New music video alert!
Lana Del Rey has unveiled a music video for her latest single, National Anthem, a song taken from the album Born to Die.
Del Rey, who most recently performed at the Radio 1 Hackney Weekend (wearing a gorgeous red dress might we add) is set to release new track National Anthem on 8th July.
What we particulary enjoy about the video is Del Rey’s ultra-glam portrail of former US President’s wife, Jacquelin Kennedy. Check out these beautiful still from the video.
The music video also features rapper A$AP Rocky as JFK.
Lana has admitted she is very pleased with the results of the video directed by Anthony Mandler.
She told BBC Radio 1:
Every so often, I top what I’ve done, and this video is definitely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I wrote a treatment for me and A$AP Rocky, because I just thought he’d be really perfect to star in it. … I love it.
A$AP Rocky on the other hand isn’t convinced fans won’t truly understand the video just yet.
We did a video together… some swag s**t. I play JFK, she plays Jackie O. Some cool, trippy s**t… People gonna get it in like three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.
What do you think of the 60′s throwback fashion in the video?
