Last month, Lana Del Rey announced a short film called Tropico. The 30-minute film is being directed by “Ride” director Anthony Mandler, produced by Rick Rubin, and set to the music of three songs: “Body Electric,” “Gods and Monsters,” and “Bel Air.” Her sister, Chuck Grant, is the director of photography.
Yesterday, after sharing more art for the film, Lana referred to Tropico as a “farewell project.” She tweeted, “Looking forward to seeing you for the farewell project. I adore you and thank you for inspiring me.” There’s no official word on what this means. Some are interpreting it as a final goodbye to music, while others believe it simply means goodbye to her debut album Born To Die or that “farewell” is the theme to her short film.
Check out some of the artwork above, see her cryptic tweets, and get ready for the farewell project, which still has no release date but will be premiered at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and in New York City.
