Lana Del Rey will bring her retro glamour and quasi-cabaret balladry to Saturday Night Live on January 14th. The singer, who will be making her first television appearance in the United States, will appear alongside host Daniel Radcliffe.
Though Del Rey's debut album, Born to Die, isn't scheduled to hit stores until January 31st, buzz for the singer has hit a fever pitch in recent weeks. She emerged seemingly from out of nowhere earlier this year with a lo-fi video for her song "Video Games," which made her a hot topic on indie blogs. More recently, she played a handful of concerts in New York City and Los Angeles, and her video for "Born to Die" became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter immediately upon leaking to the internet. (Kanye West offered his seal of approval for the video in a tweet over the weekend.)
It remains to be seen whether or not Del Rey will be joined on the SNL stage by the tigers she shares screen time with in the "Born to Die" video, which you can watch below.
