Del Rey's given name is Elizabeth Grant. She was raised in the small town of Lake Placid in rural New York State. Her father is a real estate investor, her mother an advertising account executive.
Lana Del Rey has been singing songs since she was 11. She began as the leader of a church choir and continued throughout her youth, eventually writing songs on the subway in New York City all night when she couldn't sleep.
When she was 15, Lana was sent to boarding school in Connecticut, an event that she recalls on the track "This Is What Makes Us Girls," where she reminisces about her schoolgirl gang.
