Lana Del Rey shocked a lot of her critics and vindicated a lot of her fans with her contribution to 'The Great Gatsby' soundtrack. 'Young and Beautiful' is an operatic, epic ballad, lush with orchestral arrangements. The demo version leaked, and it's notably different -- but still as beautiful as the title suggests.

Lana Del Rey songs made a splash on the pop music scene when the songstress released 'Born to Die' in 2012, but Ms. Rey is incredibly prolific, with lost tracks, demos, soundtrack tunes and special edition songs popping up online with increasing frequency. While much is made about her stunning good looks and her propensity for appearing on magazine covers, she does have a wealth of music to sift through.
Lana Del Rey covers the new Summer 2013 issue of Canada's Fashion Magazine. The singer, who has amassed cover after cover in her press kit, revealed details about her Scottish rocker boyfriend, admitting they kick each other's butts, musically speaking. She also shared what she always listens to when getting ready for cover shoots.
If the previews of Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby,' are any indication, coupled with the stellar choice of musical accompaniment, this movie is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated flicks of the year.
'The Great Gatsby' is shaping up to be an epic film, and the soundtrack, scored by Jay-Z himself, is following suit. In addition to wife Beyonce's cover of 'Back to Black' by Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Rey contributed a track called 'Young + Beautiful' -- and based on the preview, it's a swelling, emotional number unlike most of what we're used to hearing from the polarizing beauty. She may win over her naysayers after all!
