Lana Del Rey, ‘Bel Air’ – New Video
These days, Lana Del Rey makes videos like she’s paid to do it — oh wait, she is paid to do it. Regardless, the singer’s recent string of videos — including clips for ‘Ride,’ ‘National Anthem’ and ‘Summertime Sadness’ — have showcased an impressive eye for striking images, and her latest, for the Born To Die: Paradise Edition bonus track ‘Bel Air,’ continues the hit parade.
The tune ‘Bel Air’ pairs LDR once again with Dan Heath, who also co-wrote her breakthrough ‘Blue Jeans’ single. The accompanying video is a simple affair, as Lana, looking gorgeous as always, sings through plumes of smoke bathed in a variety of tones — vivid blue, deep purple, vibrant green, mellow yellow, classy black and white. An accompanying note on YouTube teases a new film due in 2013. “i lost my reputation, i forgot my truth. But i have my beauty and i have my youth,” reads the post. “TROPICO the film, coming next year.”
