Describing her music as Hollywood Sadcore, Lana Del Rey is truly one-of-a-kind. On 2012's debut album 'BORN TO DIE', Del Rey's songs came out of a mixture of her love of David Lynch, Black and White 50’s movies, Coney Island, Hip-Hop and heartbreak. She has since gone on to win 2 BRIT awards, a Grammy and an Ivor Novello Award and has sold over 6 million albums worldwide.
2013 was an incredible year for Lana Del Rey. Highlights include the release of her PLATINUM-certified original song "Young and Beautiful,” her Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Summertime Sadness (Lana Del Rey Vs. Cedric Gervais Remix)," her “transcendent” (LA Times) 30-minute short film 'Tropico' directed by Anthony Mandler, a sold-out headlining European tour, and a "triumphant" (Billboard) performance at Lollapalooza.
At the Grammys on January 26, the Cedric Gervais remix of Lana’s “Summertime Sadness” won for Best Remixed Recording. Lana’s ‘Paradise’ (Interscope/Polydor) was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and her original song "Young and Beautiful" for Baz Lurhmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack was nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Del Rey is currently putting the finishing touches on her new album 'ULTRAVIOLENCE' and is in the middle of her sold-out US headline tour.
