“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness.”

The long awaited video masterpiece by Lana Del Rey has finally arrived, after months of waiting fans were now graced with the infamous ‘farewell project’, saying goodbye to the Born To Die album NOT MUSIC! Starring alongside albino model Shaun Ross, Lana combines songs : Gods and Monsters, Body Electric and Bel Air which are all featured on Born To Die: The Paradise Edition.

In the 27 minute long, short film Del Rey plays an array of different personas from Eve in the Garden of Eden to a pole dancer in a seedy club, to create the beautiful visual imagery featured. At the LA premier last night, Lana announced that her next album will be titled Ultraviolence, but currently there is no indication of when it’ll be released – just that it exists which is good enough for me!

Directed by Anthony Mandler, Tropico is a musical paradise in which Lana pays homage to her idols: Elvis and Marilyn. Whilst also showing her religious side by playing the Virgin Mary and begging for forgiveness for her sins.

We can only hope that Ultraviolence can fill the shoes of Born To Die, if you’re not familiar with some of the Lana’s previous videos then here are a few of my favourites…
