Watch Lana Del Rey’s Video for ‘High By the Beach’
Lana Del Rey opened the week by unveiling “High By the Beach,” the second track to emerge from her upcoming full-length, Honeymoon. Now, she’s premiered a music video for the song.
Naturally, the new clip captures Del Rey beachside, but things aren’t quite so laissez-faire as the song might suggest. As the singer lounges in her inexplicably empty (save a pot of coffee and a telescope) beach house, a helicopter transporting intrusive paparazzi disrupts Del Rey and the song’s central plea. Leave it to the self-proclaimed “gangster Nancy Sinatra” to take matters into her own hands with a comically massive firearm. See for yourself in the video up above.
In addition to “High By the Beach,” Del Rey has already shared Honeymoon’s title track. The singer’s forthcoming LP will serve as her third to date, following last year’s critically acclaimed Ultraviolence.
