Lana Del Rey is currently touring in Australia, and she recently sat down for an interview with NovaFM, revealing that she plans to re-release ‘Born to Die’ with seven new tracks.

“It’s not a new album, it’s more like an afterthought,” she said. “It’s ‘The Paradise Edition’ of ‘Born to Die.’ It’s like seven new songs that kind of put a period on the statement I was making when I was making the record … just a final thought on that … it’s beautiful.”

Del Rey added that she’s been slowly writing since the release of her sophomore album, and has been pursing her “original passion and hope” — scoring music for films. She explained that her best friend is a composer and has been helping her do “quiet work for movies.”

“It’s the only thing I actually wanted to do. I always wanted to score films,” she told the Herald Sun. “Some of the most brilliant people have reached out to me to score their movies. That’s the world I live in. I was never very good all the way up front, but behind the scenes I always did a good job because I always knew what to do, I knew how to match the visuals with the music. That is something I feel excited about, hopefully that will become where things go in the future.”

The 26-year-old singer is in Australia all week, and will wrap her sold out tour with a performance at Splendour in the Grass this Saturday (July 28). The ‘Paradise Edition’ of ‘Born to Die’ is slated for a November release.
