Before you head out to the multiplex this evening, you need to watch the following video.
As if we needed another reason to be happy on a Friday, Lana Del Rey has us scribbling love notes on our Tumblrs and digging through gif libraries in an attempt to summarize just how much we love her official video for “Young And Beautiful.”
Released earlier today, the video for Del Rey’s contribution to the latest film adaptation of The Great Gatsby looks and feels as timeless as the song (and famous novel) that inspired them. Del Rey appears with her signature slight blur, giving her that 70s angelic effect, and upon her face are two glittering tear drops. She is backed by a full band and a sound stage fitting a diva with her talents. You can view the video below.
The soundtrack for The Great Gatsby is available now and comes highly recommended by our staff. The film is in theaters now. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on this video.
