Review of Lana Del Rey – Born to Die: The Paradise Edition

It has been a memorable and meteoric 12 months for Lana Del Rey. She won Q Magazine’s Next Big Thing Award, received a much-coveted Ivor Novello Award and has since appeared on top shows across Europe and the US. Her refreshingly eclectic style has been praised in UK Vogue and New York Times’ T Style Magazine, and by the way she’s also graced a dozen covers including Billboard, Q, NME, UK Vogue and GQ, where she also won the accolade of “Woman Of The Year”.

Lana Del Rey re-releases her hit album Born To Die as The Paradise Edition, including the original, multi-platinum album plus eight new tracks. For Lana Del Rey fans, that’s an ear feast! And if you haven’t experienced Lana yet, Google ‘Lana Del Rey’ and experience not just an amazing voice but also the true art in her that is well depicted in her music videos including ‘National Anthem’ and of course, the new album’s first single “Ride”. “Ride”, produced by Rick Rubin, was recorded at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, CA, a former bordello in the 50s which became home to the likes of Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton.

The eight new songs on Born To Die -The Paradise Edition will also be available as a stand-alone digital and CD release titled Paradise. Confirmed to me from Universal Music Ireland, The complete set will be available in three formats: digital, double disc, and Deluxe Box set, which will include a remix CD, a video DVD, 7″ vinyl of Lana’s cover of “Blue Velvet,” and four art prints.
