Lana Del Rey flies to the moon in dreamy Love music video
Lana Del Rey is the first woman on the moon in the new music video for her latest single, “Love.”
The singer-songwriter debuted the sci-fi-inspired visual Monday morning, channeling her signature throwback aesthetic in both the ballad’s smoldering sound and the video’s retro Americana look.
The grainy clip celebrates the wonders of young love, likening the feeling of youthful attraction to an interstellar journey as it traces the surreal fantasies of a group of junior couples who flirt, ride around in cars, and watch sunsets by the ocean before trekking across moonlit beaches and rocky craters on the surface of an alien planet.
Veteran music video director Rich Lee (Fergie’s “Clumsy,” Eminem’s “The Monster”) helmed the project, while superstar producers Rick Nowels (Adele, Madonna), Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani), and Emile Haynie (Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson) collaborated with Del Rey on the track.
“Love” debuted Saturday as the lead single from Del Rey’s fourth mainstream album, due for release later this year.
“I made my first four albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed,” she said of the release via press statement.
Del Rey’s last studio set, Honeymoon, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in 2015. She previously topped the U.S. chart with her 2014 LP Ultraviolence, the follow-up to her 2012 major label debut Born to Die.
