Lana Del Rey's "I Can Fly" and "Big Eyes" from Tim Burton Film 'Big Eyes' Leak Online [LISTEN]
There are two new dreamy Lana Del Rey songs available to hear online. Today (Dec. 3), Del Rey's songs from Tim Burton's forthcoming film Big Eyes, "Big Eyes" and "I Can Fly" leaked in all their dreary, atmospheric glory.
"Big Eyes" - which received an official 60-second lyric video earlier this week - has been expanded into its full ethereal glory. The film's title track begins with a swell of strings, rising into the haunting a cappella melody, which finds Del Rey calling out a man with "big eyes and big lies," alongside some championing horns and big drums.
Though there are plenty of elements in "Big Eyes," the song is still typical Del Rey, with soft vocals and one big and blended sonic experience.
"I Can Fly" pulls heavily from its title, blending piano melodies with Del Rey's own airy voice. Unlike the bombastic and dark "Big Eyes," this song feels like a love anthem to oneself, with Del Rey standing up to her man - even if it's only in a dream.
"Your lies were hot kisses in the summer / I was dreaming of a lake, dreaming of the water / Where I'd rise like a phoenix or an iron from the fire / I've got things to tell you like I know that you're a liar," she sings with regretful hope in her voice.
"I Can Fly" and "Big Lies" are new songs from the upcoming Tim Burton film Big Eyes. The movie, which stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz will be released on Christmas Day.
