“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.
