When Lana Del Rey premiered her video for “High by the Beach,” many fans were not sure what to expect. But instead of getting visuals of large amounts of greenery and Rastafarian vibes, the mellow singer showed up with heavy machinery and a kick ass persona.
The video, which was premiered on August 13th, depicted the singer dressed in a light blue night gown enjoying a morning in a beach house. Things don’t seem to stay pleasant for long, as she jolts from her beach house, where she then shoots a helicopter hovering int he distance with a machine gun of some sort. As the helicopter explodes, Lana del Rey glides away, carrying the machine gun and a seductive attitude.
“High by the Beach” is the first single and video from the artist’s forthcoming album, Honeymoon, which is supposed to release some time this September. Since the she has announced the release of her highly anticipate album, the singer has already gathered significant view on Youtube.
