Lana Del Rey’s debut album will be titled Born 2 Die, just like her next single. This is one of my most anticipated albums in general, so it’s exciting to hear that it’s looking like it will be released on January 23rd (via Interscope).
Look out for the single/music video which should be out shortly. The video will include a live tiger.

More and more live clips of Lana Del Rey performing new songs keep surfacing. The latest track is a ballad titled “China Doll”. She performed the song in Manchester, England and shared it on her facebook page. You may continue to hate, but I continue to love the hell out of this woman.

Lana Del Rey performed her new single, “Born 2 Die” last night in Paris. One of the lyrics is:
Let me fuck you hard in pouring rain, you like your girls insane.
It has this hard driven passion about it that makes me really confident about the recorded version of this single. My adoration of Ms. Del Rey has become an unpopular decision but if she keeps writing pop songs of this quality, I have no shame.

Lana Del Rey has been remixed and covered probably more than anyone else in recent memory. It’s totally warranted. She apparently has finally officially announced that she is signed to Interscope Records, a move that shouldn’t be surprising. It is a move that’s going to keep the haters hating for her being marketing as an indie artist. That’s an argument for another day.
Kasabiant aren’t one of those haters. They recently covered “Video Games” for their BBC Live Lounge Session. It doesn’t change up the song at all, but why fix something that’s clearly not broken.
Lana Del Rey has just posted (via twitter/facebook) that she has a new song that she worked on with XL Recordings’ Richard Russell, Blur/Gorillaz headmaster, Damon Albarn, and Bobby Womack. I’m going to venture a guess and say that this song may end up on her debut album, but hopefully we get to hear it even sooner.

Lana Del Rey stopped by Jools Holland for one of her first live TV performances. She’s clearly a little nervous, something that I actually really like. Shows that she’s human. The performance of “Video Games” isn’t perfect, but it hints at the perfection found in the song.
Add Mover Shaker’s remix of “Video Games” to the evergrowing list:
Jamie Woon has offered up a pretty mind expanding remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”. He adds his night-step touch giving the fantastic song a dark intense feel. Pitches are changed, as Jamie changes her hazey influence to a darker shade.
This is a proper re-imagined version of “Video Games”. Hat tip to you Mr. Woon, this is fantastic.
