Lana Del Rey‘s sophomore album, Ultraviolence, was one of the more anticipated album releases of 2014 before a member of the Black Keys was attached to the project. Now, Keys frontman Dan Auerbach is reportedly producing the follow-up to 2012’s “Born To Die,” due out in the middle of 2014.
“Me and Dan Auerbach are excited to present you Ultraviolence,” the singer posted on Twitter on Thursday, accompanied with a photo of her and Auerbach sharing one seat. Following the Twitter tease, Revolt TV reported that Auerbach has indeed been brought in to produce the LP.
Aside from fronting blues-rock stalwarts the Black Keys — whose most recent album, El Camino, has sold 1.3 million copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan — Auerbach has recently produced material for Dr. John, Hacienda and Ray LaMontagne, among others. Last year, Auerbach earned the Grammy trophy for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, trumping artists like Diplo and Jeff Bhasker in the process.
Del Rey teased a May 1 release date for Ultraviolence earlier this month, but a rep for the singer tells Billboard that a release date has yet to be confirmed. In 2013, the singer scored a Top 10 hit with Cedric Gervais‘ “Summertime Sadness” remix and released her “Tropico” short film; this year, she’s been confirmed to perform at Coachella and the Sweetlife Festival, among others. She’s also rumored to be working with Giorgio Moroder on her next full-length.
