Description

Already, not much needs to be said about Lana Del Rey. She lets the music and her art speak for itself which is already appreciated by millions of fans worldwide and all media even dub her the POP Phenomenon 2012! Fact is, Lana Del Rey is an extraordinary and already extraordinarily successful artist - after the #1 hit "Video Games" now comes the debut album "Born To Die" with exclusively self-written songs! Sometimes stars evolve.

Sometimes stars are just thrust upon us. And then, at times, there are stars who simply soak in the atmosphere as if propelled by some otherworldly force. Lana Del Rey, with her amazing charisma, impressive voice, commanding look and unique feel, falls into this latter category Her name has been ghosting around the internet for months, the blogs are rolling over. The feuilleton and the music press also predict a great future for the self-proclaimed 'Gangsta Nancy Sinatra': Die Zeit headlined, "Lana Del Rey gives pop back its big pose." And Rolling Stone summed it up in a four-page story, "Lana Del Rey is still a pop star in puppy status. But if she lives up to the promise she made with "Video Games," 2012 could be her year."

Her songs combine influences that are both musical and visual: David Lynch, soundtracks to black-and-white movies from the '50s, the whirring sound of the Ferris wheel at Coney Island, fame itself. Over everything, there's a sense that none of that exists these days. Lana Del Rey's self-produced videos for "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" convey these images and moods perfectly
