We just got through sharing our thoughts on Lana Del Rey’s massively hyped Born To Die LP, and now we’re hearing that LDR is planning to re-release her 2010 album, under her Lizzy Grant album. According to the BBC, Del Rey has acquired the rights to the album (for a relatively low $10,000) and will be releasing it later this year.
“People act like it’s so shrouded in mystery, the ‘forgotten terrible album’,” said Del Rey. “But if you look on YouTube, all 13 tracks are available with millions of views, so it’s not like no-one’s heard them. We were all proud of it. It’s pretty good.”
We haven’t checked out the Lizzy Grant album ourselves, but the genuinely great album-closer, “Yayo,” has stayed with us for a few weeks.
