Lana Del Rey’s music will reportedly appear in the upcoming season of American Horror Story, though the singer won’t perform the song herself.
According to series mastermind Ryan Murphy, AHS star Jessica Lange will tackle a Lana Del Rey song at some point during Freak Show. Unfortunately for those who need more information about the tune at this exact moment, Murphy stopped short of revealing which one of Lana’s creations the actress will cover.
According to Vulture, the series creator revealed the news during a recent post on Twitter. When one fan admitted that she was having trouble getting past Freak Show’s penchant for scary clowns, Ryan dropped the Lana Del Rey-shaped bombshell.
@ttbradley Tina, don’t be afraid! The clown is scary, true. But don’t you wanna see Jessica Lange sing a Lana Del Rey song?

Not surprisingly, Lana Del Rey fans kind of freaked out. In fact, some were rendered entirely speechless by the sudden revelation.

Although Ryan Murphy stopped short of revealing which Lana Del Rey tune will appear in American Horror Story: Freak Show, that isn’t stopping folks from coughing up a few suggestions. In fact, Idolator scribe Robbie Daw thinks Jessica Lange should wrap her pipes around “Dark Paradise,” “Cruel World,” “Gods & Monsters,” or “Cola.”
If you need even more Lana Del Rey-related spookiness to compliment the upcoming horror series, then perhaps you need to start talking to your neighborhood scalper about scoring tickets to the singer’s upcoming shows in Los Angeles. The Inquisitr previously reported that Lana will perform two gigs at the historic Hollywood Forever Cemetery later this month. Unfortunately, both shows are sold out.
Unfamiliar with this location? Here’s a quick history lesson.
“Hollywood Forever is a cemetery unlike any other in the world. One of the world’s most fascinating landmarks, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place to more of Hollywood’s founders and stars than anywhere else on earth. Founded in 1899, the cemetery was an integral part of the growth of early Hollywood. Paramount Studios was built on the back half of the original Hollywood Cemetery, where the studio is still in operation today. The cemetery of choice for most of the founders of Hollywood’s great studios, as well as writers, directors, and, performers, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.”
