Lana Del Rey pleaded with fans not to listen to leaked music after some of her prized items were stolen in a California smash-and-grab.

The New York native, 37, told fans that thieves took her backpack containing her computer, multiple hard drives, and a camcorder.

“A few months ago, I parked my car on Melrose Place — actually Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles — and I stepped away for a minute,” she said in a now-deleted Instagram Live video Wednesday.

“And the one time I left my backpack inside my car, someone broke all the windows and took it.”

The singer was in the process of writing a book for publishing giant Simon & Schuster but revealed the 200-page manuscript was among the items stolen, as well as a camcorder filled with irreplaceable family footage.

“I had to remotely wipe the computer that had my 200-page book for Simon and Schuster—which I didn’t have backed up on the cloud,” she said.

“And despite that, people are still able to remotely access my phone and leak our songs and personal photos. I loved the book that I lost with all of my heart and put a lot of passion into it.”

The “Ride” hitmaker, whose real name is Elizabeth Grant, said her ninth studio album was also loaded up on the stolen laptop, adding even more stress to the situation.

The singer/songwriter, however, said she’s “confident” the album will eventually make it to an official release following last year’s album titled “Blue Banisters,” but admitted she has to “start over.”

“I just want to mention that despite all of this happening, I am confident in the record to come—despite so many safety factors at so many different levels. I really want to persist and make the best record I can,” she said.

She went on to urge fans to ignore anything that gets leaked, including new music and personal footage.

“Please don’t listen to the music if you hear it, because it’s not coming out yet,” she said.

“Obviously I won’t ever leave anything in the car again, even if it’s just for a moment. But we’ve had the same issues at the house, and it is a constant thing. And although I’m so grateful to be able to share all of the good stuff, I just also want to share that it has been a challenge.”
