Listen To Lana Del Rey's New Songs For Tim Burton's Film

Tim Burton's forthcoming film Big Eyes tells the story of American artist Margaret Keane. Keane's husband took the credit for her celebrated paintings of children with exaggerated big eyes; the story is one of betrayal, deceit, and emotional manipulation. Naturally Lana Del Rey was selected to contribute to the soundtrack, including the title track "Big Eyes," which will score a moment mid film. She has also contributed the phoenix-rising track "I Can Fly," which will play out the credits.

Del Rey's brand of doe-eyed danger is the perfect sonic aesthetic for Keane's story. The recurring theme of psychological abuse that surface in her music finds a context that grounds Del Rey's love-graphic lyrics. "I Can Fly" marks a moment for Del Rey: though it's charged with all the Hollywood sad-core trauma of "Young & Beautiful" (Del Rey's contribution to Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby), it is perhaps the only track she's laid that rests with the empowerment of the protagonist: "You had me so tied up / Thinkin' there's no other / Yeah right, yeah right."
