Lana Del Rey Details 'Born to Die,' Unveils Title Track and Album Cover
Published Dec 02, 2011Highly touted songstress Lana Del Rey has already whipped up plenty of excitement for her debut LP with Interscope, which is impressive given the short time she's been on the scene. She's clearly intent on keeping the momentum high, as she just unveiled some of the details of the album.
First off, she has ditched the Prince-like stylization of Born 2 Die for the more grammarian-friendly title Born to Die. You can see the album cover above. She also unveiled the audio for the title track, and shared a simple video that shows her a tattooed dude in a shirtless embrace for almost five minutes (see below). An official video will be unveiled soon.
Pitchfork reports that the album will also include tracks like "Blue Jeans," "Off to the Races", "Million Dollar Man" and "Carmen." There's no word as to whether the blog-buzzed "Video Games" will make the cut.
Lana also has a remix EP on the way containing contributions from Damon Albarn, Clams Casino, and Woodkid.
Born to Die is due out January 30 through Interscope Records. The "Born to Die" single is out a week before, on January 23.
