Lana Del Rey shocked her record label by having written enough songs to release three albums when they very first met her.

Born To Die, Lana's debut album, sold a huge 900,000 copies in its first week on sale. Polydor label boss Fergy Under-Hamilton, who signed Del Rey, talked to Music Week in between running a bath full of money.

"This all started because of the power of a song. As we speak, Video Games has spent eight or nine weeks in the UK Top 20."

Speaking about the wealth of material Del Rey is sitting on, Hamilton added: "This project would have undoubtedly been a disaster with that much attention if she didn't have 60 or so songs written when we signed her."

"She had three CDs-worth of songs written, with loads of brilliant tracks - enough for us to do the album and a deluxe and still have stuff left for later records. She's a really talented writer and a remarkable lyricist."

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Lana Del Rey is secretly dating Scottish rocker Barrie-James O'Neill.
