BBio
Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, professionally known as Lana Del Rey, was born in New York City, New York, on June 21, 1985. She was raised in Lake Placid, New York, with her brother Charlie and sister Chuck. She began writing music after learning guitar from her uncle at age 18, and while still in school in New York, began performing at many underground clubs. She recorded her first record, Sirens in 2006, under the pseudonym May Jailer. In 2008, she collaborated with David Kahne to put out her first studio album, Lana Del Ray, which was released on January 4, 2010. Though critical reception for the record was positive at the time, it was pulled from online retailers when Del Rey changed management and started focusing on gaining a major record deal. Del Rey soon bought back the rights to the record. In late 2011, she recorded "Video Games" with Justin Parker, and posted the video to her YouTube channel. The song and video garnered instant attention and sparked record deals with Stranger, Interscope, and Polydor. She released her major-label debut, Born to Die, on January 27, 2012. Its singles, including "Blue Jeans" and "National Anthem", helped Del Rey expand her fanbase. In the summer of 2012, Del Rey worked with both H&M and Jaguar to become a spokesperson for their products. She re-released Born to Die with 8 new tracks, as well as a standalone EP, Paradise, on November 9, 2012. Del Rey then began her foray into soundtracks, releasing "Young and Beautiful" in April, 2013, for the film The Great Gatsby, then "Once Upon a Dream" in January, 2014, for ‘’Maleficent’’. On June 13, 2014, she released her sophomore major-label album, Ultraviolence, featuring the singles "West Coast", "Ultraviolence" and "Black Beauty". The album was received warmly by critics who appreciated her shift towards a rawer sound. Del Rey contributed to another soundtrack in late 2014, recording two songs, "Big Eyes" and "I Can Fly", for the film Big Eyes. On September 18, 2015, Del Rey released her third major-label album, Honeymoon, which was preceded by two singles, "High By the Beach" and "Music to Watch Boys To". Critics noted that the record was another change for Del Rey, featuring trap influences and a lush sound that contrasted sharply from her previous album. On July 21, 2017, Del Rey released her fourth major-label album, Lust for Life. The album featured the singles "Love", "Lust for Life" (featuring The Weeknd), "Coachella - Woodstock In My Mind", "Summer Bummer" (featuring A$AP Rocky & Playboi Carti), and "Groupie Love" (also featuring A$AP Rocky). About Lust for Life, Del Rey stated, "I made my first 4 albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed." The album was widely appreciated by both fans and critics, who praised it for its modernized sound and lyrics, which exemplified a newfound lightness and change in Del Rey's artistry.
