Original (January 24): It looks like Lana Del Rey has a surprise up her sleeve for tomorrow—and it’s very likely that surprise will come in the form of a video.
Earlier today, the “High by the Beach” songstress posted a photo of the Italian January 2016 cover of Rolling Stone magazine, featured famed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino on the cover, along with her own name also featured in the top left corner of the magazine cover. She teasingly captioned the photo, “Tomorrow I’ve got a surprise for you,” along with a video camera emoji, hinting that a video very well may be set to drop on January 25.
Despite the hint, there are still so many questions as to what Lana has planned for tomorrow. For instance, why post a photo of Quentin Tarantino on the cover of Rolling Stone? Is the music video she’s likely about to release directed by Tarantino? If so, what song is it for? Or does Tarantino make a guest appearance in her video? Is the video somehow in partnership with Rolling Stone?
Or could it be possible that Lana is joining the cast of a TBA Tarantino film? Because, lets face it, that would be so awesome. From Lana’s gloomy Old Hollywood atmosphere to Tarantino’s eccentric, vintage-loving film style, the two were practically made for one another.
Then again, Lana may have just really liked the picture and that’s why she chose it. Not likely though.
In any event, we’ll have to wait and see what surprise tomorrow—and Lana—brings us. We wait with bated breath.
