    Lana Del Rey

    Lana Del Rey Signs To Interscope Records

    Part of Lana del Rey's appeal thus far has been the feeling that you'd stumbled upon a well-kept secret. But a good secret never stays one for long. As predicted, The Next Big Thing is well on her way to becoming The Big Thing. The 24-year-old sultry soul songstress has been signed to Interscope Records, with an album due out in early 2012, Billboard reports. Since we first took notice of her back in August with that damn mesmerizing "Video Games," del Rey's built up a considerable amount of evidence that she deserves our attention -- two solid songs (and accompanying videos), a few live performances -- proof that her voice is, in fact, real -- and the sincerest form of flattery in the music biz -- the remix, by artists across a number of genres. The latest, and best, one came this week from hip-hop collective Odd Future.

    I guess she's one of those "artists" that people have extreme opinions on. Fun for now. Let's see how long it lasts.

    her lips are so noticeable... I wonder if they are permanently like that, or if it is just filler that might subside a bit... they are just so distracting. Of course, she is very pretty, and has a great voice and an interesting sound.

    isn't that why she's "controversial"?

    She has a fantastic voice, with that great retro Nancy Sinatra thing going on. But the way she presents herself, and her general aesthetic... it just makes her seem so insufferable!

    I...Love...HER!

    When I saw the video for Born to Die I fell in love. The video was beautiful. And the song is damn good. Her other songs have to grow on me, but Born to Die is an Amazing song. I see her blowing up in 2011.

    I love her look, style, and music...however, I'm not sure how far her gimmick will go. Where will she be in the next 5 years lol.

    Next model agency sign Lana Del Rey

    Since the release of her debut single Video Games Lana del Rey has been hard to miss.

    Released last October, the haunting tune was an instant hit played almost constantly on the radio and reaching the top 10 in eight different countries. It even proved a success with the fashion set, featuring on the soundtracks to both the Christopher Kane and Emilio de la Morena shows during London Fashion Week 's spring/summer 2012 season.

    Something of a fashion sweetheart already, she's been dressed by Antonio Berardi (for the single's video), Moschino and Prabal Gurung, appeared in a spoof Prada advert for Wonderland magazine and performed at Mulberry's spring/summer 2012 presentation in New York.

    But it's not just her music the fashion world loves. The 25-year-old pouting beauty from New York has now been signed up to the agency, Next Model Management , who look after modelling heavy-weights Abbey Lee Kershaw, Arizona Muze, Karlie Kloss and Anja Rubik, to name just a few.

    Del Rey (whose real name is Elizabeth Grant) will come under their 'talent' wing, joining the likes of Alexa Chung, who is about to head up her own fashion TV show 24 Hour Catwalk in the US, and Alice Dellal, who is the new face of Chanel's 'Boy' bag campaign, so it's safe to say she's in capable hands.

    All this success with just one single under her belt and her album yet to hit shelves - it looks like big things are in store for this up-and-coming beauty.

    Lana Del Rey's second single Born To Die will be released on January 23, with an album of the same name following on January 30.

    This is a true story, folks: I lost my virginity (to a guy) at the age of 22 while listening to Lana Del Rey.

    Anyways, I'm really stoked for her album, despite her poor performance on SNL this past weekend.

    ^ Yeah, I'm not sure why people are obsessing over her lip injections/cosmetic surgeries etc to prove that she's a fake artist. I mean hopefully for her sake she doesn't go overboard with the plastic surgery but...

    It really doesn't change anything as far as people enjoying her music. As long as she continues to sound great and make awesome songs, I'm good. *shrug*

    Lana Del Rey: The Billboard Cover Story

    Rarely is a breaking artist as polarizing as Lana Del Rey.

    The 25-year-old songstress became one of 2011's most seemingly organic upstarts. Following the release of her breakout single "Video Games" and its vintage-shaded video, apparently filmed and edited on her Macbook, the Lake Placid, N.Y., native racked upwards of 13 million YouTube views and has sold 20,000 copies of her double A-side "Video Games" single since its October 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It debuted and spent three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart. Joining Ellie Goulding and Jessie J, Del Rey recently signed with Next Model Management.

    But it's her all-important authenticity that's had the Internet atwitter. Multiple blogs have painted a target on Del Rey, whose previous musical incarnation as Lizzy Grant, her birth name, was almost entirely wiped from the Web. On the surface, her tactics could appear calculated: Del Rey's 2010 5 Points Records debut, Lizzy Grant aka Lana Del Ray, was on iTunes for only two months before vanishing from the store, while her website and social networking profiles were deleted and relaunched under her current guise.


    Has a major label been silently orchestrating one of 2011's greatest indie viral success stories? With her Del Rey debut, "Born to Die" (Interscope), arriving Jan. 31, the pillow-lipped singer/songwriter is the new year's buzziest commodity, becoming the first artist since Natalie Imbruglia in 1998 to play "Saturday Night Live" (Jan. 14) before releasing her first major-label LP. She's confirmed for "Late Night With David Letterman" on Feb. 2 and scheduled to appear on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" later the same month. Still, character assassination attempts on the Internet are a daily threat, even if acclaim outweighs the conspiracy theories.

    "The Internet's been well-established for 14 years," Del Rey says. "It's not like 1962 where you can't find out about me. My intention was never to transform into a different person. What other people think of me is none of my business. Sometimes, it hurts my feelings. But I have to just keep going. The good stuff is really good. Some of the other stuff is difficult, but I'll be able to tour now, probably sing for a while. That's nice for me."

    Sites like Hipster Runoff, which (at press time) has dedicated 29 posts to Del Rey since last September, have taken her integrity to task, needling her artistic reinvention and dissecting supposed misconceptions. From the start, Del Rey has felt the sting of Internet ire, which coincided with her rise in stature. "I began getting messages on my personal Twitter account, really creepy messages, like, 'The blogosphere that created you is about to destroy you,'" she says. "And within three days, the strangest things were happening." At @LanaDelRey, she has 93,000-plus followers. Her bio: Everything I want I have. Money, notoriety and rivieras -- I even think I found God -- in the flash bulbs of your pretty cameras. It's in all-caps.

    Many of the attacks question her personal history. Sharpening her octave-spanning pipes in a church choir, Del Rey initially came to New York as Grant, performing at open-mic nights with the likes of Lady Gaga (then known as Stefani Germanotta). She soon signed an indie deal with 5 Points Records to release debut EP Kill Kill in 2008, followed by her full-length, Lizzy Grant aka Lana Del Ray, on the imprint.

    The record, finished in 2008, collected dust for two years before its release. During a performance at the CMJ Music Marathon in 2009, she met her current manager, Ben Mawson, an entertainment lawyer (with the United Kingdom's SSB Solicitors) intent on untangling her contractual obligations. Contrary to reports, Mawson claims that he and co-manager Ed Millett had nothing to do with naming her, or dictating her direction, instead negotiating her out of her deal with 5 Points and agreeing on joint ownership of the album.

    "I'm a lawyer," says Mawson, also of Hear No Evil Management. "And if I gave her advice on dressing, it would not be right." His first move was to pull the album from iTunes two months after its release, so as not to confuse future consumers of music sold as Lana Del Rey's. He hopes to release it as a collection of B-sides and claims it's nothing that she's ashamed of, but is more surprised by the overanalysis of past decisions. "It's pretty crazy, this whole whirlwind of attention. Some of it's great, but obviously, there's been a lot of stuff -- which is basically total fancy -- about what she is and where she's come from."

    David Kahne, who produced Grant as well as albums for Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor and Kelly Clarkson, thinks otherwise. Agreeing to work with her in 2008 after 5 Points connected them, he witnessed the beginnings of her reinvention from a platinum blonde guitar-cradler to an alt-indie princess. Contrary to what Del Rey asserts, Kahne is under the impression that she bought the rights back from 5 Points to stifle future opportunities to distribute it--an echo of rumors that the action was part of a calculated strategy.

    "I think Lizzy Lana owns it, so [her team] wanted it out of circulation. That's why they bought the rights from them," Kahne says. "I think 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." He hasn't worked with her since 2008.

    To jump-start her transformation from Grant to Del Rey, she relocated to London and spent 2010 taking meetings with "every label," but, she says, she was repeatedly rejected. Though his work with Del Rey ceased after they recorded three post-album songs, including "Yayo" and "Gramma," Kahne observed the physical transformation that's become a focal point of criticism.

    "She looks different. [She] doesn't sound different to me, though," Kahne says. He claims that she was operatically trained, which Del Rey denies. But when it comes to songwriting, he praises her abilities. "She's a clever writer, but she definitely has a very powerful angle on the image, the perfume of the thing that she wants to be. I think she probably didn't feel that she was far enough into that, and by making this change, she's more like what she wanted to be in the first place."

    According to Del Rey, she wrote more than 70 songs during her time in England, and soon filmed DIY videos for "Diet Mtn. Dew" and "Video Games." A verbal agreement with Stranger Records to commercially release the latter gave Del Rey's camp wiggle room to reacquire the song rights in case of a major-label signing. "[It was] a very free single deal. If we got a record deal for an album, they would let her take the single back and get the rights back," Mawson says. "I just realized the other day we didn't sign anything... It was a verbal agreement from chatting and then we confirmed by email."

    Labels came full circle when the BBC's Radio 1 played "Video Games" last summer, thanks to Mawson's European connections, and her Internet buzz kick-started. The artist began fielding offers from imprints that previously denied her, deciding eventually on a joint deal with Interscope Records in the United States and Polydor Records in the United Kingdom without holding any grudges.

    "Signing someone and spending a lot of money, it's a very dangerous thing to do. Largest failure-to-success rate in any industry," Del Rey says. "I never had any help, and I really needed help."

    The timing of the deal and her video's viral release raised eyebrows in the blogosphere. News of her signing broke in late October, but the ink on the contracts had dried in July, fueling conspiracy theorists to assume that the machine had helped with the clearance of copyrighted material included in the videos and promoted her material. It's not unusual for labels to pull invisible strings for new artists, but rarely is the artist afforded both the creative and marketing freedom that Del Rey has had.

    It's here where her labels, which provided her a budget for videos and album completion, as well as hired a publicity firm (Shore Fire Media) in August, deviate from standard practices. Polydor president Ferdy Unger Gamilton says, "Apart from the strength of the song and the video [for "Video Games"], this shows how the world operates now. Something like this can just gather its own momentum. So many have been reached by it without traditional media or marketing."

    The viral factor of "Video Games" paralleled several breakout Internet sensations of 2011: Del Rey associate the Weeknd, and Frank Ocean. And for Del Rey, the gone-viral marketing method, which often hangs still on quality of music and artistic mystique, was key for convincing label executives wowed by her ability to navigate different Web cultures. She was embraced beyond genre lines, a Net star on sites like Stereogum and Pitchfork, and also popping up on sites like In Flex We Trust, MissInfo.tv and 2DopeBoyz.

    "I don't think she's any sort of heavy-handed marketer. I think she basically has it down from start to finish. That's what's the allure is, in terms of what I saw and what other people are seeing. You have an artist and it's all just so honest," Interscope executive VP of A&R Larry Jackson says. "There's no video treatment we've come up with. We haven't produced the records. It's 100% solely her. That's the most honest part. And that's all that matters. The honesty is the marketing."

    Translating her music to the live stage after a two-year hiatus, Del Rey tested new material at Brooklyn's Glasslands in September, taking the stage for a secret show under the alias Queen of Coney Island. Not meant for review, the gig drew criticism from attending writers, tipped off by rogue tweets, who criticized her shaky delivery and live band of session musicians.

    "I was noticeably scared," says Del Rey, who popped her gum into the microphone throughout the performance. "I don't get onstage trying to be spectacular. I act like it's sort of still about the singing for me, because that's all I have so far, are the songs."

    Del Rey didn't allow the litany of mostly harsh comments on YouTube clips from the show deter her. She upgraded her official New York debut to Bowery Ballroom, where she performed to a sold-out crowd, and then played to packed houses in London and Los Angeles. The reviews have turned laudatory. ("The comment-board fights and blog posts don't detract from the fact that she can actually sing," the Village Voice wrote of her Bowery gig.)

    On her tracks, Del Rey, who initially described herself as the "gangster Nancy Sinatra," disaffectedly intones about both eternal and finite romance over cinematic arrangements garnished with hip-hop drums. Though indie artists like Bon Iver and St. Vincent shape-shift to respectively appear on cuts by rappers like Kanye West and Kid Cudi, Del Rey casually massages hip-hop into her stand-alone compositions, working directly with such producers as Jeff Bhasker (West, Jay-Z) and Emile Haynie (Cudi). Bypassing the almighty guest feature has supplied her enveloping tracks with a unique twist on indie-pop.

    "I brought Emile in because the beats were still raw and hard to get... sort of the danger I wanted to incorporate," says Del Rey, who slings hip-hop slang ("You so fresh to death") on her cowgirl anthem "Blue Jeans." Friendships with the Weeknd's Abel Tesfaye bolster her hip-hop credibility, but it's her effortless infusions that punctuate her tunes. "She wanted to integrate hip-hop into it because she loves [it] and added some beats to make it a bit more radio-friendly and palatable for a broader audience," Mawson says.

    Just last month, the Internet fanfare reached new heights following the unauthorized leak of the intensely slick video for "Born to Die," making her a top trending topic on Twitter and earning praise from West, who broke his social network silence to post the clip to his account. For Del Rey, the relief wasn't the assurance of reaching a global audience, but rather having a budget for her art. "The good thing is that the record is beautiful. And I get to do so many things that I love. I get to work with [director Yoann] Lemoine and finally, I don't have to make my videos by myself anymore. Thank God. It's embarrassing," she says. "I'm just going to get help in all the right ways."

    For an artist whose homemade approach shifted her career out of obscurity, her labels aren't concerned with losing her indie prowess. "It's not about old-school label tactics and all of that crap. It's really about helping an artist who has a clear-cut vision for herself, really bringing the muscle to make this work on a worldwide level," Jackson says. Unger Gamilton adds: "The real brilliant artists move the mainstream toward them, not the other way around. She's doing something that no one else is doing, and it's just going to draw people in. It's already drawing people in."

    In anticipation of "Born to Die," the voluptuous-voiced songstress has been teasing the Web with sneak peeks of the project, releasing a graphic, found-footage video for "Off to the Races" and a YouTube clip of her song "Yayo." Her single, "Born to Die" was recently iTunes' Free Single of the Week. Del Rey also plans on "extensively touring" the international circuit through the new year. But she's almost entirely unplugged from the online realm, save for sporadic tweets and Facebook updates.

    "I'd rather it was just as simple as being just the songs and no one else talking about it at all, because it makes things more bittersweet instead of just clear and easy," she says. "It just seems to have taken a funny turn. I'm not really sure if it'll come back around. I don't know. But the record is really good. I have that."

    Lana Del Rey's Born To Die Leaks

    You remember that meme from a couple years back about how everything seems more epic when it's set to Sigur Rós music? That's a pretty nice way of summing up how I feel about Lana Del Rey's Born to Die album, which leaked Tuesday (January 24) and which you may very well be listening to on your computer/ mobile device at this very moment.


    Simply put, it is a record that is positively brimming with atmospherics — soaring, sonorous strings, echoing electronic boom-bap, morose, maudlin guitar crescendos — all of which imbue it with a truly epic (if not unnecessarily dramatic) scope. Del Rey's critics will undoubtedly point out that scope as nothing more than cover for her perceived shortcomings as a performer, but it still makes Born to Die a rather thrilling headphones experience. This is an album that sounds like it cost a million bucks to make — mostly because it probably did.

    This is not to say that Born to Die is a bad album — far from it. In fact, it's certainly w-a-a-y better than most would've expected (tellingly, even less will admit to that fact), and Del Rey does showcase some rather deft songwriting prowess — or at least a knack for penning a catchy chorus — particularly on the album's few bright moments, like "Off to the Races," "Diet MTN Dew" and "Radio."

    Holy shit. This album is a fucking masterpiece. I'm in love with all of the tracks- specifically "Summertime Sadness" and "National Anthem." I can't imagine having sex to this whole album- I've already done it to the first 4 tracks, haha.

    Re: Lana Del Rey

    MUSICALLY MISGUIDED Del Rey might strike gold on a few tracks, but the rest of her album lacks lyrically.

    After six months of fevered conjecture over the very existence of Lana Del Rey, the heavy-lidded chanteuse whose hypnotic ''Video Games'' fiercely divided the blogosphere last summer, it's still not clear exactly what the argument is. Do people dislike her because she's too ''sexy''? Is her apocryphal backstory — the supposed millionaire father, the alleged lip augmentations (which she denies), the name change from the more benign Lizzy Grant — the issue? Or is it just because she's scored a deluge of prerelease hype that, as her widely panned Jan. 14 appearance on Saturday Night Live showed, might not be deserved?

    Born to Die's wild swings between unqualified stunners and bizarre miscues provide no real answers, but they do produce plenty more chum for the message-board sharks. The stormy ''Dark Paradise'' and industrial-cabaret shimmy ''Million Dollar Man'' are both knockouts; like the best episodes of Twin Peaks, they're dark, lovely, and just a little bit corny.

    But when Del Rey falls, she really lays out: The flimsy melody propping up ''National Anthem'' collapses under its embarrassing faux-rap, and ''Radio'' takes a ''fame is hard'' stance normally reserved for Real Housewives. The rest play out like ''Summertime Sadness,'' which boasts both alluring melodic menace and lyrical eye-rollers like ''Telephone wires above all / Sizzlin' like your stare.'' Is Lana the real deal, or the result of a misguided attempt to build the perfect femme fatale out of Nico's leather jacket and Nicki Minaj's wig? All tabloid tawdriness aside, she unleashes some truly A-level songs. But its baffling failures drop Die to a middling, maddening C+.

    Best Tracks:
    A swirling anthem Dark Paradise
    Her enthralling breakthrough Video Games

    What an odd coincidence I'd see this thread tonight....

    I just listened to / watched her song "Video Games" tonight on LOGO, (shut-up ! I watch it from time to time...)

    And found it to be so, I dunno, "enchanting" I guess, that I actually stopped channel surfing for 4 minutes (unheard of...) just to listen to the entire song.

    I know *nothing* about her except the video I just saw, (kind of a cross between Amy Winehouse and Mazzy Star's, "Fade Into You") and I thought it was pretty damned good.

    It's not often a new artist catches my ear like that....

    And maybe a touch of Fionna Apple as well....

    Aside from all the negative press this album has received, I think this album is a fine "debut" for Lizzy/Lana/gangster Nancy Sinatra. The album is very cohesive and all the songs sounds as if they belong on that album. I am very impressed!

    I really like the album. I'm glad that she was much better on Letterman as compared to SNL.

    I wonder when she'll announce tour dates. I'm hoping she comes to Boston.

    i like the album quite a lot. dont get why the reviews are so bad, and i definitely dont get the pointless 'real/fake' discussion.

    i do agree however that id like her lyrics overall to be a little more genuine and a little less smart-assy.

    but its only her debut, she has still time to grow. and i love her voice and her style!

    I love Lana Del Ray and I want to sit on her giant lips... but I'm not particularly interested in seeing her perform live.
