This is it, Lana-fans: Ms Del Rey has at last given us the cold facts on her long-feted new short film ‘Tropico’.

It transpires that the mini-movie accompanies a new EP which will feature the tracks ‘Body Electric’, ‘Gods And Monsters’ and ‘Bel Air’. And if those titles look familiar it’s because Lana released them via the ‘Paradise Edition’ of her first and perhaps last LP, ‘Born To Die’.

‘Tropico’ will have a digital release on 5 Dec. This is its trailer:

In adjacent Del Rey news, the singer has given $10,000 (via Kickstarter) to help get Daniel Johnston’s previously reported short film ‘Hi, How Are You’ released. Lana apparently received a “signed Smurf ukulele” and an executive producer credit on the movie project for her troubles.
