Early Lana Del Rey Demos Leak

(Radio.com) Lana Del Rey is known for her retro style that she likes to call "gangster Nancy Sinatra." But there was a time long, long ago (we're talking pre-Lizzy Grant era) when Del Rey was still trying to find her sound. It's a time that Del Rey probably wouldn't want fans to know about. Unfortunately, Princess Superstar didn't feel the same way.

The producer has released three tracks and one remix from a 2009 recording session she had with Del Rey, according to SPIN. Though the songs were never released, they show an early sign of what was to come from the singer.

On "Maha Maha," which translates to "great," she croons (not always on key, unfortunately) like a lounge singer over a highly produced beat that has a bit of Middle Eastern influence.

With the spacey track "Catch And Release," Del Rey seems like she was going for something a little Pink Floyd-inspired to focus on her current favorite topic, old Hollywood glamour. "If you've got the cash, lock it down tight/ I've got the looks. You've got my heart right?" she sings over a droning beat.

Her track "Golden Grill" starts with a cacophony of fake horns before eventually going into an operatic solo from Del Rey. more on this story
