Lana Del Rey has been keeping her Ultraviolence album release date on the hush — until now. It looks like her third studio album will come out on May 1.

A video has surfaced of the singer being spotted by a group of fans with whom she chats with and even sings one “Happy Birthday.” During their encounter, the singer was asked when the album would be available, and she spilled the beans about the May 1 date before realizing she was being recorded. Trying to feign uncertainty after the slip, she followed up the revelation with a quick “Yeah, I think so.”

“It’s so good that it made me forget about the last record,” she tells her fans when asked about Ultraviolence. “I’m in love with it. I have ‘that feeling’ about it. I have that romantic feeling about it. I’m excited.”
