He said to be cool but I’m already coolest.
Our social media timelines have been hijacked by unsettling political jabber for months now, but Lana Del Rey is here to save the day! The singer-songwriter has inspired Red Stylo Press to publish an anthology of stories based on her music, according to a press release obtained by BleedingCool. They claim comic book writer Mario Candelaria pitched the idea after indie comic book company Red Stylo saw success with Angel With a Bullet, a four issue series of stories inspired by singer Tom Waits.
Lana's story is titled Baroque Pop and features contributions from more than a dozen industry professionals. It will reportedly debut in April at C2E2.
BAROQUE POP is an eighty-page comic anthology produced by Mario Candelaria and is being released by Red Stylo Press. Inspired by the music of Lana Del Rey, Baroque Pop is a carefully curated selection of short form comics and illustrations celebrating love, loss, success, and change by comic creators who came together after finding mutual solace and inspiration in her music.
Baroque Pop is both an homage to Lana as well as a testament to the imagery and symbolism this modern day muse draws out of artists and writers. Her melodies invoke a sense of longing and wonder and endless hope. Mixed with instrumental tracks that feel cinematic in scope, her tunes practically invite the imagination to run wild painting tiny pictures with the emotions released in every bar, in every hook, until each album resembles a mosaic reflecting our deepest desires and secrets with each subsequent listening
In keeping with the music theme, the book itself will be printed at 7×7 inches to physically resemble a 45 RPM record cover.
The songstress has no official ties to the comic book right now, but hopefully it coincides with her new music. She's currently in the recording studio working on her forthcoming album, which could include a song titled "Young In Love" produced by Benny Blanco.
