Lana Del Rey premiered her new music video for the Honeymoon single “Freak” on Tuesday night, February 9.
In the video, Lana makes us travel to the 60s in California and involves us into the idea of a cult whose leader is played by musician Father John Misty surrounded by the girls featured on ‘Music to Watch Boys To‘.
The 11 minute aesthetic video produced by Lana Del Rey herself, Justin Benoliel, Rick Nowels, Kieron Menzies and Nabil features the song ‘Freak’ but also music by Claude Debussy.
“Come to California, be a Freak like me too.”
On February 9th, Lana Del Rey hosted an event at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, California to premiere her new music video ‘Freak.’
Lana arrived a few hours early and eventually the fans waiting in line outside were given some free signed merchandise. This included the gold LDR heart-shaped necklace and ‘Honeymoon’ on vinyl.
Fans heared Lana singing for soundcheck purposes whilst they were waiting outside of the venue. Lana performed a few songs acoustically after the video premiered.
In attendance were Chuck Grant, Johnny Blue Eyes, Pamela Cochrane, actress Emma Roberts and also Father John Misty, who appears in the video.

The long anticipated music video for ‘Music To Watch Boys To’ by Lana Del Rey has finally been released onto YouTube.
In the video, Lana lounges around with two gramophones by her side, joins some beautiful women as they all swim underwater and of course participates in watching boys play basketball.
The ethereal video was directed by Kinga Burza and is shot mostly in black and white with memorable colour sequences for the underwater shots.
Back in May, we interviewed one of the male models who was hired for the video. Click here to read about his experience if you haven’t already.

With the anticipation of Lana Del Rey‘s newest album being released next week (September 18), an album sampler has been uploaded to Lana’s VEVO channel to give fans a further taste of what’s to come.
The Honeymoon sampler only previews four songs, two of which have already been released on iTunes – ‘Terrence Loves You’ and ‘High By the Beach.’
However, this sample débuts previews of ‘Music to Watch Boys to’ and ‘Freak’ as well, along to beautiful imagery which helps to capture the mood of the record.
