'''''Paradise''''' is the second major-label EP released by [[Lana Del Rey]], and her third EP overall. It was released on November 9, 2012 as both a stand-alone EP, as well as a part of the re-release with her first album, ''[[Born to Die (album)|Born to Die]]'', entitled ''Born to Die - The Paradise Edition''.
 
 
==Background==
 
 
After the release of her first major-label debut, ''Born to Die'', and its worldwide success, Lana returned to the studio to record new material. She announced on June 15, 2012, that she had begun work on a second album. She sang a snippet of "[[Young & Beautiful (song)|Young &amp; Beautiful]]", then titled "Will You Still Love Me", and also mentioned the song title of "[[Gods & Monsters (song)|In the Land of Gods &amp; Monsters]]". Later that month, on June 24, Lana performed "[[Body Electric (song)|Body Electric]]" for the first time and announced that it would be released on her next album.
 
 
On July 25, 2012, Lana announced her intentions to delay her second LP, and instead re-release ''Born to Die'' as a ''"Paradise Edition"''.
 
 
In the days leading up to the release, Lana released four fan made teaser images of songs from ''Paradise ''via twitter. These images included "[[American (song)|American]]", "Body Electric", "[[Blue Velvet (song)|Blue Velvet]]", and "Gods & Monsters".
 
 
==Recording==
 
 
For the EP, Lana worked with only three producers; [[Justin Parker]], [[Rick Nowels]], & [[Rick Rubin]], all of whom had previously worked with her on ''Born to Die''. Recording presumably began soon after the release of ''Born to Die'' and concluded in September, 2012.
 
 
==Promotion==
 
 
To promote the album, Lana began work with fashion brand, [[H&M]]. Her cover of the song "[[Blue Velvet (song)|Blue Velvet]]", which would later appear on the EP, was used in commercials for the company, and a music video was also recorded for the song. It was released as a promotional single on September 20, 2012.
 
 
On September 25, 2012, "[[Burning Desire (song)|Burning Desire]]" was released exclusively to those who had pre-ordered ''Born to Die - The Paradise Edition''. The next day, "[[Ride (song)|Ride]]" was released as the lead single from the EP. Simultaneously, Lana premiered a video entitled "''THE PARADISE EDITION''" featuring snippets of all the songs from the album, the video also included excess footage from the filming of "[[Summertime Sadness (song)|Summertime Sadness]]".
 
 
On October 10, 2012, the video for "Ride''"'', directed by [[Anthony Mandler]], was premiered at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, California, by Lana herself. The ten-minute video received polarized reviews but quickly garnered views on YouTube.
 
 
Lana released a promotional video for the song "[[Bel Air (song)|Bel Air]]" on November 8. The video features more excess footage from "Summertime Sadness", similar to the promotional Paradise Edition video.
 
 
On November 13, 2012, Lana announced that "[[Cola (song)|Cola]]" would serve as the EP's second single, but no release date was set and the release was scrapped.
 
 
Lana became a spokesperson for ''[[Jaguar]]'' in late 2012. It was announced that "Burning Desire" would serve as the company's official promotional song for it's new automobile, the F-Type. A music video for the song was released on [[2013/February|February 14]], 2013, and it was later released on [[2013/March|March 19]], 2013, as the EP's second promotional single.
 
 
==Artwork==
 
Del Rey revealed the artwork for ''The Paradise Edition'' via twitter on September 24, 2012, alongside a teaser video on YouTube.
 
The cover artwork for ''Paradise'' was shot by [[Nicole Nodland]] on the set of the "[[Blue Jeans (song)|Blue Jeans]]" music video shoot. The shot features Del Rey standing in front pool in a white swimsuit. The composition of the cover is reminiscent to that of ''Born To Die'', featuring identical font and font positioning, however it features metalic gold lettering instead of matte colors.
 
 
The cover for ''The Paradise Edition'' is similar, using the same photograph but with different text.
 
On physical copies of the deluxe boxset, the metalic gold lettering is replaced with actual gold foil.
