Lana Del Rey unveiled her new video for “Freak” late Tuesday night, the latest single off the singer’s 2015 LP Honeymoon. The 11-minute clip also stars Father John Misty, who plays the singer’s paramour in the gauzy, sun-soaked clip. “Baby if you want to leave / Come to California / Be a freak like me too,” Del Rey croons on the cut.
At around the 5:30 mark of the video, “Freak” fades down and the opening notes of Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” begin to swell, leading to a five-minute slow-motion sequence where Del Rey and a group of sea nymphs swirl around underwater; this portion is a nod to Del Rey’s “Music to Watch Boys To” video and stars the same girls from that clip. Eventually, Father John Misty is also submerged and given a baptism of sorts by the women around him.
Prior to the video’s Vevo premiere, “Freak” debuted Tuesday night at a special screening at Los Angeles’ Wiltern.
