'A Clockwork Orange' representatives excited that Lana Del Rey has titled her new album 'Ultraviolence'

It was recently confirmed that Lana Del Rey's new album will be called 'Ultraviolence' and the title appears to have been influenced by Anthony Burgess’ most popular novel, 'A Clockwork Orange'. 

Clare Preston-Pollitt, the events and marketing officer at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, has now revealed to MTV News that it's exciting to see the book still has such an influence over popular culture:

"We’ve definitely heard about Lana’s choice to title her record 'Ultraviolence'. We picked up on it some time ago and we were intrigued by it… It’s fantastic that ‘A Clockwork Orange’ is still providing inspiration to such a diverse range of artists around the world over 50 years since its original publication.”

Del Rey's 'Ultraviolence' is due to be officially released on June 16 and she has just unveiled a new song from the offering, which is called 'Shades Of Cool'. Dan Auerbach, of The Black Keys, has been producing the record and told Rolling Stone magazine that she was a dream to work with:

"She's a true eccentric, and, you know, extremely talented. She has a definite vision of what she is and what she wants to be, musically and visually, which is cool. [Drummer Patrick Carney] and I have always just been, like, ‘You can take our photo, I guess,’ but she just like looks at this whole thing as this big art project that she gets to do, which is great."
