    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."
