Lana Del Rey confuses fans by tweeting about 'the farewell project'
Lana Del Rey has confused fans by referring to her upcoming short film 'Tropico' as "the farewell project".

The singer announced 'Tropico' at the end of July, writing on Twitter: "TROPICO - a 30 minute film coming to a city near you." She also unveiled a poster for the film crediting director Anthony Mandler, who worked with the singer on her 'Ride' video last year, and four music producers including Rick Rubin.

Yesterday (August 17) the singer used Twitter to unveil a new poster for 'Tropico' before writing: "I can't wait to see you at our premiers for Tropico at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and in NYC." She then posted the following rather ambiguous tweet.


The tweet drew a flurry of worried replies from fans saying things like "baby explain farewell", "WHAT DO YOU MEAN FAREWELL PROJECT???" and "HOLD UPPP... FAREWELL?!?! WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN". In typically enigmatic fashion, Del Rey has yet to tweet again since. She also failed to list the dates for the LA and New York premieres of 'Tropico'.

The singer has been the victim of a spate of song leaks recently and has revealed that some of them were intended for her new album. She has also admitted that the leaks could affect the album's tracklisting, saying: "I do feel discouraged, yeah. I don't really know what to put on the record. But I guess I could just put them on and see what happens."
