Rumors are floating around that Miss Lana Del Rey is currently working on her second studio album. In turn, a polished "demo" of her song "Black Beauty" has surfaced.

Lana delicately sings about changing for a lover who won't change in "Black Beauty." She coos the lyrics: "What can I do / life is beautiful / but you don't have a clue." Although this track is a supposed demo, we hear faint traces of her debut single,"Blue Jeans", in the echo of twangy guitar.

Back in February, Lana Del Rey spoke with BBC about her untitled forthcoming album,

"It's a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark. For some reason the videos are still the easiest things that come. As soon as I write the words to a song, I can paint exactly what I want the picture to look like. I have a song called 'Black Beauty' and I've already talked to people about making it."

Could that interview have sparked the unofficial internet release of "Black Beauty"? Who knows. But if Lana's management had anything to do with it, it was a great stunt because the blogs and fans went crazy over it. Maybe there is a video on it's way, similar to the way "Summer Wine" popped up out of nowhere. Only YouTube will tell...
