"Flipside" is a song recorded by Lana Del Rey, for her album Ultraviolence (2014) that was released by Interscope Records. In the United States, the song was included on her 2014 album exclusively on the Target Exclusive version.
The song features Del Rey’s vocals over Blake Stranathan’s guitar, and stands out for its simplicity of music and emotion, over all the other songs on her sophomore album Ultraviolence.
In it, Del Rey sings of her lover’s unfaithfulness, sounding resigned to the destruction of their own relationship. She thinks it’s simply a matter of time before he hurts her. She hopes that she’ll “catch him on the flipside” meaning, see him later, and make him fall in love with her just like he caught her before i.e. made her fall for him. The resigned and broken tone she assumes in the song is typical of Ultraviolence, and is a fitting finish to the album.
