Lana Del Rey has just released her first big-budget music video ever with “Born To Die,” the latest single from her highly anticipated upcoming Interscope debut, due out in January.
Truly, it’s a gorgeous production from start to finish–from the sweeping cathedral interior shots, to the real-life tigers (aww, so pretty!), to that scintillating make-out sesh in the hot rod with her tall, tatted beau, to one majorly dramatic finale. (Make sure you stick it out ’til the very end!)
Without spoiling too much, the video acts as a perfect companion piece to the song: Slow-burning, beautiful, and ultimately…quite tragic.
Oh, and I’m not the only one who approves: Lana seems pretty pleased with the production as well! From Twitter:
Generally, I’m a man of few words, but i will say that this video is the most beautiful thing i’ve ever done.
I agree! So stay mad, Lana Del Haters–this one’s a thoroughly flaw-free production.
Born To Die will be released on January 31. (iTunes)
