We’re already pretty excited about the upcoming non-fiction Tim Burton drama Big Eyes, partially because it’s a film about San Francisco artist Margaret Keane and her husband Walter (who took credit for her work), but also because it stars two of our favorite actors, Amy Adams and Inglourious Basterds‘ Christoph Waltz.
Obviously, then, we consider it a huge bonus that Lana Del Rey has now added her sultry signature to the mix.
The singer has premiered two songs for the film. The first, called “Big Eyes”, named for some of Keane’s famous paintings, is eerie and dramatic, with sweeping string symphonics and goosebump-inducing lines, like the too real “It’s amazing what women in love will do.”
The next track is a somber ballad, called “I Can Fly” (which Rolling Stone reports will play midway through the film), channels the trapped feeling of being torn between a lover’s trust and your own dignity.
Want to hear Del Rey live? Catch her on the road next Spring when she hits the Shoreline Ampitheatre May 20 with Courtney Love.
