“Off To The Races” is a track from Lana Del Rey’s debut album, Born To Die. It was released as iTunes UK free single of the week, and we heard the live version a little while back. It’s got a different feel from the rest of the tracks that we have heard from Lana so far. It’s a more produced tracks featuring beats and a heavy influence of a pop star.
I need to let this one sink in a bit more. Take a listen below, let me know what you think. I’m sure you will. When it comes to Lana, someone always does.

Lana Del Rey shared her new single “Born 2 Die” this morning. The internet is going crazy arguing over her authenticity as we speak. You can argue all you want, but I’m a fan of her music. If you’re a fan of her previous releases, you’re going to enjoy “Born 2 Die” a great deal. If you hate her, you probably still do. Oh well.
Take a listen to “Born 2 Die” below. The single is officially released on January 23rd, and the album on January 30th.
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.
