Lana Del Rey releases Blue Velvet video


Lana Del Rey has released her new video for “Blue Velvet.”

Directed by Johan Renck, portions of the full video have been used to create tv commercials for clothing giant H&M.

Del Rey is the face of the company’s new fall advertising campaign; she’ll be seen in commercials and print ads wearing the best of H&M’s Fall fashion line.

“We are excited to have Lana Del Rey, the new star and style icon, as the face of our fall campaign,” said H&M Creative Director Donald Schneider. “Lana is totally unique, and we wanted to create a print and film campaign that's just as special. The mood is very L.A. noir and is inspired by our Fall collection, which also fits with Lana’s own personal style. The commercial that accompanies the campaign is like a mini-film, with a fantastic plot and Lana performing a cover of ‘Blue Velvet.’ There’s never been a TV commercial that’s looked anything like this.”

“Blue Velvet” was written in the 1950s, and became a Top 20 hit for Tony Bennett in 1951. The most popular recording of the song is that of Bobby Vinton, which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 21, 1963, and held the top spot for three weeks.

Lana Del Rey is the new face of Jaguar




Lana Del Rey has been announced as the new face of Jaguar as part of the automaker’s launch plans for the Jaguar F-TYPE.

The new sports car model will be revealed in Paris next month.

"Singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey will collaborate with Jaguar on the launch of the all-new F-TYPE, a two-seater sports car that is a vivid representation of the vitality of the Jaguar brand,” said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director for Jaguar. “The allure of Jaguar is in large part due to its duality - a unique blend of authenticity and modernity, two values that we believe are shared with Lana in her professional achievements."

More details about the Del Rey-Jaguar deal will be released at a later date.

Jaguar was instrumental in creating the two-seater sports car market with famous models such as the C-Type, D-Type and E-type. This sporting bloodline is continued with the all-new Jaguar F-TYPE.

Four unreleased songs by Lana Del Rey surface online


Lana Del Rey is set to reissue her album, “Born To Die,” complete with seven bonus tracks, this November.

“It’s not a new album, it’s more like an afterthought,” Del Rey told Nova FM while in Australia for a series of concert dates recently. “It’s ‘The Paradise Edition’ of ‘Born to Die.’ It’s like seven new songs that kind of put a period on the statement I was making when I was making the record … just a final thought on that … it’s beautiful.”

Now, four songs from the “Paradise Edition” have leaked online.

The tracks include “Ooh Baby,” “Serial Killer,” “Summer Of Sam” and “Ghetto Baby,” a song written by Del Rey but originally recorded and released by UK singer Cheryl Cole.

Courtney Love snaps over Lana Del Rey’s Nirvana cover


Lana Del Rey performed a cover of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” during a recent show in Sydney, Australia.

Video of Del Rey’s version has been online for a few days and, on Monday, Courtney Love fired off some strange and nasty tweets to the pop singer.

“@LanaDelRey you do know the song is about my Vagina right? throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back umm,” wrote Love in her first note.

Continuing to ramble, Courtney tweeted, “@LanaDelRey on top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina i contributed,” followed by “@LanaDelRey so umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you? lol xc”

Love’s tweets were eventually deleted from her twitter feed.

“Heart-Shaped Box” was the first single from Nirvana’s 1993 album, “In Utero.” The song is credited to Kurt Cobain, so it’s unclear why Courtney feels that she helped write the lyrics to the track.

There appears to have been no reply from Del Rey in response to Love’s notes.
