Lana Del Rey‘s TROPICO is finally upon us.
I’m neither physically nor emotionally prepared to take a 30-minute journey into the land of Gods & Monsters at this time, but I will be watching later today. In the meantime, it’s here for you, for you, it’s all for you…
So crack open a can of Diet Mountain Dew, get your bad baby by your heavenly side (or a Lana Del Pillow) and let Lana take you far, far away to a world known as TROPICO.
From the official press release:
Written by Lana and directed by Anthony Mandler, ‘Tropico’ is a tale of redemption told to the music of ‘Body Electric’ ‘Gods and Monsters’ and ‘Bel Air’ – all tracks taken from Lana’s “Born To Die” – The Paradise Edition album. The film, which also stars model Shaun Ross, was directed by Anthony Mandler who directed Del Rey’s videos for “National Anthem” and “Ride”. Lana premiered Tropico yesterday in Hollywood, where she announced that her new album is called ‘Ultraviolence’.
I’ll be back with thoughts later tonight.
‘Born To Die: The Paradise Edition’ was released in November of 2012. (iTunes)
