The icy singer debuted the single Monday with the iTunes pre-sale launch of her upcoming album "Ultraviolence", produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach

On “Shades of Cool” Del Rey teams up again with frequent collaborator songwriter Rick Nowels, delivering a sweeping, atmospheric ballad that contrasts the more pop-savvy swaggering “West Coast”
