Lana Del Rey's New Music Video is a Slice of Retro Heaven
With two clashing love affairs.
By Lauren Valenti
We've been swooning over Lana Del Rey's new single "West Coast," off of her forthcoming album Ultraviolence, for quite some time. The track, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, is a slice of retro heaven and finally has a dreamy, black and white video counterpart.
In the video, we find Del Rey dipping between two very different love affairs amidst hazy California scenery. In the first scenario, she's roaming a beach and splashing in the waves with a young, leather-clad lover. In the other, she's donning diamonds and riding in a car with an old man in sunglasses while taking long drags from a cigarette. As the video comes to a close, it becomes clear who she's truly burning for.
