The film will be released at Christmas
A preview of Lana Del Rey‘s new track ‘Big Eyes’, taken from a forthcoming Tim Burton movie of the same name, is now airing online.
The film tells the story of American artist Margaret Keane, whose paintings (characterised by their illustrations of large eyeballs) were falsely credited to her husband. The movie will hit cinemas at Christmas.
“Lana’s song expresses what Margaret is feeling so perfectly, it’s like a soliloquy of her inner thoughts,” the film’s producer Larry Karaszewski said of the track in question. You can listen to a preview of it in the clip below.
As previously reported, Del Rey has also recorded another song called ‘I Can Fly’ for the soundtrack.
Yesterday it was announced that Lana Del Rey will tour the US with Courtney Love in 2015. The two acts will tour together as part of the Endless Summer Tour. The joint stint will begin at the Woodlands Festival in Texas, before heading to Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and other cities.
Love had previously told an Australian news website that she “would work” with either Lana Del Rey or Miley Cyrus if the opportunities arose.
Love said in July: “I am not pop but I have a lot of friends on social media and friends who are pop stars. There’s just not a lot of rock’n’roll girls out there, so for whatever reason (pop stars) look up to me. And I have a distinctive voice and it might sound cool if it’s the right song.”
