The Kickdrums – “Ridin'” (Feat. ASAP Rocky & Lana Del Rey)

Lana and Rocky hook up again for "Ridin'," a collaboration that was originally on production duo the Kickdrums' last mixtape but was later scrubbed so Rocky could consider it for his debut LP. Now, it rides again. Listen below. More »

Lana Del Rey – “National Anthem” Video (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

We've already seen the extended trailer for Lana Del Rey's "National Anthem," which features ASAP Rocky as John F. Kennedy and LDR as some sort of Jackie Kennedy/Marilyn Monroe hybrid. And now we've got the full eight-minute video for the transcendently dumb song, which is everything you'd expect. And the video, through good performances and… More »

Watch Lana Del Rey Debut “Body Electric” In L.A.

Last night, Lana Del Rey played a show at L.A.'s El Rey Theater, and during her set she debuted a new song called "Body Electric," a luxuriant slow-burner that seems to fit her whole style pretty much exactly. A string section backed her up, and the crowd made a whole lot of piercing drunk-asshole noise. More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Blue Jeans” (Lana Del Rey Cover) Video

The snappily-dressed British postpunker Eugene McGuinness has already shown a serious visual flair; we've posted his stark and striking videos for "Lion" and "Shotgun." And for some reason, he's chosen this moment to drop his cover of Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans"; apparently, there's some gas left in that tank. In the video, he strut… More »

Hear Lana Del Rey’s Debut LP As May Jailer

It's amazing that stuff like this can slip through the cracks even now, but word around the internet campfire this morning is that some unspecified amount of time ago, Lana Del Rey recorded an album called Sirens under the name May Jailer. This would predate the soon-to-be-reissued debut album Lana Del Rey A.K.A. Lizzy Grant,… More »

The Bravest Man In The Universe, soul legend Bobby Womack's first album of original songs in 18 years, is out next month. It's produced by Damon Albarn and XL's Richard Russell. We've already heard "Please Forgive My Heart" and the album's title track, and today we've got "Dayglo Reflection," a jazzy duet with Lana Del… More »

Old Lana Del Rey Keds Commercial Surfaces

For a second, a Keds commercial starring a young, blonde Lana Del Rey lived on YouTube, but it's been removed thanks to a UMG copyright claim. (Keds has confirmed that it was indeed LDR, though.) In it, she quotes Francis Ford Coppola ("If you sit down to write at the same time every day, the… More »

Duke A Cappella Group Does Lana Del Rey

Boy, was I ever dreading this blog-post assignment. Before actually clicking the link Scott sent over, I imagined that the Duke a cappella group would be the single most loathsome collection of people on the planet; that combination of words gives me douche-chills just by looking at it. But the group in question turns out… More »

Watch Lana Del Rey On The Voice UK

We recently saw Lana Del Rey in a pre-taped performance on American Idol. Earlier tonight she sang on another singing competition, The Voice UK, but the performance was taped yesterday. So live TV's not her thing -- Tom Jones still liked it. Watch below. More »

Lana Del Rey – “Blue Jeans (Smims&Belle Remix)” (Feat. Azealia Banks)

Smims&Belle is the new DJ project from Mark Foster and Isom Innis, two members of Foster The People. Judging by their first big remix, I'm delighted to note that they sound nothing like Foster The People. However, due warning: They do sound an awful lot like Swedish House Mafia or something. Credit them, however, with… More »

Lana Del Rey has compiled a video for the Born To Die cut "Carmen" that mixes old film clips with behind-the-scenes footage of her hanging out, looking glamorous. Her YouTube description: "BIO PIC." Watch below. More »

Lana Del Rey Covers Kasabian

Recently, Lana Del Rey recorded a session for BBC Radio's Live Lounge. Those sessions always include covers, and for hers, LDR took on "Goodbye Kiss," a song from the inexplicably-still-popular Brit-rock band Kasabian. I like her version better. Watch her recording it below. More »

Watch Lana Del Rey Perform “Carmen” Live For The First Time

Last night at London's Camden Jazz Cafe, Lana Del Rey played a small show for a crowd of contest-winners, and she used the opportunity to debut the Born To Die song "Carmen," singing over a tinkly piano and nothing else. Also of note: Her skimpy Guns N' Roses shirt, which is a pretty slick way… More »

John Mayer Covers Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey's transition from internet fame to something resembling actual real-life fame has been a bumpy and fascinating one. To wit: Last week, it was rumored that she was dating Marilyn Mason, which is not a good look. Today, we're seeing reports that she's actually dating Axl Rose, which is somehow even worse. And… More »

Lana Del Rey – “Blue Jeans (Blood Orange Remix)”

It's nice when remixer/remixee pairings actually make sense. As Blood Orange, Dev Hynes has lately been making washed-out, evocative synthpop, which makes him a natural to remix a song like Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans." Hynes adds ghostly keyboard tones and dramatic slow-motion pianos to the song, and it ends up as one of the… More »

Preview The Inevitable ASAP Rocky/Lana Del Rey Collab

Well, it's happened. Lana Del Rey and ASAP Rocky are on the same song, and the internet can now explode. Brooklyn production team the KickDrums recruited both controversy-baits for a song called "Ridin'," which has LDR going full-on Betty Boop and Rocky proclaiming Lana to be his "bitch." He is dating Iggy Azalea, so maybe… More »
