Lana Del Rey | Tropico (NSFW)
Marilyn, Jesus and Elvis, OH MY!
For Lana Del Rey fans, this is a long-anticipated day. For everyone else, this 27 minute glorified music video marauding as a short film is probably not your entry point into her world. Personally, I loved the lengthy video for single “Ride.” with its pretentious, breathy voice overs from Del Rey, and this is really just an extension of that…from a few—OK ten—minutes to almost half-an-hour. I should find that obnoxious perhaps, but the gangster Nancy Sinatra and her pouty full-lipped persona—real or not—possessed my musical soul way back with “video games” and she still just won’t let go.
Also, at the premiere for “Tropico,”Lana announced her new album will be called Ultraviolence and it will be out “soon.”
