four years before my last record came out. This is not happening." It better not.

  • Pharrell. Described as 'focused' and 'rap-free', Pharrell's new solo album seems destined to be a more mature affair than his contributions to 'Blurred Lines' and 'Get Lucky.' No word on a release date yet, but the album is apparently about "the difference between 30 and 40." Presumably he means the age, not just the two numbers.

  • Metallica. They're not even starting recording till next year, so it's a little early to get too excited, but Metallica frontman James Hetfield has stated that the band are "itching to record new material." They're currently taking a break though after the release of their 3D thriller concert "Through the Never."

  • Blink 182. Recently confirmed to headline Reading & Leeds 2014 - Blink 182 also announced that they hoped to have new material to perform when they hit the UK festival scene in the summer, with a new album due before R+L.

  • Slipknot. The band's fifth album will be a follow up to 2008's All Hope Is Gone, and will be the first since the death of founding member and bassist Paul Gray. Front man Corey Taylor insists that the album won't be forced, complaining that doing so is "basically McDonald's trying to make music." Hasn't he ever heard Old MacDonald Had a Farm?

  • Lana Del Rey. When she's not busy making films starring unicorns, Lana Del Rey has been working on her second album, titled 'Ultraviolence' - presumably inspired by 'A Clockwork Orange'. No release date has been confirmed yet.

  • Frank Ocean. Cryptic and eloquent, Ocean has said no more about his next album other than it would be released "when summer comes round again". He said this in October of 2013, so it doesn't take a genius to work out that he means next year...

  • Foo Fighters. Apart from the fact that it's "fucking rad" and "badass" according to Dave Grohl, not much is known about Foo Fighters' upcoming eighth album. With claims like that though, it's sure to have gained much hype by the time it's released.
