Lana Del Rey is known for her haunting, sometimes melancholy ballads, and her new song is no different. The singer gave fans a bit of a teaser for the song “Life Is Beautiful”, which is featured in the film The Age Of Adaline, in a recent trailer for the film.
The movie focuses on Blake Lively’s character, Adaline, who has an accident that leaves her unable to age. Throughout the decades, she becomes a mother and lives through several eras, witnessing history unfold as her loved ones continue to grow older. Harrison Ford also stars, and the song is the perfect score to the haunting imagery of the trailer, with lyrics such as “We don’t have to fight/Where we’re going/We can go anywhere/Right now.”
Lana Del Rey shared the video on Twitter, calling the film “magical”.
