Listen: Lana Del Rey's New Single "Ride," Produced By Rick Rubin

Brace yourself, haters and NBC News anchors! Lana Del Rey has a new song out. The new track, "Ride," is the first single off her forthcoming Born to Die reissue, titled Born to Die-The Paradise Edition. What’s more is it’s produced by legendary producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, Jay-Z, etc). Despite its Rubin-pedigree, it sounds not unlike every other Del Rey song , which is to say: it’s another sultry slow jam harkening back to some '60s-ish time that probably only exists in Del Rey’s mind. While it won’t convert the critics, it should certainly satisfy her fans.

Born to Die –The Paradise Edition is out November 13 in digital and double-CD formats (remember those?!).
