Indie pop singer Lana Del Rey revealed some more details about her new mini-movie, "Tropico," on Saturday. Del Rey promises to premiere what she calls a "farewell project" soon in Hollywood and New York.
Del Rey has been teasing her "Tropico" mini-movie since last month with different movie posters. She uploaded a new one to her Twitter account today, which shows the singer looking like the Virgin Mary from the Bible. Later tweets from her revealed special screening locations for "Tropico."
"I can't wait to see you at our premiers for Tropico at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and in NYC," she wrote on Twitter.
No release date has yet been announced, but fans can expect some music from Del Rey's "Paradise" EP to be featured in the project. The 30-minute film will see a new story unfold to her songs "Bel Air," "Gods & Monsters," and "Body Electric." Apparently, the project will also signal some sort of farewell.
"Looking forward to seeing you for the farewell project. I adore you and thank you for inspiring me. TROPICO," she further wrote on Twitter.
Some fans are afraid that Del Rey will say goodbye for good after "Tropico," but others believe it will only mean an end to the "Born to Die" album era that she's been pushing since January 2012. After all, in a recent interview, Lana did say that she is slowly but surely working on some new music for another album.
In other Del Rey news, she and Cedric Gervais recently hit the top 20 on Billboard's Hot 100 with the house remix of "Summertime Sadness." It currently sits at no. 16 on the all-genre music chart, which is Lana's highest peak in the U.S. yet.
Del Rey should announce the premiere dates for "Tropico" soon on her Twitter account.
