It seems like whenever you log onto the Internet nowadays, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll see New York City songwriter Lana Del Rey‘s name mentioned somewhere. Today was certainly no exception as just moments ago, BBC Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton premiered Lana’s newest single “Born 2 Die” from the upcoming debut album of the same name, which you can already check out below. The song has a somber tone, but according to Lana Del Rey herself, the song is a “homage to true love and a tribute to living life on the wild side.” I guess it’s for you to decide.
Lana Del Rey’s debut full-length Born 2 Die is expected to be released on January 30, 2012 via Interscope Records. This new single will reportedly be available a week earlier on January 23rd.
