Oh right, Lana Del Rey. The hugely hyped pop star didn’t quite take off the way the blogosphere predicted she would when she dropped Born To Die last year, but the music world loves nothing more than a good comeback story. And it seems like she’s going for broke this time out.
The singer has dropped an absolutely bonkers 27-minute short film entitled “Tropico,” which riffs on Bible stories in the most strange, surreal and bizarre way possible. So, of course, it’s a must watch. Anthony Mandler, attached to direct Daniel Radcliffe in “Tokyo Vice,” is at the helm. [Pitchfork]
