Featuring the singer reciting what appears to be a prayer, the video clip is the first fans have seen of ‘Tropico’ and the last time Lana spoke about the project was via her Twitter account in August this year.
At just 12-seconds long, the clip doesn’t include much action, mysteriously showing the ‘Blue Jeans’ starlet mumuring “Dear John, forgive us our sins” before cutting to a shot of an actor in a cowboy costume wielding a shotgun.
Lana, real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, has previously described the film as “Elvis and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one” and announcing on Twitter in the summer that she would be premiering the film at LA’s Hollywood Forever cemetry and an undisclosed New York City location.
A poster for ‘Tropico’, also posted on Twitter, explained the film would be soundtracked by and star Lana with the tagline: “A tale of redemption told to the music of Body Electric, Gods And Monsters, Bel Air.” The film is being co-produced by Rick Rubin and stars model Shaun Ross alongside the singer.

Lana is currently working on her second studio album, though she’s admitted having problems finding inspiration while song-writing and has no idea when the record will be ready for release. “When people ask me about it, I just have to be honest — I really don’t know,” she told Nylon. “I don’t want to say, ‘Yeah, definitely — the next one’s better than this one,’ because I don’t really hear a next one. My muse is very fickle. She only comes to me sometimes, which is annoying.”
Her debut album ‘Born To Die’ catapulted the starlet to fame when it reached the number one spot in eleven countries with Lana going on to win awards including the GQ Woman Of The Year Award in 2012 and the International Breakthrough prize at the BRIT Awards in the same year.
