Lana Del Rey announces 2013 Paradise UK Tour
New edition of Born To Die and EP of new tracks released for Christmas market, tickets on sale Monday 5th November
Describing anyone as a 'self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra' is brave at best, but oddly Lana Del Rey's proclamation does have a certain accurate ring to it. Her carefully-tailored image and sound harks back to an age of '50s movies, '60s sports-cars and '70s glamour, all rolled into a futuristic melange of upfront pop and sweet vocals.
The American singer has done pretty well out of it - her debut album, almost eponymously‚Ä"titled as "Lana Del Rey a.k.a. Lizzy Grant", offered a small slice of what she had to offer for the multi-platinum follow-up, "Born To Die", issued at the beginning of the year. The album has reached #1 in seven territories, the Top 3 in a handful of others and has ensured the singer's future could last considerably longer than most of the current breed of self-assured female (and male) singers.
With Christmas looming, cash-registers and online-servers are awaiting your money and what better way to do it than to dress up an old album and reissue it as a special edition? Rather than tack an extra song on the end of it, "Born To Die - Paradise Edition" has been given a thorough servicing in the form of (deep breath) EIGHT new songs plus, if you can fork out for the Deluxe version, art prints, DVD, 7" vinyl single, a remix CD AND an exclusive track on the iTunes version to boot. Oh, it'll also include the catchy new single "Ride".
To celebrate the release, Lana Del Rey has confirmed a return to the UK next year - called the Paradise Tour, the jaunt will concentrate on new songs and old classics and will start in Birmingham on 12th May 2013, followed by Glasgow, Hammersmith, Manchester and Dublin. We'll have tickets on sale from 10am Monday 5th November. Prices start at ¬£27.50.
