New Music: Lana Del Rey – “Young & Beautiful”

Stream Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful"

“Young & Beautiful,” Lana Del Rey’s new song for “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack, has just leaked.  And it’s gorgeous.

I haven’t always been a fan of Lana’s mush-mouthed angst, but this song is epic in every sense of the word.  When Lana sings, “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful? […] I know you will, I know you will, I know that you will,” you know she really means, “I hope that you will.”  Heartbreaking.  And yet, she still manages to work in a line about partying.  Bless her.

Stream “Young & Beautiful” via Tumblr or YouTube below and let me know what you think!
