A clip of Lana Del Rey
performing “Young & Beautiful”
at a concert in Latvia on June 14 has surfaced and it’s every bit as dark and spellbinding as you would expect from the poster girl for doomed romance. It’s a fan-filmed video but the sound quality is surprisingly good. There’s something so brittle and fragile about the famed video gamer
that brakes your heart and makes even the simplest lyric sting like acid.
Lana’s contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack is by far her biggest hit in the US. The lush ballad peaked at number 22 – her first top 30 hit – and is well on its way to becoming her highest selling single. New material can’t come quick enough but performances like this make the wait bearable.
Let us know what you think of Lana’s Latvian lullaby in the comments.
