On the heels of her sophomore album being released, Lana Del Rey has also revealed the video for her latest single, "Shades of Cool." The noirish style is in keeping with Del Rey's usual aesthetic, though she's taken it a bit further this time in terms of the old man creep factor. http://youtu.be/rJABBmAMXnY
With brief tinges of Repo Man, Jake Nava (who has directed videos for Beyonce, Britney Spears and, most importantly, Lindsay Lohan) takes the video for "Ride" up a notch by showing us a semi-vulnerable Lana Del Rey as she happily seduces an older man with a chic house in Beverly Hills. Is it love? Probably not. Just another distraction from the standard Del Rey-ian misery.
