Well, this was an unexpected surprise.

The Internet has dug up four — count ’em, four! — previously unheard Lana Del Rey songs, all as-yet unreleased. Del Rey’s major-label debut, last spring’s Born to Die, is getting an expanded “Paradise edition” rerelease this fall, so that’s likely the source of these tracks.

One of the cuts, “Ghetto Baby,” is actually a demo of a song Del Rey wrote for Cheryl Cole, but, honestly, we might prefer this version better. Then there’s “Summer of Sam,” a more fun-and-breezy number with a playful bounce and those classic braggy Del Rey lyrics (“I’m the baddest girl in NYC” and “I be murderin’ ’em,” says the self-proclaimed gangsta Nancy Sinatra). But “Serial Killer” has the best chance of pleasing fans who love Lana for those cinematic “Video Games”-type songs, while “Ooh Baby” is probably our least favorite of the bunch, with the singer’s vocal style slipping into that faux-sex kitten whine that irked many Born to Die listeners.

Anyway, give all four of ’em a listen below and let us know what you think in the comments.
