The Paradise Edition of Del Rey’s 2012 first effort, Born To Die, is a repackaging of the polarizing disc with eight new songs.
The revamped version of the album, which has sold just under 350,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 2.5 million worldwide, will hit stores on November 13. The eight new songs will be available as a stand-alone CD entitled Paradise, or in a double-disc set with the entire first album and the bonus disc, as well as a deluxe version, which will include both albums, an 8-track remix CD with six music videos and a two-track 7″ vinyl version of “Blue Velvet.”
The first single from the collection is the Rick Rubin-produced slow burn “Ride,” which was written by Del Rey and her “Video Games” collaborator Justin Parker. The other news songs on the collection include “American,” “Cola,” “Body Electric,” “Gods and Monsters,” “Yayo,” “Bel Air” and a cover of the 1950s classic “Blue Velvet,” which is being used as part of her H&M ad campaign.
