Music of the Week – Lana Del Rey – Black Beauty

Lana del Rey is, in my opinion, one of the few interesting pop musician in these (quite sterile, artistically) years, one of the few with an original aestethic and imagenary in her work and not only some derivative and / or dull or, even worse, stupid stuff destinated straight to oblivion in a blink of an eye.
Of course, even talented people like Lana suffer from the decadence of the music business (and, overall, of the even worse fall in musical taste and sophistication in masses and mainstream critic) and her production has her flaws: too much songs, some of them too little polished etc, but it’s understandable and excusable, at least in my opinion.

This is an early leak from one of the songs that are now present in her Ultraviolence album, freshly released. Like all the best Lana’s songs, is a story of melancholy and difficult relationship.
