Listen: Lana Del Rey - "Is This Happiness"

Hear a lovely bonus track from the iTunes version of Ultraviolence.

I've wanted to write a Lana Del Rey / Laura Palmer thing, and I've wanted to write a Lana Del Rey / Valley of the Dolls thing, but then I get around to wondering why I'd do that when Lana just keeps doing it herself - listen to "Is This Happiness," a bonus track from her very-good new record Ultraviolence, in which Lana's in the Hollywood Hills taking and pushing violet pills with some dude who's "fucking crazy as the day is long," her singular voice feeling very delicate near the top of its register over a gentle piano line and some canned, eerie-as-fuck applause. Check it out.
