Watch Lana Del Rey’s Unreleased Video for ‘Honeymoon’
In the digital world, it's almost impossible to keep things under wraps anymore. The latest piece of pop culture to prove this is the video for the title track to Lana Del Rey's 2015 album Honeymoon, which is embedded above.
NME reports that, although it has never been given an official airing, Del Rey has twice teased its existence, posting a couple of snippets of it on Instagram. The first time was shortly after Honeymoon's release, and she did it again three months ago, this time with the caption, "Never put it out because nothing really happened in it."
She may have been right. Thanks to someone calling themselves "Amateur Videos" and has posted nothing but Del Rey clips, we can judge for ourselves. As you can see above, the clip features close-ups of Del Rey putting on makeup and fixing her hair as she prepares to lay out by the pool and read a romance novel. A police car makes an appearance, as does a tiger.
Honeymoon, Del Rey's third album, came out last September. Three videos from the record have been officially released to date. The first, "High by the Beach," finds her fighting off paparazzi with a large gun. "Music to Watch Boys to" -- possibly a nod to Walter Wanderley's swinging bachelor-pad-era classic "Music to Watch Girls By" -- features Del Rey on a lounge chair and watching men playing basketball. The 10-minute video for "Freak" sees her hanging out with Father John Misty, followed by an underwater excursion set to Debussy's "Clair de Lune."
