Lana Del Rey Asks ‘Is This Happiness’ in ‘Ultraviolence’ Bonus Track: Listen

“In my mind, the narrative for this record ends with the last track, not the bonus deluxe stuff, all that business,” Lana Del Rey told in a recent interview concerning Ultraviolence, her newest studio album.

All respect if that’s the case, but that doesn’t mean some of the leftovers aren’t formidable in their own rights.

A somber new track from Ultraviolence‘s recording sessions, “Is This Happiness,” has surfaced. It’s a song that will be featured on the iTunes version of the album’s release as a bonus track.

Set over somber piano, “Is This Happiness” is among Ultraviolence‘s lightest, perhaps prettiest songs, more in line with some of Del Rey’s lilting, breezy older output versus some of the guitar-featuring tracks that populate the new album.

“High up in the Hollywood Hills drinking violet pills / Writing all of my songs about my cheap thrills,” the song starts. “You’re a hard man to love / And I’m a hard woman to keep track of.”
