Lana Del Rey is leading the hippy life in her visual for “Freak” which also stars the girls from the “Music to Watch Boys To” video and folk songwriter Father John Misty.
In the video, the “Born to Die” singer puts Misty onto some experimental drugs.
“Baby, if you wanna leave / Come to California / Be a freak like me, too / Screw your anonymity / Loving me is all you need to feel / Like I do,” she sings.
The 10-minute clip heads into darker tones though, as Del Rey pours red liquid akin to Kool-Aid into her mouth. But she’s not drinking it; it ends up overflowing down the sides of her chin.
Halfway through, the video takes a turn as the 30-year-old singer dives into a pool and looks into the camera as soft piano keys play in the background. And she’s not alone. The girls and Father Misty join in on the underwater adventure as Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” plays. Overall, it’s definitely giving cult-like feels.
The track comes from Del Rey’s latest effort, Honeymoon, which dropped last year. During the release, the crooner called this song “very sexy.”
Check out the clip above.
Morning everyone hope you're having a beautiful day. Album is up for pre-order today. Happy for you to hear some of my favourite songs from it soon. I think 'honeymoon' is the most beautiful one but 'terrence loves you' and 'God knows I tried' are incredibly close to my heart. Freak is also very sexy. http://lanadel.re/HoneymooniTig
