Lana Del Rey to re-release her debut ‘Lizzy Grant’ album

The 'Video Games' singer released her first album in 2010

Lana Del Rey is set to re-release her original debut album, which was officially released in 2010 under her real name, Lizzie Grant.

The ‘Born To Die’ singer has said that she has bought the rights to record and will be putting it out later this year. She said to BBC News: “I’m re-releasing it, maybe in late summer.”

The album cost $10,000 (£6363) to record and was produced by David Kahne (Regina Spektor). It was available on iTunes for two months before being taken down.


“People act like it’s so shrouded in mystery, the ‘forgotten terrible album’,” said Del Rey. “But if you look on YouTube, all 13 tracks are available with millions of views, so it’s not like no-one’s heard them. We were all proud of it. It’s pretty good.”

Lana Del Rey is set to score a Top 10 hit this Sunday (January 29) with her new single ‘Born To Die’. The single, which is also the title track from her first album under the name Lana Del Rey, was at Number 10 in the Official UK Singles Chart earlier this week. She releases the album on January 30.
