It seems promotion for Lana Del Rey's highly-anticipated sophomore album, Ultraviolence, has begun in earnest. A giant billboard advertising the singer's second LP has appeared in New York City.

The poster, which reads "ULTRAVIOLENCE" in large red letters, and features a black and white image of Del Rey with a cigarette in her mouth, has appeared on a wall in Brooklyn. It follows the star's announcement that the lead single from Ultraviolence is called 'West Coast'.
