Your tears don't shake my world like Britney Spears.

Lana Del Rey – Live on BBC Radio 6

Controversial rising popstar Lana Del Rey did her first ever UK radio session today for BBC Radio 6, joining Huey Morgan for a chat and performing acoustic renditions of “Video Games” and “Born To Die”. And yes, she sounds just fine and at ease with herself – not that this evidence will stop the online vitriol though, unfortunately. You can stream the full session and interview on BBC, but if you’re not UK-based and can’t access it, I have ripped both songs for your convenience. Listen and download the utterly lovely session below.

My modest advice for future live TV performances? Get a stool, honey. Maybe stand up for the last chorus – no one would see it coming. It works for Westlife after all.

 

Make sure to read Popjustice’s brilliant piece on her.

“Born To Die” is out now in the UK.
The Damon Albarn remix is also out. Beware, it’s disappointing.

  2. Wow. I thought the Video Games single was great and perhaps a one hit wonder. She’s got earthiness to her voice. Great quality recording. Thanks for sharing (oh, and caring).
