I have basically been waiting to post this for WEEKS. Seeing Lana perform the lyrically outstanding Born To Die a couple of weeks back at Shoreditch House was absolutely one of the most enchanting live music experiences ever. Here is the final and official audio for the album’s title track – due out on 23 January 2012. The loop footage used appears to be part of the video, shot in Paris by one of the most brilliant film and music directors of the moment – Yoanne Lemoine. The clip features model Bradley Soileau. The final clip is set to drop later this month and the full album on 30 January. My one, tiny irk, is the fact that this version has lost the lyric, “Let me fuck you hard in the pouring rain”, which was one of my favourite lyrics from the live version. Let’s hope it is included in the remix EP which will include mixes from Damon Albarn, Woodkid and Clams Casino.

Thank you Lana.
