Lana Del Rey

Although she has been singing for a long time, Lana Del Rey had to wait for the release of the single Video Games to really explode with the general public. Enthralled by her universe with retro accents, the critics praise this young singer. Nourished by noble influences, Lana Del Rey pursues her path and dresses her universe with beautiful compositions often accompanied by neat clips.
As perfectionist as she is prolific, the artist released Paradise, her fourth EP, in November 2012 and it was an opportunity for her to showcase the Chateau Marmont, one of her favorite venues in Los Angeles. She poses for the needs of the cover on the terrace of this hotel so emblematic. She performed there, poolside, at a concert event for the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2012 Dinner and even sports a tattoo on her left arm in reference to this luxurious establishment.

The story of Lana Del Rey and the Chateau Marmont does not end there. In 2015, for the needs of a video she shoots alone with a VHS camcorder, she again chose the facility as a setting. The video will only be revealed some time later in a confidential way. He also appears in the video of the song Blue Jeans, more briefly in the one of Video Games and he is mentioned in the song Off to the Races. A place where Lana Del Rey enjoys cutting herself off from the hustle and bustle of the city, sheltered behind these walls with their prestigious reputation.
