Lana Del Rey has released her latest music video for the single “Love,” the first from her unreleased fifth studio album slated to be released later this year. The video itself centers around a typical tale of romance set in Del Rey’s trademark “West-Coast” setting until the pair of lovers ride off into space, vintage car and all.
While space is a new territory for Del Rey, she has stated in the past how interested she is in the non-terrestrial. In an interview with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, the singer stated, “Technologically, we’re advancing so quickly, I don’t want to miss any of it. I feel like we’re on the cusp just the way they were in the ‘60s, but in a different way.”
With Lana Del Rey constantly replicating a retro atmosphere in her work, it only makes sense for the baroque popstar to be inspired by the decade that revolutionized space technology.
