Breakthrough Album from Singer-Songwriter Lana Del Rey! Includes "Video Games" and "Summertime Sadness!"

Lana Del Rey is an American singer-songwriter. Her stage name is a combination of the late old Hollywood actress Lana Turner and the Ford Del Rey. She calls herself the "gangsta Nancy Sinatra." Del Rey cites Kurt Cobain, Thomas Newman and Bruce Springsteen as her musical influences.

On January 30th, 2012 Lana Del Rey released the darkly glamorous 'Born To Die.' Her album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, at #1 on iTunes in eighteen countries, and has sold over 2.5 million albums and 4.5 million singles worldwide to date.

In addition to her visual flair, 'Born To Die'’s cinematic quality is also due to Del Rey’s affinity for classic arrangements. Her ability to fuse mannered torch song balladry with hip-hop bravado imbues the music with a sense of drama that feels familiar yet new. The 12-track 'Born To Die' is dynamically expansive, from the rugged hip-hop flavor of “Off To The Races” to the mesmerizing grandeur of “National Anthem.” Del Rey’s producers and conceptual co-conspirator Emile Haynie helped her realize her musical vision, with Haynie capturing her sound in his intimate studio filled with vintage vinyl and recording equipment. 'Born To Die' is rife with such contrasts as organic spy-movie guitars and swooning strings, grimy samples and juicy hip-hop beats.

Many of her fans’ initial encounter with the singer-songwriter was through her DIY video for “Video Games.” But Del Rey—who filmed and edited the video on her Macbook—had already been recording music and making moody homespun videos for eight years when "Video Games" was posted on YouTube. Its distressed and disquieting Americana imagery and the vintage sophistication of Del Rey’s style was iconically resonant, and “Video Games” has since garnered over 75 million views.
