Lana Del Ray wants to die to Jeff Buckley's music as she thinks it would be the perfect soundtrack

Lana Del Ray wants to die to Jeff Buckley's music.

The 'Born To Die' singer says the late musician's songs - which include a cover of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' - would be the perfect soundtrack for when she leaves this Earth.

She said: "I'd probably die to Jeff Buckley, I guess there probably wouldn't be any other way. Good music.

"Good music to die to, send me on my way to heaven, heavenly voice, heavenly tunes. But I have a couple of records that are sort of near and dear to me, I really like Nirvana, I really like Bob Dylan, and I like Frank Sinatra, the voice."

Lana also revealed the origins of her exotic stage name as she wanted a moniker that would suit her music.

Lana - real name Elizabeth Grant - told Absolute Radio DJ Geoff Lloyd: "I just really wanted a name that was as beautiful as I thought the music was going to be. I was going with my sister a lot to Miami, we were spending time with our friends from Cuba, and I wanted something that sort of sounded like faded seaside glamour and that it was something that sounded beautiful, but sonically I just liked the way it sort of rolled off the tip of the tongue."

The full interview is aired next Wednesday (01.02.12) on Absolute Radio from 7pm.

Seductive, self-styled 'Hollywood sadcore' sounds from the pop siren of the moment.
