Lana Del Rey Saves Christmas With Her 'Big Eyes' Soundtrack Songs, "I Can Fly" And "Big Eyes"

Santa Del Claus has come early, kids. When she's not BFF-ing all over the place with her new pal Courtney Love, Saint Lana Del Rey also enjoys being the Queen of Soundtracks. She's done it with The Great Gatsby ("Young & Beautiful") and again with Maleficent ("Once Upon A Dream"), and now, she's…


Lana Del Rey And Courtney Love Became Everybody's Best Friend At The British Fashion Awards

Lorde and Taylor Swift. Rihanna and Katy Perry. Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love: BFFs!

Lana Del Rey, Queen Of Soundtracks, Is Coming To Save Christmas With "Big Eyes" & "I Can Fly"

Lana Del Rey was rudely robbed of an Oscar nomination for her Great Gatsby anthem "Young & Beautiful" earlier this year due to #SABOTAGE and shady Academy dealings, but it seems she's giving the cinema another go. This Christmas, Lana will be providing not one, but two new songs for Tim Burton's…


Jessica Lange Covers Lana Del Rey's "Gods & Monsters" On 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' (And It's Great)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5M977nBP1g&feature=youtu.be So, okay: I don't watch American Horror Story: Freak Show, but not out of rebellion — I'm not proud of it! It's just because I'm not very good at keeping up with TV shows (unless they are Love & Hip Hop or Veep), and yes, I know that I…


Lana Del Rey's Video For "Ultraviolence" Is Neither Ultra Nor Violent: Discuss

...Alright then, Lana. This visual could use a major rethink and borders on parody, but at least the music's still good. Orange you glad I didn't stick my fingers in your mouth? 'Ultraviolence' was released on June 16. (iTunes)


Lana Del Rey, 'Ultraviolence': A Black And Blue Beauty (Album Review)

[dropcap size=small]"S[/dropcap]hared my body and my mind with you," Lana Del Rey wistfully coos at the start of Ultraviolence. "That's all over now." Once those psychedelic guitars come reverberating into the speakers, the sonic shift from 2012's Born To Die to Ultraviolence becomes instantly…


"Brooklyn Baby": Lana Del Rey Feels Free On Nostalgic 'Ultraviolence' Track

"Give me all of that Ultraviolence!" we cry. "Okay," she says. "Brooklyn Baby" is latest cut to come from Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence (out on June 17), following the release of "Ultraviolence," "Shades Of Cool" and "West Coast." And, for once, our Queen of Coney Island seems to be in a pretty…


"Ultraviolence": The Grim, Gorgeous Heart Of Lana Del Rey's Record

By now, we've got a decent sense of what to expect from Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence.

LA Producer Stint Breathes New Life Into Lana Del Rey's "West Coast"

Yes, I know: We've already heard, like, a billion "West Coast" remixes. But while we desperately savor every sweet note coming from Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence — including "Shades Of Cool," most recently – this particular remix is a real treat to pass the time until the new record hits our…


"Shades Of Cool": Lana Del Rey Tries To Break Through On Stormy 'Ultraviolence' Cut

Just in time for a drive by the coast as the sun sets for the evening (go hop in your Bugatti Veyrons, y'all), Lana Del Rey has graced our ears with an absolutely stunning new offering off of Ultraviolence: "Shades Of Cool," co-penned by Born To Die collaborator Rick Nowels. (The song will be made…
