Listen to the nearly seven-minute stunner that opens Ultraviolence.
LDR

"Cruel World" is the stunner that opens up Lana Del Rey's new album, Ultraviolence and it just happens to be the best song on the album that wasn't given the pre-release single treatment. Those single–"West Coast", "Shades of Cool", the title track, and "Brooklyn Baby"–are all great, too.

Earlier today we shared "Is This Happiness," an international-release bonus track from the album. It's a lovely song made even more poignant in light of LDR's recent, morbid interviews.

Ultraviolence is out June 17.
