I’m digging this new music video and song by Lana Del Rey & A$AP Rocky National Anthem. It’s very different.
Lana Del Rey has admitted she’s pleased with the results of the National Anthem video directed by Anthony Mandler.
She told BBC Radio 1:
‘Every so often, I top what I’ve done, and this video is definitely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I wrote a treatment for me and A$AP Rocky, because I just thought he’d be really perfect to star in it. … I love it.’
A$AP Rocky, who plays a big role in the video is convinced fans won’t truly understand the video just yet.
During a recent interview with 16bars.tv he said:
‘That’s just my homegirl. We did a video together. We did her video, it’s called ‘National Anthem.’ It’s off her album Born to Die. I play JFK, she plays Jackie O. Some cool trippy s***, some real 2015 s***. People are going to get it in three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.’
The single is due to be released on 8 July as a follow up to Video Games and Blue Jeans off her debut album Born To Die.
