Lana Del Rey's Already Getting a Re-Release

Lana Del Rey's January debut Born to Die isn't even six months in the world and it's already got its re-release set. Spin writes that the "Paradise" edition of the No. 2 Billboard-charter will arrive this November, with something like a half-dozen unreleased songs tacked on.

Speaking to Australia's Nova FM, Del Rey said, "It's not a new album. It's more like an afterthought," adding "it's like seven new songs that kind of put a period on the statement I was making when I made the record." Two things real quick, Lana: 1) Annnd that's how you market a possibly superfluous re-release! 2) Why was the period not just placed at the end of Born to Die? There was that whole thing, just weeks after the album hit, where you said you were retiring.

But hey, when you're a newbie who hangs out with Marilyn Manson and you've got Boy George coming out with music videos covering your tunes, you can do whatever the f**k you want I guess.
