Lana Del Rey Readies ‘New Album’

Published: Thursday 8th Mar 2012 by David

This time last year, the name Lana Del Rey meant absolutely nothing to the charts and debate she has gone on to dominate.

Rising to ‘mainstream’ fame in the latter part of 2011, this year saw the release of her second studio album, ‘Born To Die‘, spawning the smash hit singles ‘Video Games‘ and ‘Born To Die‘.

Now, following the LP’s success, Ms. Rey is reportedly readying the release of it’s ‘follow up’, by way of Interscope and Polydor Records.

Details below…

In 2010- before signing to Jimmy Iovine‘s Interscope- Rey released her debut LP ‘Lana Del Rey AKA Lizzy Grant‘ independently, in partnership with ‘Vanilla Sky‘ maestro David Kahn.

However, after being available for online purhcase, it was pulled by Rey’s father Robert Grant, who bought the rights to the LP from her then label ‘5 Points‘. This, according to Kahn, was because:

She wanted to be Lana Del Rey and didn’t want to be Lizzy Grant. That was her family name, and she’s very dramatic. She wiped [out] this other person. I think she actually thinks that she’s that other person, and she probably is.

So that was the decision that she made, that she didn’t want traces of that whole person around, as far as I can tell.

Now it seems, she’s had a change of heart.

For, in an interview with BBC News, the singer revealed that she may re-release the project in the summer, explaining:

People act like it’s so shrouded in mystery, the ‘forgotten terrible album’.

But if you look on YouTube, all 13 tracks are available with millions of views, so it’s not like no-one’s heard them.We were all proud of it. It’s pretty good.I’m re-releasing it, maybe in late summer.

Get into one of the LP’s cuts below:

So what do you think?

    She’s sucks and she got exposed—the pop artists of the world that are smart do the cleaning up and image making behind closed doors. The b**** was way too thirsty, and she put herself out too early before they had that fake ass “indie” strategy put together. I hope she and everyone else like her rots!

    her latest album, the official one, has amazing tracks.

    and thats what really should matter.

    so, she should Stay in the industry, more than most acts of todays charts.

    I wish her luck on the next cd. Here in the States, she’s still being bashed for her SNL appearance. Which in all honesty is kind of unfair because I can name a majority of other live acts that were terrible on SNL, they were already established. I’m not too familiar with her stuff except from the one video I saw on Youtube though. Her voice isn’t bad, she just needs different choice of songs.

    I’m here for her. I love Born to Die.

    Who is she and why so many posts about her? Is she a UK only artist or something ?

  17. Solange July 6, 2012

    Everyone is so damn stupid. Lana Del Rey’s only haters are people that don’t know who she is. Yeah; she doesn’t show her booty to the world. And she doesn’t sing electronic music either. Doesn’t mean shes a bore fest. Why don’t you shut the F*** UP, Watch one of her music videos and them you’ll know who the f*** she is.
