a note about this track

There's six weeks to go before the singer Lana Del Rey releases her major-label debut, and the backlash is already ferocious. The indie-blog haters insist she's fake, a cosmetically augmented poseur who is the oversexed product of major-label Machiavellis, without whom she'd be nothing. What's perhaps more accurate to say is that Del Rey knows the value of a glamorous persona.
