Since the release of her "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" singles, 24-year-old singer/songwriter Elizabeth Grant, also known as Lana Del Ray, has become a sensation, and is considered to be a promising new face in the indie-pop realm. Recently signing to Interscope last month, NME reports that Del Ray will be officially releasing her debut album Born 2 Die on January 23, 2012.
Prior to the release of the album, Del Ray is planning on releasing her newest music video for "Born 2 Die." As stated on her Facebook wall, Del Ray collaborated with Woolkid for the song's video, as well as hiring a live tiger for the shoot.
"Tigers don't come cheap," she said. "It's a controversial video. You'll have to wait to see it, but I got a generous budget. I wasn't allowed to be alone with the tiger at any time, for obvious reasons. It was a special experience."
