Lana Del Rey announces her new album title as 'Lust for Life'

Lana Del Rey's new album is called 'Lust for Life'.

The 'Born to Die' hitmaker has taken to her Twitter account to share a trailer for her follow-up to 2015's 'Honeymoon'.

In the clip, which is just over two minutes long, it kicks off with eerie black and white footage of the Hollywood sign.

The brunette beauty then explains how she needed "space" to create her record and needed to be as "far away" from "real life" as possible to capture her thoughts into songs following the "tumultuous times" Americans find themselves in following the election of President Donald Trump.

She explained: "You know in this time an artist really needs a lot of space when they are trying to create something special.

"A place to cultivate a world of their own away from the real world that is around them.

"Luckily for me, I live right inside the middle of the edge of the Hollywood sign.

"And this is how I spend most of my nights, perched high above the chaos that swirls within the city of angels below.

"But truthfully, when I am in the middle of making a record, especially now when the world is in the middle of such a tumultuous period, I find I really need to take the space for myself as far away from real life to consider what my contribute to the world should be in these dark times.

"Something with a little spice? Something with a little bitterness but is ultimately sweet? Or should I take the day off and turn down the fire and just take a moment to send my love to them ... because sometimes just being pure of heart and having good intentions and letting them be known is the most worthy contribution an artist can make.

"So, even though these times can feel a little bit crazy. They are not so very different from other generations as they have experienced it at what time or another before.

"Amidst all the uncertainty and as we transition out of one era into another one there's no place I'd rather be than smack damn in the middle of dab in the middle of Hollyweird making this record for you. Because you and the music and this place are my love, my life Lust for Life. (sic)"

The beauty has already unveiled the first single from the record, 'LOVE'.

The album is a body of work created by Del Rey and her long-time producer and collaborator Rick Nowels. Producers Benny Blanco and Emile Haynie. It is also set to include some exciting guest featured artists.

It comes after she tweeted about a potential collaboration with The Weeknd.

'Lust for Life' is expected to drop later this year.
