Lana Del Rey has recorded two songs for Tim Burton’s upcoming film Big Eyes.
The ‘Born to Die’ singer will feature on the film with title track ‘Big Eyes’ which will appear mid-movie and ‘I Can Fly’ which runs over the end credits.
Burton’s biographical movie, which stars five-time Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams and two-time winner Christoph Waltz, follows the story of American artist Margaret Keane whose husband took credit for her work.
Both songs have been reported to be written from the psychologically evolving viewpoint of Big Eyes’ heroine, Keane. Co-screenwriter and producer Larry Karaszewski has said: “Lana’s song expresses what Margaret is feeling so perfectly, it’s like a soliloquy of her inner thoughts”.
Big Eyes, which also stars Danny Huston and Terence Stamp, opens on Christmas Day (25 December) in the US and a day later in the UK.
