Lana Del Rey performed at the El Rey theater in Los Angeles last night, and the Born To Die songstress premiered a new song called “Body Electric”. Could it be inspired by the Walt Whitman poem? The Twilight Zone episode? Or perhaps the final song in 80s movie musical Fame? No matters its inspiration, the slow-burning, sultry tune sounds 100% Lana, who looked adorable in a white cocktail dress as she was backed by a live string section and a screen depicting underwater images from her “Blue Jeans” video. Watch Lana’s live performance above, and tell us — have you ever heard a crowd scream so loudly for someone simply bending down then getting back up? Crazy.
