"I'm tired of feeling like I'm f**king crazy," Lana Del Rey admits on her latest single. Given the year she's had - which has seen her catapulted to worldwide fame, top album charts across the globe and have her every note, pose and performance scrutinised to the highest degree - few could blame her for feeling a tad on the edgy side.
'Ride', which heads up the deluxe 'Paradise Edition' of her debut, sees her finding a moment to take stock of it all. "Singing blues has been getting old," she confesses over a melody of grand orchestral strings and dreamy piano, before admitting: "I've been trying too hard with one pretty song." The result is a blissful soul-pop ballad that polishes up her quirks for her most accomplished effort yet.
