Book Lana Del Rey
Singer – USA
Lana Del Rey broke through with the release of her single ‘Video Games’ in 2011. Since then, Lana’s offstage identity has been the subject of much discussion and intrigue. Lana Del Rey released an EP in 2008 entitled ‘Kill Kill’ and in January 2010, released a full length album. The album was entitled Lana Del Rey but at the time, she was recording under her own name, Lizzy Grant.
In June 2011, Lana Del Rey signed to Stranger Records, who are also home to Thomas Tantrum and Penguin Prison. However, when her debut single, ‘Video Games’ was released, she then signed to Interscope Records. She said at the time that ‘Video Games’ was her favourite track, hence posting it online but it was not originally intended to be the lead single.
Media attention surrounding Lana Del Rey began to snowball and by the end of October 2011, Q magazine announced that she would be the recipient of their ‘Next Big Thing’ award. She promoted the single with a number of live performances, including playing the Bowery Ballroom in New York and on MTV Push.
Born to Die, the debut album recorded under the name Lana Del Rey was released in January 2012, after the title track became the second single. On 14th January, she made her debut live US TV appearance on Saturday Night Live. At the start of 2012, Lana Del Rey had already been nominated for a MTV Brand New award and the International Breakthrough Act at the 2012 BRIT Awards.
