EXCLUSIVE: New Lana Del Rey

Clips of two songs from her upcoming album Born To Die

Lana Del Rey’s debut album Born To Die is due for release at the end of this month (30th January), riding off a huge wave of equal adulation and suspicion.

Previous singles ‘Video Games’ (that song that ramped up the hype machine’s blood pressure to near rupturing point) and ‘Born To Die’ have both already been out there for quite some time. Now we’ve been given exclusive clips of two songs from the album for your listening pleasure. Earlier versions of the songs were previously leaked online, but these two – ‘National Anthem’ and ‘This Is What Makes Us Girls’ – are snippets of the final versions. Listen below, and read our Lana Del Rey interview as you do so.
