Listen To 2 New Lana Del Rey Songs From Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes'

Lana Del Rey fans were teased with just a snippet of one of her two songs for Tim Burton's upcoming film, Big Eyes, earlier this week. But now, not only do we get the full version of her title track, her other song, "I Can Fly," surfaced online today, too.

"Big Eyes," a big Hollywood-esque song in terms of its large orchestral arrangements and trumpeting sounds, will run midway through the film, according to Rolling Stone. "I Can Fly," is a more melodic tune with an angelic chorus (and personally our favorite of the two), that will be played during the end credits of the movie.

The lyrics for both tracks have to do a lot with lying and creeping around; it's fitting since Big Eyes is a biopic on American artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) and how her husband at the time, Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), claimed her famous artwork as his own during the 1960s. The film will be released in theaters on Dec. 25.

It's been a busy week for Del Rey as she recently announced her 2015 Endless Summer Tour, in which she'll be sharing the stage with rocker Courtney Love for eight of those shows, including one at the Hollywood Bowl on May 18.
