Lana Del Rey has confirmed that her second album, Ultra Violence, is finished, hinting at a much darker sound than on her debut, Born To Die.

Speaking with fans on Twitter, Lana Del Rey described the album as 'almost unlistenable', but in the best possible way. She does love a bit of drama.

"The record is finished and it's beautiful," she said online. "And don't worry you will love Ultra - it's so wrong and exquisite.

"It is absolutely gorgeous - darker then the first - so dark it's almost unlistenable and wrong," she added."But I love it."

Since the release of her debut album, Born To Die, many demo tracks from the star have leaked online, following an apparent theft of a hard drive containing unheard material. However, the only official new music heard from the star has been her Great Gatsby track, 'Young & Beautiful' and more recently, her cover of 'Once Upon A Dream' from new Disney movie, Maleficent.

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.
