Lana del Rey rides again, premieres mini movie

Releases

Lana Del Rey

The ever-understated Lana Del Rey has unveiled a pretty ambitious ten-minute promo for her new single ‘Ride’. She talks quite a lot at the start of it, saying things like: “I was a singer, not a very popular one. But I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet”.

That’s Lana’s character saying that by the way, not the real Lana. Well, maybe it’s Lizzy Grant – Lana’s less lucrative self in a past life – talking. I guess we’ll never know either way.

Talking of talking, I’m going to stop, and leave the saying of inane things to Lana/’Lana’, who does it so very beautifully:

‘Ride’ the single was released yesterday, and also features on the now-available ‘Paradise’ restyle of Del Rey’s debut LP ‘Born To Die’.
